On Sunday 8th May, we are hosting and performing a night at Illuminate Festival – LEAO and friends – where we’ll be playing alongside some talented musician pals of ours.

We’re also playing a few songs at the festival launch party on May 2nd and as part of Illuminate’s LIGHTBOX night for charity, on May 22nd. We can’t wait.

We’ve been gigging across London consistently for a year and a half now, playing at venues including The Troubadour, Proud Camden, The Good Ship and O2 Academy Islington.

But it is such a joy to sometimes perform in intimate theatre spaces where you can really speak to your audience. Illuminate festival introduced us to this, when we played at their LIGHTBOX night last year.

We’ll be playing a mix of old and new material at Illuminate this year, celebrating the launch of our 2nd single JUST US (released 18.04.2016) and our soon to be released Villain EP.

Our debut single VILLAIN can currently be bought on iTunes and Spotify or streamed via our Soundcloud page – soundcloud.com/leaoband

The great Brecht trek

Hmm.. Sounds like a wistful plummet through archives and across seas. However, the reality is far more immediate – and somewhat thrilling (well, for the Theatrical Niche team and audiences in any case!) We get to take our dynamic and tongue-in-cheek version of what in fact is known as Brecht’s most pessimistic play (cor blimey! […]
