Panda Su + Esperi + Sarah J Stanley & Fiona Keenan @ Project Slogan = SELL OUT!!!

Panda Su recently parked up at our favourite local art gallery, Project Slogan on 17th February to play to a sold out LoSt & FoUnD. And my gosh did they blow us all away. As part of their ‘I Begin’ EP launch and tour, they came along and rocked out our tiny venue with the support of Esperi and Sarah J Stanley and Fiona Keenan. Doors were first come first serve and within 15 minutes we’d sold out. Brilliant. Soon enough we were underway with musical delights from Esperi.

After a short fag break, everyone huddled back in to the gallery to watch local sensations Sarah J Stanley and Fiona Keenan perform together. I am still amazed to this day how they haven’t been lapped up by a record deal. Nevertheless, they remain my two favourite musicians in Aberdeen. Their banter is pretty hilarious too.

After the wonderful support from Esperi and Sarah J Stanley and Fiona Keenan, we continued to the final act of the evening. Panda Su have done so bloody well for themselves these past few years and it really shines through in their new EP. Those who were lucky enough to be there on the night had the chance to pick up the new EP before it is officially released in the coming months. Having listened to it, i can safely say, it is simply lovely. I urge you all to buy it when you can. Anyways, back to the night. In good spirits and to a silent audience, the band kicked off with their first song off their new EP, Bee Song. It looked like this.

Thank you to everyone who came and showed their support, bought the artist’s merchandise and helped to make this such a fantastic success. It really was one of our favourite gigs here at LoSt & FoUnD. I hope to work on more things with Panda Su in the future so please keep watching. Sorry again to those we had to turn away on the night. Till next time..

L&F love to all you beautiful people,

Mark McCabe + PJ Bond kick off their European tour HERE!

 

Next Sunday (6th March) Mark McCabe and PJ Bond will be kicking off a thirty date tour and LoSt & FoUnD will be their starting line!  Please have a read below and see what these guys are about because they are truly awesome!

 

Many of us will know Mark McCabe as being the tall skinny one who worked in local coffee shop Kilau. But he’s done a lot more since upping foot and moving from Aberdeen to Paris. In the past few years he has played numerous shows around the country, shared stages with performers including, Chris T-T, Frank Turner, Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly, Meursault, Lemuria, Grass Cut, Serafina Steer and many more. Last year he played Lexapalooza… Lite and was so good they invited him back again this year! ALSO… *takes deep breath* Later last year Mark signed to the wonderful Brave or Invincible Records (a new label who are lapping up the Aberdeen talent) AND at the end of 2010, Mark came 2nd in a UK wide competition to release a split single with Frank Turner, a competition which was judged by him and his label Xtra Mile. Busy times indeed.

‘This is good, honest songwriting, which would take a heart of stone to dislike. Well worth checking out.’ Is This Music?
‘Mark couples ramshackle cynical folk musings together with upbeat quirky pop songs. Why not check him out?’ The FLY
‘Paris based Mark McCabe likes to “moan about things through song”. Having been a highlight for many at the last Lexapalooza Lite, Mark returns to a later time slot with his intelligent brand of folk pop. One to watch for the future, and not to be missed.’ Lexapalooza

We love Mark McCabe here at LoSt & FoUnD. We’ve put him on so many shows and launches I think I’ve lost count! But that’s not the point. He’s coming home to start his 30 date European tour supporting the fantastic PJ Bond and we want you to hear them do what they do best!

Raised on the words and songs of Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Blind Melon, it was obvious PJ Bond’s teenage-hood would lead him to the punk/indie scene of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Having played in many bands including, Marigold, The Color Fred (Equal Vision Records), and Charlotte Sometimes (Geffen/Interscope Records), PJ is now signed as a solo artist to Black Numbers recordings; home to bands, The Arteries, Banquets and many more.

“PJ Bond is the kind of guy who absolutely rules open mic sessions. The guy who could play for 6 hours without repeating a song. The kind of guy who plays 14 songs you’ve never heard before and all of which you love, but you don’t want to tell him you like it for fear of not recognizing something classic by someone important. The kind of guy who has developed such a studied appreciation of so many different artists and styles that even when the song is an original, it feels like it has a piece of something else in it, even if that piece is only barely and ephemerally discernible.” – citizendick.org

PANDA SU

LoSt & FoUnD brings in the New Year by teaming up with IMP for this in February –

 

 

A one off chance to catch the incredible Panda Su, stripped back and in a ridiculously intimate environment at Project Slogan.

2010 was a brilliant year for Fife based duo Panda Su, with them playing a string of festivals including Fence Collective’s Homegame Festival for the second consecutive year, Secret Garden Party, Belladrum, Wickerman and Hinterland festival too. Their EP “Sticks & Bricks” brought in rave reviews across the country, “After several intense, gorgeous shows, this debut EP confirms Su and her cohorts as one of the most promising new bands around at the moment.” – is this music?

If 2010 was anything to go by, i suggest you catch them now before these guys make it big!!
