Music Dealers Out N' About: Marla & The Special Ks @ The Bowery, LondonPosted on Tuesday, March 1, 2011
On the 21st February the Music Dealers London office were invited down to The Bowery (which used to be The Fly) for the single launch of Marla’s ‘Betty the Raver’. Marla was supported by The Special Ks, so it was a great opportunity for us to see two of our exciting UK artists playing live. Marla was as charming as ever, strutting her stuff in some amazing sparkly hotpants! The venue was packed full of adoring fans who were all singing along to every song. She did a great set including some of her most catchy songs, ’40 winks’ and ‘lipstick for the vampires’.
The Special Ks then piled onto the stage with what looked like enough equipment for a ten-piece band. They blew us all away with their massive sound and very catchy, electro pop songs. We particularly enjoyed the songs ‘BOA’ and ‘Dark Blue’ and found them stuck in out heads for days after. Despite the damaged eardrums, the gig was thoroughly enjoyable and we can’t wait to see them again soon.
Well that’s all for now from us in London. Please watch the video and check out Marla and The Special Ks, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
