19th August 2010 – AKIRA @ The Hoxton Pony

Akira in association with The Hoxton Live Sessions, 1 of 1000 and sponsored by Corona, bringing you the best music showcase night at a very high brow venue in the trendiest part of town, and it’s FREE!


Previously known as ‘Heart on Fire’ who are regulars on the London gig circuit, this is the launch night for Escapists. They have recently been in the studio and have a whole host of new songs to showcase. This amazingly anthemic band is a must see, having played recently at the very trendy Standon Calling Festival.


Smoke Feathers mix folk, indie and soul and are legends on the London scene with an intoxicating fusion of simple yet hypnotic music. One of the most innovative and eclectic acts around.


Shura drapes her music with a delicate voice reminiscent of Trip Hop’s most refined moments. With cryptic lyrics, intense emotion and a smoky, effortless voice, Shura is a must see, one of the most interesting live sets in the London scene. A wonderfully atmospheric jazzy style enhanced by an earthy voice and, of course, her looping pedal.

With AKIRA HOUSE DJs playing late into the night.
