Amazing Radio hosted a stage at Powers as part of the Oxjam Kilburn Takeover on Saturday 23rd October.
Bands that played on our bill included Phantom (a side project of The Maccabees drummer and Jack Penate's guitarist), Chapter 24, Red Drapes and the headliners, one of Oxford's finest new bands Spring Offensive.
I took a few snaps of the night.
As Spring Offensive are our Featured Artist of the Week on Amazing Breakfast this week, I caught up with them before their set.
We thought it was only right to go to Funky Flavaz, an ice cream and milkshake shack over the road which also sold Halal meat!
From Funky Flavaz to the stage at Powers. Spring Offensive put on a really impressive live show. They told me in the interview that they treat every gig like it's the only time they'll get to do it and that showed. They started with Everything Other Than This as a nod to Amazing Radio as well. Their manager told me they hardly play it live but did it for us as we've been playing it on the network. Nice.
Hear them on the show every day this week on Amazing Radio, on DAB for the UK and online and amazingradio.co.uk for the rest of the world, 7-10am.
There is SO much passion in this song and loving the video too. Understated and awesome, the track that is...not the stalking elephant. That is far out.
The song features backing vocals from Ellie Goulding as well.
If you ever get a chance to see this band live you'll get why these four women are so immense. Nuff said. Check out the new video for their single Undertow.
Their long-awaited much-anticipated debut album is out on the 25th October. Happy days.
Listen to Jeff Leach on Amazing Breakfast here:
We have the wonderful Jeff Leach on Amazing Breakfast this Friday (8 Oct) to talk all about the Oxjam Kilburn Comedy Festival.
As compere and mastermind, he's roped in the likes of Trevor Lock, Alex Zane, Gail Porter, Josh Howie and Rufus Hound to perform their unique comedy at four London events between 10-13th October 2010.
Quite frankly it's a ruddy good cause. Did you know that since 2006, there have been more than 3,000 Oxjam events, raising more than £1 million for the charity. Mmmm indeed.
And because of all this, Oxjam Kilburn have given us some major love on their blog. Check out their blog post below...
