ROCK

BEMY AT THE LATEST MUSIC BAR: 1930

BEMY are unusual for a number of reasons: firstly they are brothers, secondly, although originally from Bordeaux, they moved to England and then to Poland, winning acclaim along the way. To hear their sound, click here. They are joined tonight by ambient funk rockers Luna Blue, Indie Brit Rock band Dan Cox and the Blackbirds and country pop singer Meg Lawrenson.

There will be lots of mince pies and mulled wine to enjoy, too. For venue details, click here.
