For the first time in London, we will be hosting a live music stage at Casa & Plaza Pastor!

3.00PM – 3.30PM – Leather.head
LEATHER.HEAD deal in janky rhythms and soaring saxophone which walk through the shadows of This Heat and Lounge Lizards. They are still yet to release a single song but have been forging a name for themselves with the anxious/dynamic live shows.

3.45PM – 4.15PM – Tiña
Introducing South-London’s Tina. The band is a supergroup-of-sorts, made up of members of Bat-Bike, Uncle Tesco, Pet Grotesque and Goat Girl. Debut single I Feel Fine was recently released on the Speedy Wunderground label, produced by mastermind Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Squid, Black Midi). Following on from support slots with the likes of Sorry and Pottery, Tina head to the Independent Label Market for an intimate, stripped back show.

4.30PM – 5.00PM – Alan Power
Alan Power is a UK based singer, songwriter, recording artist and comedian. Like something out of Phoenix Nights, Power emerged from nowhere early last year following a series of much talked about live appearances. Spending the latter half of 2018 making an Album and touring extensively, he sold out two London shows with no music online, and shared a stage with The Vaccines, Matt Maltese, Jack Ladder, Spector, Nick Allbrook and The International Teachers Of Pop among others. His music is rooted in traditional country and folk with notable leanings towards the abstract / post punk and experimental. His live show has provoked attention for its unconventional nature and unpredictability. Following the release of critically acclaimed debut album; Greatest Hits Vol. 1 – the mysterious Power looks like he might be one of the surprise breakthrough acts of 2019.
