There's a trio of very cool Danish bands touring the UK this week! They still have 2 shows left in Bristol and Cambridge - more information on the Enid's Facebook page. If you're looking for good live music in Birmingham keep an eye out on the A Way To Get Out Of It Facebook page.
Stage times ran late because of the football, I have to admit I was getting kinda tired and I don't think I managed to capture Bodega quite right. They were such an expressive band, I hope I get a chance to sketch them again sometime! Vital Idles were a great choice for warm up act at this show, I recommend you check out their music if you like Bodega.
Haim and Maggie Rogers at O2 Apollo, Manchester, 11th June 2018
Hey! Sorry for the delay scanning gig sketches this week. I was away at the beginning of the week and then in the process of replacing a new laptop so it took a little bit of time to install software and scanners and things but everything is ready to go!
My sister wanted to sit in the circle to watch Haim so I had to adapt to faster gesture drawing rather than working slower trying to pin down a likeness (we were just too far from the stage to see details)
I’ve been given a table through the waiting list for Glasgow Comic Con on 30th June! I had an amazing time there last year so I’m really looking forward to it! The return of Birmingham Zine Festival is on Sunday 1st July so I’ve booked the overnight coach so not to miss out!
Anna Burch, Hatchie and Hoopla Blue at The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, Monday 7th May 2018
Winding down a beautiful summery day sketching Anna Burch, Hatchie and Hoopla Blue at the Hare and Hounds.
Anna Burch will be playing in Glasgow (with Hatchie) and London this week, and then back in the summer for more UK dates and festivals! (including The Great Escape with Hatchie)
Hoopla Blue played some new music and mentioned recording stuff soon so look out for that!
Back over at the Hare & Hounds for Goat Girl later so hopefully more sketches to come!
I started sketching bands on location to practice drawing guitars and musicians to inform my music themed comics while I was at University. I enjoyed the process of documenting live events this way, and continued to sketch bands until 'gig sketches' became it's own project.
That Music Zine is a tumblr blog where I post all the sketches with links to songs and when I have some free time I compile them into printed zines.
