Live at the Tin Pit Club, Mabe Community Hall - opening night on the 29th January...
On Saturday 29 January Mabe’s Tin Pit Club opens its doors for the first of a series of monthly gigs. The Tin Pit’s opening promotion delivers on a music policy that promises quality and diversity, when it combines Cornwall’s premier acoustic roots group, Dalla, with garage punks, My Elvis Blackout, who will play an acoustic set.
Dalla will headline the Tin Pit Club’s opening night fresh from a sell out show at Glasgow’s international Celtic Connections festival just two days earlier. Dalla routinely raise the bar for acoustic roots music in Cornwall, igniting the traditional with their boundless imagination and irrepressible, infectious approach to music. Dalla combine a love of their native Cornish culture with contemporary flair, an intimate familiarity with the unique Cornish tradition and an abundance of creative ideas.
Garage punks, My Elvis Blackout bring an edge to any live event. Fronted by ‘Mabe boy’ Harry Pitts, for the Tin Pit Club’s opening promotion My Elvis Blackout provide a direct local connection. Taking time out from a spell recording material for a new album for release later in the year, the band will be playing a stripped back acoustic set of established live favourites plus some of the new songs destined for the album.
As well as top quality music, the Tin Pit Club will be offering top quality food from the Soup Kitchen: hot home cooking, beverages and brownies. Punters should bring their own wine and beer (no corkage charge).
Tin Pit Club co-promoter, Richard Scrase says:
“Our first night is indicative of the approach we intend taking in coming months, when we combine two of the county’s top bands from different genres. Couple that with quality home cooking at prices that won’t be matched anywhere else on a Saturday night plus a BYO policy and it’s a night out of unrivalled value for money. Community hool cool – it’s on the way.”
