Stuff about Franco
My Friend John B joins me for a double header – here in this intimate warm and welcoming venue. Franco and the Dreadnought announces himself on the scene with his powerhouse voice and agile fingers. This young lad has the goods and the capability of packing arenas full of people waving their lighters in the air and singing along with every fibre of their being. He and his trusty sidekick, the Dreadnought, are bound to move the masses into musical bliss. It is awe inspiring to hear an acoustic song such as “BulletProof” convey the sweet, melt your heart sentiment of Damien Rice while creating the same emotive impact as the arena rock of Oasis. His singing and playing exude confidence and while making no attempt at covering up his Mancunion inflections, his delivery is all the more real and raw.
Time: 9:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages/Licensed. Address: 131 Christopher Street.
