The Adelphi Birthday Celebrations with Rozi Plain (full band) and support.
Intoxicating sad and beautiful pop… full of heartwrenching harmonies…  unexpected instrumental flourishes that… rise out with melodies that draw you in.

Rozi Plain has been making music since her brother gave her a guitar when she was 16. Raised in Winchester, she spent a few years studying art and painting boats in Bristol, where she met long-term collaborators Kate Stables and Rachael Dadd, and where she made her first two albums. She has recently moved to London, and is set to release her third LP, Friend, in 2015.Rozi’s most recent offering, Joined Sometimes Unjoined, is made up of ten tracks of intoxicatingly sad and beautiful pop… full of heartwrenching harmonies and… unexpected instrumental flourishes that… rise out with melodies that draw you in. The sparseness of the half-mumbled lyrics means that there is always something hidden, like the discarded scraps of a torn up poem. The excruciatingly beautiful ‘Take It’ is somehow simultaneously brimming with sadness and optimism.Her new single, ‘Jogalong’ feels like chasing birds barefoot in a dewy field, and in a stroke of onomatopoeic song-naming genius, could also be the soundtrack to Follow That Bus.

Rozi’s taken her joyous live show on the road around the Europe, the UK and the USA, and toured with an assortment of folk-mongers, from luminary, Devendra Banhart, to Lost Map’s very own starlet, The Pictish Trail.



Sarah Johns Music Party is from the North of England and now lives in London. Her stripped back, organic, drum, guitar and vocals, give her work an immediate and honest feel that is at once comforting and yet unnerving. Her music recalls the purity of Lykki Li, the rawness of Scout Niblett and the musicality of Tune-Yards.
Inspirations: Stop Making Sense (The Talking Heads live video), 808 drum machines, Hermann Hesse, Samba, cheerleaders, ceremonies, games with rules, the bit where it all comes together in jazz and the bit before and after, Oh Lord Won’t You Buy Me a Mercedes Benz, Salt-N-Pepa, Laurie Anderson.

Neil Thomas‘ songs blend beautiful folk inspired melodic guitar with atmospheric vocals, loop pedals and warm distorted leads. His music draws inspiration from Nick Drake, Jackson C Frank, The Beatles, Beck and Radiohead amongst many others.

Adelphi favourite Rozi will play The Adelphi on Thursday 1st October.

Doors 8.00pm. Pay on the door. £8 otd / £6 members
