Bandstand Busking with The Hours

The Bandstand

What could be finer than a free music concert on a crisp Sunday afternoon?  Bandstand Busking is a couple of guys who believe in using bandstands for what they were made for – bands. Playing instruments. With people watching. Former performers include the Black Lips, Gregory and the Hawk and The Leisure Society.

But in this case, The Hours were unplugged.

The Hours

Watching a band in this way felt almost too intimate. The music is all acoustic (bandstands are lacking in plugs) – not even a microphone –  so there are no heavy riffs disguising dodgy harmonies. Raw talent is very much on display. It’s a refreshing way to watch a band and even better as it’s free!
