When: Thursday 29th August, 8pm
Where: Latest Music Bar
Melting Vinyl Presents Mark Mulcahy, a Massachusetts born singer-songwriter returning to the UK for a brief 3-date tour of the South of England promoting his new album, Dear Mark J. Mulcahy, I Love You. Sandwiched between gigs in London and Salisbury, Mark will be performing at Brighton’s Latest Music Bar, formerly the Joogleberry Playhouse, a lovely venue just a stone’s throw away from Brighton Pier.
With a majestic voice that cuts through the airwaves like a great ship through the water, his stunning vocal performance hints towards influences of Jeff Buckley and Mayer Hawthorne crossed with a Brit-pop clarity and twang. From listening to the preview tracks of the album, Let the Fireflies Fly Away and She Makes The World Turn Backwards, it is clear that the record is a collection of highly contagious alt-pop anthems that you’ll be humming after for weeks on end.
Support from Brighton folk quartet, House of Hats. Expect close vocal harmonies and rich acoustic textures. They are certainly one to watch!
Tickets are £10 +bf and are available at the venue and online at http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/QNF2808
