Coming up at The Social : Sasha Adamczewski Residency.

Sasha Adamczewski is 23 man from South East London with a powerful voice. From a young age he has played, written and performed his own material. Sasha’s influences have grown from figures such as John Martyn and Tom Waits, to a darker and blues driven sound with inspiration from artists such as Howling Wolf, Dr Feelgood and Screamin Jay Hawkins.

We’re delighted and honoured to have Sasha and his band join us for a four date residency this summer . . starting on August 7th – support artists below

Tickets for all shows on sale now – including limited £15 tickets for 4 four dates!

Tin Foil Astronaut (7th August)

Canterbury based Psych Pop outfit, whom combine Huge glacial pop with catchy hooks to create a sound that rivals a full string band being beamed in from outer space. Doo wop inspired melodies and ambitious songcraft that is both classic and modern.

The Honkies (21st August)

Premium synth infused country honky-tonk from South London.

Bad Parents (4th Sept)

Bad Parents are a two-piece from South London working independently. Inspired by collaboration, improvisation and falling in love with music again! We recorded our EP in January with Margo Broom at Hermitage Works Studios in London. Some of our talented and good friends came down and got involved to make it special!

Lan Dyons & The Wet Nurse (18th Sept)

Over the past five years Lan Dyons (aka Dan Lyons) had perhaps been best known as the drummer for bands such as Fat White Family, Misty Miller and Phobophobes, but his real job is a songwriter. Since a teen in several Kent bands in the late-noughties he’s been busy writing, and the The Wet Nurse project has been tried and tested at various opening slots and open mics across London. Now with an album recorded, and a live band featuring some of the best musicians from the South London scene, Lan Dyons & The Wet Nurse is officially up and running
