Kassidy at Roadhouse, Manchester 8/10/10 – Win tickets

leave a comment »

Glasgow indie-folk quartet Kassidy head out on their debut headline tour this October, taking in venues as far-reaching as Stornoway and London.

The band’s unique sound is created with just four acoustic guitars and if their recent festival performances at Latitude, Reading and T In The Park are anything to go by, this band are set for big things in the coming months. Their second EP, ‘The Rubbergum EP Volume 2’, is out now and includes the beautiful and haunting new track ‘Take Another Ride.’ Their debut album is set for release next year.

I think that fans of Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes and Band of Horses will really like this band’s sound, which is a million miles away from Glasgow and much closer to the dusty and scorched landscape of deepest Arizona; as depicted in the video, but in reality shot in Spain! Critics have bestowed the following comments on Kassidy: 

“They rock, but with acoustic guitars, producing a harmony-filled, rootsy swagger that frames them as the British Kings Of Leon.” – Q

“The authentic sound of the Wild West of Scotland…we’re smitten.” – The Word

“Their latest album is full of sweeping, wall-of-sound guitar music that moves with ease between foot-stomping, festival-friendly fare and tender acoustic harmonies.” – Monocle


I have a pair of tickets to see the band at Roadhouse, Manchester on Friday 8th October, 7pm with support to be announced shortly. Thanks to Kat at Universal Music for these.

To enter the competition, just send me an e-mail at with your name and address details by Friday 24th September 2010. I will pick a winner out of the makeshift hat and get your tickets to you asap.
