#TheScoop This Spring
Yup. We're back. After a 60-day hiatus, Front Page News has events about to spring up everywhere. If you were there with us last year, thank you for believing in us and our community goals. We did 16 Concerts and introduced Barcelona musicians who previously only played in free concerts and open mics. 68% of our audiences bought more than one ticket. That IS phenomenal. You'll be happy to know that some of these artists you came to see are now touring Europe and the U.S. and YOU were part of making this happen for them.
2019 was the start of Wherever Sessions Concerts being added to our mix and we are super grateful to the artists who recorded their sets, as well as to the live audiences who listened to every word the songwriters sang. We will be publishing those videos and starting a Podcast this Spring. You asked, we listened: We are also launching a Mobile Place, making queues a thing of the past. Have you seen our website on a mobile phone? You can tap Address or WhatsApp for live help getting yourself to the concert on the day of the show.
Our 3 acts in one night event format kicks off on Leap Day 2020. Buy a ticket. Bring friends. It goes from 4 to 8 pm in EDGE Brewing Craft Beer Venue in Poblenou. The beauty about playing 3 musicians in one event is that Act 1 starts things slow and the music escalates throughout the party, ending with a band. On 29 Feb it starts with Acoustic Blues by Dylan Cloud, who will likely end his set with electric guitar solos and ballistic drumming by our Resident Percussionist Bryan Curtis. Act 2 will be Titan James, who recently wowed us playing live in Craft Barcelona near Jaume (one of our favourite off-night haunts). His presence is like a cross between Springsteen and Bryan Adams, with a unique voice that you'll notice only sings originals and no covers (well he might play a cover ONE day, we shall see). Act 3 will be Liam Cloud and Jezebel Lies. Liam is one of the co-founders of Front Page News and he is literally on the cusp of releasing a full album in 2020. On Leap Day you get to hear his beautifully strewn lyrics, mad guitar skills, originals and artfully deconstructed covers. This band is Tight---it will end the event on a high.
#LeapDay 2020 Party - 29 February 2020
If you're into knowing more about the band, scroll down for the latest on Bryan (Drums), Joseph (Bass), Dylan Charbeneau (Keyboard) and Liam Cloud (Guitarist and Singer-Songwriter). Bookmark The Scoop and you'll get to read juicy tales about Barcelona-based musicians as they go live.
So. Three Concerts in one Leap Day Party. Choose any musician, RSVP and your ticket is good for the entire party, from 4 to 8 pm. Almost all of the Ticket Sales go to musicians so we don't tend to have a big guest list. We welcome potential sponsors, writers and Industry people to ask, but do try, as we do, to pitch in to help these hard-working musicians who have real-life expenses like guitar strings and rent. Our tickets are not astronomical, but our future goals are, so give what you can.
See you in our next show and come say hi. I'm never too busy to meet new people or the next musicians we may book. I'll probably be the vj behind the mixer next to the projector, or just next to the stage having a damn good time.
Stay happy and healthy,
vj baby k
and Resident VJ
