Balham's vibrant music venue that is 'The Bedford' will tomorrow be hosting a night of UK stars who will this March be heading to Austin's prestigious SXSW (South by Southwest) music/ arts festival. The festival has previously helped launch the careers of UK acts: Paolo Nutini, Newton Faulkner, James Morrison and Amy Macdonald amongst others, and so it is hoped it will for this year's raft of UK acts.
The line-up for the night includes a tasty slice of UK singer-songwriter talent, including: Jon Allen, Lucie Silvas, Foy Vance, Lo Star, Bens Brother, Noush Skaugen, Kristyna Myles, Salena Mastroianni, Amateur Transplants, The Blues Circus and guests to be announced.
The night will also feature a prize-draw, celebrity auction, with funds raised going towards raising the profiles of the UK acts. More info on the project can be found here: www.myspace.com/thebedfordatsxsw
Tickets cost just £20 in advance (check below for availability) or £25 on the door. Doors open at 7PM.
