The Music League

A few days ago a good friend of mine, Kate Hollowood posted on Twitter asking whether anyone knew any photographers who might be able to help shoot an event she was organising. I dropped Kate a note with some details of a group, ZoomIn photography, who'd helped me out in the past with Brixton Oxjam. I also said if she was really stuck I'd be able to offer my (rather) amateur services! It turned out Kate was really stuck!

The event Kate was involved in the organisation of is something called The Music League. The Music League provides a platform for unsigned bands of any genre to perform in front of audiences they may not ordinarily get a chance to play to. In a battle of the bands type format there are a series of events over the next 4-5 weeks at the end of which the overall winner of the league will have the opportunity to play at the 1234 Shoreditch Festival taking place in July.

To find out more about The Music League you should check out Kate's blog.

Last night was the first heat of round one and featured Will Roberts, Red Apples, Dan Shears and JSA. It's tough to call who'll go through. Will Roberts certainly brought the most fans but if it was down to me it'd be between Red Apples and Dan Shears. Anyway, here are a few (currently unedited) shots from the night.
