Music firing on all cylinders
Designed with natural acoustics and natural, The Forge is an intimate music venue in Camden with a living wall of plants. It is the perfect place for concerts such as Fired Up, a new weekly music event that hosts breaking talent across the UK. The doors open at 7pm, are completely free, and are suitable for children.
Artists include La Fin Absolute du Monde, a neo-noir duo whose dark ambient music feels eerie, yet soothing at the same time. Kamp David on the other hand, is a five-man band, whose songs, to me, sound like Meatloaf 'Lite'. You can also listen to Pru Fontaine, a solo artist, whose melodic voice adds to the dreamy notes of her guitar.
Scott McMahon is an eclectic musician and songwriter who plays anything from the guitar, bass, piano, drums, and orchestral brass instruments. He records his own songs in his basement, and is heavily influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
When two boys from Baghdad went in search of a guitarist for their band, the search took them to Brighton, where they found an 80s wild child, whose music calls on mystical spirits. Bagdad Scraps was born. Other acts include Pete Kosanovich, Miss Diva Karamel, and Jordan Le Fay.
The Cellophane Flowers celebrate the days of LPs, and much of their music has the vibe of a vinyl record. They are influenced by a wide range of cultures, from our own 80s pop to tribal drums.
