Chalkpit Records to Host First Live Event

All-new Island label Chalkpit Records are hosting their first live music event, showcasing the very best new indie artists from the Isle of Wight and South Coast. The event will be held at The Blacksheep Bar, Ryde on Friday 13th May 2016 at 7:30pm.

Headlining the bill are XOCKHA, who have previously played on the Main Stage at Bestival. This will be their first headline show since 30th January 2016 where they brought the roof down at The Quay Arts Centre, Newport.

XOCHKA will be supported by two new bands working under the Chalkpit Records label- nakamarra and ECSESS. This will be the first exclusive live performance by both bands, so expect some new, exciting sounds. Debut singles will be exclusively released in physical format for one night only, so don’t miss out!

Music on the night starts at 8pm with an opening set from teenage trio FURTHERMORE, featuring Rocket Fuel Magazine’s David McGregor on lead vocals.

Chalkpit Records was founded by Silas Gregory, Commercial Music Degree student at the Platform One College of Music, frustrated by the lack of guidance and support for young musicians looking to make it in the cut throat music industry. Chalkpit Records aims to offer band management, marketing & promotion, PR, distribution, event & tour management, merchandise solutions and much more.

ENTRY TO THIS EVENT IS £4.00 // £3.00 WITH VALID STUDENT CARD (THIS EVENT IS 16+, PLEASE BRING ID)
