Veronica Falls to kick off new series of Converse Gigs at The 100 Club
Frankie & The Heartstrings and Cheatahs to play first monthly date too
The night, taking place on October 17, is a showcase of Wichita Records artists. It also includes Sunderland five piece, Frankie And The Heartstrings and Wichita’s latest signings, London’s Cheatahs.
For nine nights in July and August, The 100 Club was host to Converse Represent, which saw artists including the likes of Blur, Nas, and Plan B play exclusive, intimate shows. Blur played a set that drew heavily on 'Modern Life Is Rubbish', but also featured seldom-heard B-sides and new track 'Under The Westway'.
Paul Weller's show was attended by Liam Gallagher, who watched from the wings, and after the show promised that his band Beady Eye would one day play the 100 Club themselves.
The Converse and 100 Club-curated music series began with Graham Coxon’s performance in June 2011. Since then, Gorillaz Sound System, The Rapture, The Vaccines, Chairlift, Ghostpoet, Azari & III and many more have taken to the stage.
Tickets for Veronica Falls' Converse Gig are free and available now, exclusively via Converse UK.
