Hangin', Secret Garden Party, Upcoming Shows

(Picture and videos courtesy of Paul Cockcroft)
Yes y'all,

So, we've had a fun few weeks as the sun has finally started to show it's face a little more and we've moved the music from the club to the field :)

In the music industry, there is always alot of hanging around.... hanging around for a soundcheck, hanging around before you go on stage, hanging around after the show, hanging around in the studio etc. Infact, most musicians/performers will tell you that they 'perform for free', but get paid for the 'travelling and hanging around' - it's much more tedious than you think. We've started documenting some of this 'hanging around' - one because we get bored, and two because there's always plenty of banter ;)


Yes, we are playing Secret Garden Part 2011, but first, let me tell you about a little 'secret' garden party we had yesterday....

For about 3 years Noah and Ruby have talked about having a gig in their garden....and yesterday they finally did it! It was an amazing gathering of creative-types from the area with music from The Space KuggiesBall-Zee, Ruby & Noah, Thabo and The Real Deal, and of course, Extra Curricular. It was also a way of pulling all these groups together and launching a collective called Under Wraps Music - more on this to come soon! Here's a pic of the intimate affair....

As I mentioned before, the lovely folks at Chai Wallahs have asked us to join their amazing roster for Secret Garden Party 2011 - we're playing the Chai Wallahs stage on Sunday 24th July at 6pm! 

They have also asked us to play Green Man Festival with them in August, so we're really pleased to be able to announce these two shows to you now! Make sure to check out their Facebook group and tell them how dope they are for inviting Extra Curricular to join them this year! Do it HERE

-------UPCOMING SHOWS--------

Just before I give you a complete run-down of our upcoming shows, check out Thabo's advice for the week - this guy knows the score, and his message is something we at EC live by....
