The Orchestra Pit


Scaledown #94

(Friday 6th December)

What is this I see before my very mince pies? Cor blimey, it's a Christmas Jamboree Scaledown style! We've got all the usual oddballs and freaks, complemented by some musical guests whom they will be hosting. It promises to be a right ol' bleedin' Fitzrovian knees up...


The Orchestra Pit
Scaledown #93
(Friday the 18th October)

Ladies and Gentle t'ings, would you kindly be seated for the 93rd Scaledown... Rather than look like we know what we're doing up here, we are simply going to relay to you the entertainment we have on offer:

Thom Driver - Thom shall be previewing tracks from the debut album by his band Piper's Son - 'The Roar From Behind' [released Nov. 11th on our very own Vacilando '68 Recordings]; enigmatic, with an artist's eye for detail, his songwriting structures are both intricate and eclectic, painting expressionistically musical canvases, with melodies that hang in the air before firmly lodgin' in yer noggin.


The Orchestra Pit


The autumnal winds blow gentle in September but with enough wind to toss up a musical salad by way of the Scaledown club. We urge you to get the dressing and attend our next event which occurs at The King and Queen on the corner of Foley Street in London's buoyant Fitzrovia on Friday the 27th September at 7.30 of the clock. It is, as always, FREE to attend and the acts are, in no particular order:
