August 3 at Karova Lounge will have the extremely gifted Jesse Cerro, better known as Montaigne appearing. Coming off the back of her awesome debut album Glorious Heights, Montaigne is set to support Cyndi Lauper and Blondie at A Day On The Green.
With plenty of quality acts still coming to town, what better way to end the month than with Cookin’ On Three Burners who will play Karova Lounge on June 30. The deep funk/soul/jazz trio have recently scorched eight tracks onto analogue tape… and made it available to you via vinyl or digital. Lab Experiments Vol.1: Mixin’ featured the smokey vocals of Stella Angelico, and word has it that she will light up a ‘fourth’ burner on the night, so to speak. Get down to this if you love your Hammond organ a swellin’ and a screamin’!

Our long national nightmare is over: Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell is back.
