THINGS are really cooking now at The Acoustic Couch – we’ve had a brilliant week including a private party where Gun Hill Riffs performed a stonkingly good set.

Then on Wednesday we held one of our regular Jammin’ On The Couch nights, a great open mic opportunity for people who want to experiment, play or just listen to some great music.

But it’s the next couple of weeks that are getting me really excited.

The first bit of news could do with a MASSIVE fanfare.

I’m delighted to tell you that The Acoustic Couch will be open daily from Monday, September 26.  This is fantastic news and the reality of our vision to bring to Berkshire a creative space that includes a cafe/bar, rehearsal rooms, mentoring and creative arts opportunities including video and photography.

It’s going to be brilliant and I hope you drop in and see what we can offer you.

But we’re not just about creating music, we’re about performances too.

What better way to end a day making than by enjoying some aural treats?

Tomorrow we’ve got the Pixiephonic 20th anniversary celebration I told you about last week.

Then, next weekend, we’ve got a great double header for you: first up on Friday, September 23 we welcome Hands Off Gretel for an amazing night – made even better by FREE ENTRY.  Yep, not a penny to get in.  You’d be mad to miss it.

If you’ve not heard of Hands Off before, well they’re a GRRL fronted alternative grunge rock music, with a hint of modern day post punk.

They’re just about to launch their new album too – hopefully copies will be on sale on the night.

Then, on Saturday, September 24 we’ve got not one but two bands going to Couch.

The Oil City Kings, a Bracknell-based band, promise a night of uptempo R’n’B in the classic seventies type of Dr Feelgood.

They’ll be supported by Streetfight Silence, another quartet of local rockers who want you to have a fantastic evening of music.

Again, this is a brilliant free entry night – so you’ve got no excuse for not coming down to support us as we prepare to launch.

You will find us at Market Place in Bracknell.  We’re just a couple of minutes walk from the train station and the bus station so we’re really easy to get to…and we’re a friendly bunch too!
