Scaledown your Friday this Friday on Friday with Friday.

Please be informed that the 40th Scaledown Live Performance Event is due to occur this Friday, 22nd February, at the King & Queen in London's Glittery West End. Entertainment will be provided by the following persons/ensembles: The Bottle Brunettes - The Bottle Brunettes are a super(smashing,great)group formed by Poncho from Hicks Milligan-Prophecy with some of his favourite musicians. A "Soundclash Of The Titans" it seems.... Manuela Barczewski - Manuela performed at an earlier Scaledown event under the name blue elephant combining her songs of everyday life observations with guitar and effects. Manuela will, this evening, scale down to the bare bones of just vocal and guitar. Little Johnny Anger - Solo baritone electric guitar, loops, voice and effects. For Scaledown johnny will be playing a special electric set, something different to his usual solo acoustic ambisonics. Like listening to music through an aural kaleidoscope looking out the window of a greyhound bus at passing endless prairie. Bleddyn Jones - Solo 5 string bass musings. Katharine Blake - The ethereal and gothic folk of Miss Blake makes a debut at Scaledown. Katharine is also a member of alternative classic outfit Mediaeval Baebes and experimental gothic band Miranda Sex Garden. Ian Evans - Last time Ian performed at Scaledown he was one half of Elevenses (and has since become one third of Elevenses). This time round he will be performing as 100% of Ian Evans with a solo performance of his delightfully quirky tunes. As usual this will commence from 7.30pm, full details can be found on our website at We would also like to take a moment to mention an interesting event occurring tomorrow (Tuesday 19th) at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank, London. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will be performing pieces by Mozart and Beethoven in a "rule free" setting (i.e. you can bring a drink in, go out and get one, clap when you like, etc.) with additional music being performed before and after the concert in the foyer.
