Gavin Osborn w/ support from Cat Eliza T [Free Entry Front Lounge Show]

Don't Miss Out
Time: Thursday 8.00pm
Cost: FREE ENTRY

Free entry gig in the Maple Leaf Lounge at The Talking Heads. With acoustic singer song writer Gavin Osborn. Plus support from Cat Eliza T.

Gavin Osborn’s plan for his second record was to make an upbeat album, filled with positive songs to perk us all up in these troubled times. But the plan failed, and ‘Meeting Your Heroes’ is essentially about love, heartbreak and nostalgia. Which is far better. Featuring a collection of live favourites including ‘Charlie’s 18th Birthday”, ‘Sweet Bedford’ and ‘FM2030’, the story of the famous cryogenically-frozen futurist.

Previously, Gavin has written for and performed on BBC Radio 4 and Resonance FM. He has done gigs with poet-songwriter-comedian John Hegley, toured with Tellison and Encyclopedia, toured Australia and ended 2008 at a sold out Hammersmith Apollo alongside Jarvis Cocker, Malcolm Middleton and comedians Stewart Lee, Ricky Gervais and Robin Ince. This year, Gavin will be touring the UK, performing three new story shows with the award-winning Daniel Kitson in Regents Park, doing a run of shows at the Edinburgh Festival and will return to the Latitude Festival.

Influenced by everyone from Loudon Wainwright III to R. Kelly, Gavin has written this press release himself and, much as with online status updates, is a little uncomfortable talking about himself in the third person. If you bought ‘In The Twee Small Hours’ (his first record) you’ll know what to expect. If you didn’t, this is going to blow your tiny minds
