Vasco my favourite Portuguese nutjob from Poke is putting on a night at Cafe OTO in Dalston. Which according to the Observer Food Monthly is the 4th coolest place to eat in Britain. And according to the Observer Food Monthly it’s the coolest place in Britain according to Italian Vogue. With that many ‘coolest according to’ accolades you need to go there at some point. Hell, even I need to go there at some point.
Anyway he’s bringing over 2 of his favourite guitarists from Portugal for one night only.

Maneul is undoubtedly the more challenging of the two artists and has a much freer sense of how to play a guitar. But it’s the kind of thing that someone from The Wire would say something like this about:

I love the fact that Vasco has dipped into his own pocket to put on a night of music that he loves. And he’s a nice guy so I’m getting behind it.
If you fancy going to see something different at the coolest place in Britain here’s the links you need:
