Masters of Budvar present an Evening of Acoustic Loveliness





Superstar DJ Liam Dullaghan


Kate Stables and Jesse D. Vernon are This Is The Kit, an acoustic duo based in Paris.

Kate writes the simple, hypnotic songs and Jesse is on hand to decorate them with anything from bongo drums to violin. Together they make a sort of charmed surrealist modern folk, as demonstrated on their new album "Krulle Bol" (Microbe Records), produced by PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish. Tonight at Masters of Budvar is the first date of their UK tour to promote the new LP.

Kate and Jesse last performed at Masters of Budvar in February 2005. 40 shows on, Kate still holds the record for the best pair of shoes ever worn at the club.

"Kate Stables debuted her This Is The Kit incarnation back in 2002, but it's since moving to Paris that her star has really begun to rise. Rob da Bank sessioned her on Radio 1 and released a single on his Sunday Best label, while low-key busking sessions have been interspersed by gigs with The National, Jeffrey Lewis and Jose Gonzales.

Now she's UK-bound once again, armed with vinyl copies of 'Krulle Bol', the John

Parish-produced album just released by French imprint, Microbe. Paris' temporary

loss is our all-too-brief gain." - Venue Magazine, Bristol

The looks of Buddy Holly, the voice of John Lennon, the charm of Jonathan Richman and the attitude of some extremely strange but highly intelligent primate recently discovered deep in the Amazonian jungle to the astonishment of a generation: Jesse D. Vernon (also known around these parts as Morningstar) is a multi-talented musician and writer who will take on anything from gospel to psychedelia and make it ring like a bell. Currently his interests lie in Afrobeat, so let's see how he translates that into his solo acoustic performance!

Highly recommended.

Northampton's 21st Century Troubadour has been making some friends in high places on his recent inroads into London and now he plays Davy Graham's old guitar. Joe's playing is going from strength to strength at the moment and it's getting him noticed. Come see for yourself.

The songwriter's songwriter gingerly opens up his crate of inspirational records and plays lots of very sad songs very quietly.

Admission is, as always, free.

There are pretty lights, friendly people and good vibrations radiating indiscriminately around the Labour Club. There are good facilities for smokers and now there is Budvar on draught. The music starts at around nine o'clock and the bar is open until midnight. You should most probably come down and have a really good time.
