Get In Her Ears live @ The Finsbury w/ Temples Of Youth, 08.12.17

Following a host of super amazing bands playing for us over the last year – including The Magnettes, H.Grimace, REWS, Trash Kit, Kid Cupid and Deux Furieuses – we were back at The Finsbury last Friday for our monthly dose of incredible live music.

Kicking off the night is Dorset’s The Gravity Drive with their swirling, emotionally rich effervescent pop.

Second band of the night HMS Morris have travelled from Cardiff to blow us all away with the totally dreamy and impressively eclectic sounds of their playful, psychedelic offerings.

Returning to The Finsbury to play for us for a second time, headliners Temples Of Youth cast their hypnotic spell with their unique brand of sparkling, musically rich neo-pop. Oozing their impossibly cool swathe and majestic, emotion strewn splendour, the Winchester duo succeed in completely captivating us all once again.

Huge thanks to the three magnificent bands who played for us on Friday. And make sure you all join us back at The Finsbury to see in the new year in style on 12th January 2018 with Witch Fever, The Nyx, ARXX and more!

Get In Her Ears Live at The Finsbury w/ The Magnettes, 10.11.17

Following a host of super amazing bands playing for us over the last year – including H.Grimace, REWS, Trash Kit, The Empty Page, Kid Cupid and Deux Furieuses – we were back at The Finsbury last Friday for our monthly dose of incredible live music.

Kicking off the night is the utterly captivating, and truly dreamy, sounds of Carolyn’s Fingers. With their haunting, ethereal splendour, they cast a spell over us all in an instant.

Next up we’re privileged to host DIDI with her first full band show. Oozing all the energy-fuelled, empowering vibes and punk-pop joy, it’s a truly uplifting set – and hopefully the first of many that this collective have to offer.

Having travelled down from Birmingham to play for us, penultimate artist of the night MeMe Detroit delivers all the reverb-strewn riffs and gritty, soulful vocals you could ever desire. With a unique sonic force, and an incredible rousing magnetism, she delivers a wonderfully raucous set.

Drawing the night to a close is something we’ve been extremely excited about: we’re honoured that The Magnettes have travelled all the way from Sweden for Get In Her Ears! Set on crushing the patriarchy with their own unique brand of ‘fuck-pop’, the trio succeed in completely blowing us away. Steeped in a Riot Grrrl-inspired passion, with added sparkly pop sensibilities, donning their matching ‘Psycho Witch’ cheer-leading outfits, front-women Rebecka and Sanna treat us to something truly memorable and a little bit spooky; with fun-filled energy and empowering force in equal measure, it’s the perfect end to the night.

Huge thanks to the four bands who played for us! And don’t miss our next night at The Finsbury on 8th December, when we’ll have Temples Of Youth, Chorusgirl, HMS Morris and The Gravity Drive – another unmissable lineup!

Get In Her Ears Live at The Finsbury w/ H.Grimace, 13.10.17

A year since our first #Blogtober night at The Finsbury, and following a load of super amazing bands playing for us over the last ten months – including REWS, Trash Kit, The Empty Page, Kid Cupid and Deux Furieuses – we’re back at the North London venue with three more incredible bands.

Friday 13th may be unlucky for some, but we were super lucky to kick off our night with the thrashing, garage-punk sounds of Brighton duo Sit Down.

Next up, the truly joyous, sparkling pop-punk of trio Charmpit was all kinds of wonderful, leaving us all feeling empowered and slightly spooky…

Headliners H.Grimace delivered an impeccable set to a packed-out venue. Their gritty post-punk sound and insightful social commentary blowing us all away with a unique, blunt power and Sonic Youth-inspired haze.

HUGE thanks to all the bands who played for us – we’re feeling very grateful to have been able to host another night of amazing new music and lovely people!
