First gigs for the new Poppers crop

The Pop-Up Choir warming up outside Brixton East

Warm-ups!

Last night we had the most fantastic fun at Makerhood‘s Making Uncovered event at Brixton East. After a lovely, sunny day pootling round south London – Camberwell Food and Drink Festival, we bow to you and your £1 Rioja stall – it was such a treat to head into Brixton East; a stunning arts venue and studio that makes you breathe a sigh of relief the minute you walk through the door.

We did a six-song set of old favourites and our two new Spring numbers (Heartbeats by The Knife, and I Got The Sweetest Feeling by Jackie Wilson) and it was amazing. In fact, I can say so completely objectively, because I had a ridiculous cold so sat at the front and watched everyone going for it!

This gig was particularly important because it was the first time spring newbies got to do a proper set in front of a crowd – verdict: WIN. Also,  our MD, Dom, couldn’t make it, so Lisa and Harry led the choir instead. It went really well. There were many cocktails afterwards. Sadly, I don’t think it was a Popper who won the raffle…

A couple of weeks ago, it was the first gig full-stop, in the fantastically hedonistic environs of The Good Ship in Kilburn, where we sang The Chain at My Best Friend’s Girl’s Fleetwood Mac: Rumours night.

We had an amazing time! The crowd had an amazing time! Everyone woke up with hangovers – we loved it.

Videos to follow, but in the meantime, we’ll be busking on the South Bank on Tuesday night as a change of scene. See you there.
