Ask Me PR In The City – Day 2!

In The CityThe CordelsMy AlbatrossThe Vanguards



So… Monday night and Day 2 of ITC. A HUGE night for Ask Me PR as we had 3 bands playing (including one playing in two venues).

At BBC Introducing In The City @ MOHO Live, the excellent My Albatross give a sterling performance despite an onstage nightmare involving a broken guitar neck! Many thanks to The Vanguards for helping out with a replacement.

Following that, The Vanguards themselves went down a storm, leaving many industry people reeling, probably in shock at the force of what they had witnessed. What an exhilarating performance!

A little later, and with the focus shifting to the Mint Lounge, The Vanguards played their second gig of the evening (again impressive in every way). Last (and most DEFINITELY not least) of the night were The Cordels. Playing a set with two new tracks added (check out their MySpace to hear them) the response from industry folks (“the best band I’ve seen during ITC”) was fantastic.

All in all, a massive success for the bands! Well done guys!


Ask Me PR In The City Day 1!

In The CityNeil McSweeney





Day 1 of In The City, and to kick things off it’s an early show for Sheffield’s Neil McSweeney. Hot on the heels of an excellent album launch party at The Luminaire in London, this  gig at Oldham St’s infamous Night & Day was another real triumph. With support from his backing band The Gents, Neil impressed everyone with a mixture of new tracks from the album ‘Shoreline’ and some crowd-pleasing favourites such as London Road and Postcards.

Really nice to see the conference opening with a personal favourite of mine. Looking forward to more from Ask Me artists at ITC over the next few days.

Hoping to see you there,
