Being compelled to share GREAT music is how Drumz Of The South began; -then, posting photos and words about music that was getting right into my system led me to organise events at Brixton’s Plan B, a tent at Antic Banquet festival and many, many events in and outside of Crystal Palace’s Antenna Studios. I am now taking up the baton from Katherine & Charlie Hannah (Itchy Teeth) and organising the next Live from Alexandra Nurseries event on the 28th of November.
It will feature talented friends Breezy Lee & The Spaceshipman, Duke Bradley (and band of more fantastic musicians) & Alain McLean (Moine Dubh), playing Blues, Soul & Rock n Roll.
Alexandra Nurseries is a family-run & community oriented garden & vintage home-wares shop & cafe in Penge, South London. This year it was deservedly featured in both Vogue and Time Out. The music will play outside, under the canopy, framed by plants, pots & fairy lights. It’s a magical and unique space in which to listen to music and socialise and I am proud to organise an event there.

THIS FRIDAY is the 3rd of our very popular Café Sessions, where we offer up a selection of brilliant local LIVE music for free. Please sign up to café@antennastudios.co.uk to ensure entry as we were absolutely rammo last time! Very much looking forward to seeing Cloudier Skies, who’s haunting film noir inspired music has been gracing the café stereo since we discovered them a few weeks back.
It’s followed by the opening reception of Kat Kon’s candy coloured illustrations inspired by the “outsiders” of music, film & popular culture:
The picture in the flyer is inspired by Beatle Mania.
She drew this pic of me a few years back.
“This is Georgina,my old flatmate. She’s a photographer and drinks about 20 cups of tea every day. She likes writing random words on the wall and on posteds.She also loves space,birds and maps and once tried to cut out all the red roads out of a map.”
