Soft Rock Cafe – Joel Sarakula / The Higher Planes / Itchy Teeth
Fri 17 May
Do you like Soft Rock Music? Are sweet falsetto vocals and soulful beats your guilty pleasure? Then welcome to the Soft Rock Cafe at Paper Dress Vintage, Hackney on May 17 featuring the latest and greatest in live and pre-recorded Soft Rock, Soul and Bedroom Disco.
Joel Sarakula (UK/AUS) plays Soulful Pop with Soft-Rock and Disco influences, looking out at a 70s tinged world through vintage glasses. He has travelled the world in search of his muse and performs a seemingly never ending run of shows. With personal tastes that span from the more avant-garde to soul and pop greats like Sly Stone and Hall & Oates, there are clear nods to contemporaries like Erlend Oye and Toro Y Moi in terms of ambition and style.
THE HIGHER PLANES
After having a bright idea, the Higher Planes went out one day and bought a cauldron. In it they added some boys and girls, some rock and roll rhythms, the leftovers from the night before’s Memphis soul stew, some harmonies, and some pagan eschatology. After pouring it all out into the middle of a stone circle during Samhain, they left to purchase assorted musical instruments, and educate themselves about their forms and potentials in order that they should travel and play throughout the land.
Having been locked away for the last few months getting new material together, Itchy Teeth are playing their first gig with a new lineup at the Soft Rock Cafe, before heading off to Germany for a mini tour to test out the new songs.
For fans of pop/rock!
Mr. Mellow (Germany)
Paul Milne (Green Seagull)
Paper Dress Vintage will stay open til 2.30am so you can dance deep into the morning… softly.
