I'm curating a night at The End Festival on 21 November. This is very exciting for a number of reasons - firstly that I've been a fan of said festival in Crouch End for years, secondly it's another co-promotion with The Local who do fantastic things for new music... and thirdly, the line up: I've managed to snag Shoreditch busker turned hot new talent Eliza Shaddad, Australian folktronica songstress Caitlin Park and the equally skilled Londoner De'Borah all on the same bill at the lovely ex-British Legion social club Earl Haig Hall.

Some other Other Woman favourites are also performing across all four nights of the festival including Bridie Jackson and the Arbour, Evelinn Trouble, Mishaped Pearls, The Drink, Leaf Library and Malka. There's also going to be a mini-conference with guest speakers, panelists from The Local and international industry delegates. Ooh ee! Check out the website for more details, and tickets (weekend pass only £25!) here.
Curator of The End, Howard Monk says: “Crouch End is an area full of creative and media types yet only really well known for decent restaurants. However, there are a number of excellent events if you scratch the surface, and this is a fresh one for the calendar, perhaps a little more ambitious in scale. We’re keen to bring excellent touring bands out of the usual epicenters of Shoreditch, Camden, Central London up to Crouch End for a couple of nights. Not just celebrating local acts (although there are a number on the bill), but mixing those with touring acts makes a great event.”

Last week on The Other Woman on Amazing Radio (available to listen again now!) there was so much great new music we hardly knew where to start! Trash Kit are back with a brand new album out in December on brilliant indie Upset the Rhythm. We’ve got a track from Nat Johnson’s new album due out mid-November and trust us, every song we hear just gets better and better! Dear Pariah has launched her stunning EP Engulf on the world too and we’ll be playing the title track from that too.
There’s also Sharon Van Etten, Auclair, Wildbirds & Peacedrums and Hunter As A Horse.
