Jeff Rowe (USA) / Mark McCabe / The Barents Sea / THT – Next Week!
Make-That-A-Take presents a last-minute evening of acoustic goodness with…
JEFF ROWE (USA)
Heartfelt Americana-influenced acoustic folk punk singer/songwriter from Gloucester, Massachusetts. Signed to Gunner Records, Jeff shares a European label with the likes of The Gaslight Anthem, The Riot Before and World/Inferno Friendship Society and plays passionate acoustic punk not a million miles away from the likes of Chuck Ragan, Tim Barry, Austin Lucas and Smoke Or Fire’s Joe McMahon (who appeared on Jeff’s “Barstool Conversations” record). This is Jeff’s first time in Scotland and we’re happy to be able to help him out with a last-minute show after a bunch of his UK dates fell through. This should be another rare ol’ treat!
Hard-working and hard-touring singer/songwriter from Aberdeen. Mark has taken his cynical yet witty songs all over Europe and the US in the last few years and has seen him shares stages with the likes of The Flatliners, Frank Turner, Lemuria, The Arteries and many, many more. He’ll be back in the States touring down the east coast to The Fest 11 in Gainesville later this year. We’ve been wanting to put Mark on for a while, so we’re pleased to finally be able to do so.
THE BARENTS SEA
Perth-based singer/songwriter Grant George is the founder member of The Barents Sea and has seen his baby evolve from solo acoustic project to full-blown rock’n’roll band and back again over the past few years. The one thing that has remained constant is Grant’s ability to weave tales of desperation and despair into huge choruses and infectious melodies. Check out the “Greetings From The Devil’s Playground” EP that was released last week.
TRAGICAL HISTORY TOUR
First solo Dundee show for quite a while (by our standards anyway) from the UNIFORMS front roaster playing tooth-rattling fast bleak acoustic punk and equally miserable introspective quiet finger-picked heartbreakers. Has played all over the place with the likes of Ghost Mice, Paul Baribeau, Mike Park, Billy Liar and many more, plus the odd cowpunk wedding or two. There’s also talk of a new EP soon.
