On Saturday 23rd June oh mercy management will showcase the cream of their crop at The MacBeth in Hoxton.
Born in the summer of 2011 oh mercy is by no means two fat guys behind a desk coining it in... It’s more like two fat guys behind a desk living the dream – spurred on by sheer hunger for great new music. Now oh mercy is allying its passion and enthusiasm with the likeminded folk at legendary London club night THIS FEELING to bring you SIX of the most vibrant and exciting acts around today, along with an exclusive DJ set from JAMES ENDEACOTT (ex-Rough Trade, signed The Libertines).
Come share our Joy on June 23rd– listen to the bands, embrace your neighbour and whistle a merry tune as your life suddenly gets better...
Gifted London-born singer/songwriter EUGENE McGUINNESS (‘pop perfection’ THE GUARDIAN) will be playing 'live' ahead of his forthcoming album release ‘The Invitation to the Voyage’ (Domino Records - out August 6th). Like a cross between Bowie and Miles Kane, Eugene’s music is distinctive, primal yet playful, swaggering yet soulful, anthemic yet sonically experimental –genuinely powerful, fantastical pop, and what a voice!
