In the Pull Yourself Together Living Room...
An evening with Edmund Cottam and Christopher Eatough
An extra special set for After Hours from two of the finest songwriters in the land, playing together. This is going to be super special, as Ed Cottam and Chris Eatough combine forces to play some of each others songs, and a few added extras too.
Chris writes songs for late nights and empty bottles. He has gained favorable comparisons to Ryan Adams, Elliot Smith, Conor Oberst and Sufjan Stevens.
Ed's storytelling lyrics have a genuine honesty shining through, and this coupled with his tuneful melodies suggests late nights spent listening to and pouring over the lyrics of Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.
Just imagine how good they are going to be together!
Support comes from Manchester's finest uke-pop-star, Jam on Bread.
And finally in the Bedroom we have The Chantilly Belles
Habitat are supplying us with furniture! Amaze!
Craft Mafia will be joining us for the whole evening!
Should be lots of fun.
Oh also there will be a bar.
