confirmed for Converse June Show at 100 Club
CONVERSE GIGS @ 100 CLUB ANNOUNCE
NINA NESBITT AND LOWER THAN ATLANTIS FOR JUNE SHOW
Nina Nesbitt and Lower Than Atlantis confirmed for specially curated Converse Gig @ 100 Club on Monday 10th June 2013
While we look forward to the sun scorching the June sky (fingers crossed), Converse invites you to cool down with an exclusive intimate show with one of Britain’s most exciting young talents, Nina Nesbitt and an acoustic co-headline set from Lower Than Atlantis which promises to beat those Monday night blues.
The show presents two of the hottest up-and-coming acts on the Universal Music UK roster, chosen by the winner of Converse’s ‘Curate Your Own Gig’ competition. The long list of artists was compiled specially for the occasion by Universal’s creative and commercial team, Globe. Run in conjunction with Office for Converse’s recent Get Dirty campaign, this competition has provided an experience that is a first for the 100 Club and the Converse Gigs audience, and promises to be a night like no other.
In the last 18 months Nina Nesbitt has gone from playing tiny Edinburgh shows and relative obscurity to touring with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Example. It all began with Nina uploading her songs to YouTube with videos that she created herself. The songs gathered attention and gained momentum culminating with Nina winning ‘Singer/Songwriter New Artist of the Year 2012’ on iTunes last year. She is currently recording her debut album with Jake Gosling (Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, One Direction). Very impressive for an artist who is still only 18 years old.
In 2007 a new band formed from the ashes of the Watford hardcore scene, Lower Than Atlantis. After years of self-funded albums, constant touring and growing, 2012 saw the band head out on their first sell-out headline tour and sign to Island Records. Fusing Punk, Hardcore, Rock with a pop twist, Lower Than Atlantis are a genuine force to be reckoned with.
Tickets are FREE and will be available exclusively from Wednesday 29th May via the Converse UK website: www.converse.co.uk/conversegigs
The Converse and 100 Club curated music series kicked off in June of 2011 when Graham Coxon headlined and played the first packed out show. Since then the likes of Gorillaz Sound System, The Rapture, The Vaccines, Chairlift, Ghostpoet, Azari & III, Wild Belle, Toddla T, The Cribs, Ghostface Killah, Doom, Gallows and many more have taken to the stage. Cementing the success of this unique partnership, Converse and 100 Club continue to deliver an exciting line-up for fans, showcasing today’s best and freshest emerging artists. The partnership also gives 100 Club the opportunity to introduce a new generation to its renowned gigs, by once again bringing the best music to its legendary stage. 100 Club will continue to oversee the schedule of performances as it has for over 65 years, in addition to presenting this new free series alongside Converse.
