For the second time this fine, hot, dusty month of May, JMCT, Music Scene and Asylum together present a musical event of world-class quality.

Joe Driscoll is the man described by Speech of Arrested Development as “the true essence of hip hop music”. He is a guitar playing, beatbox-looping, consciousness-sharing one-man revolution of peaceful protest in song. Joe’s website joedriscoll.net is a fine place to start for those who require more of an introduction; it is overflowing with critical praise, accolades from superstar peers, video clips of performances and TV appearances, and a whole lot more. The collected lyrics are well worth investigating – here is a mind questing, testing, and defiantly not resting as it weaves together tales of personal growth and universal experience.

Joe Driscoll, maverick manipulator of live loops, plainly loves connecting with his audience and making friends all around the world. He is also commendably not afraid to speak out with political observations like his recently published blog in which he explores with maturity and wisdom the paradoxical issue of the war that President Obama has chosen to continue to wage in the name of peace: The Roots Of Violence

A performance by Joe Driscoll in an intimate back street club like the Live Lounge is a rare treat that is, frankly, unmissable so don’t miss it. Supporting acts are Jamie-Lee Fallaize from Guernsey and DJs Carlo and Livingstone. Tickets are available from Music Scene and White Label Records. A Facebook event has been set up here: JOE DRISCOLL (LIVE!)

The brilliant poster art for this and last week’s campaign was designed by Mark Evans. Go to his website markhevans.co.uk and if you want your business or brand to be touched by genius, contact him.
