Preview: BIGKids at The Joiners (16/10/2012)


BIGKids are a pop duo from Camden. Ben Hudson McIldowie (aka, Mr Hudson) and Rosie Bones (daughter of Bill Oddie) play such infectious duets it’s hard not to sing-a-long, no doubt these songs will be stuck in your head for days. They have just released their debut album Never Grow Up and are touring the UK. They will be playing at The Joiners in Southampton on Tuesday 16th October and if you’re not busy (going to Hot Chip, or anything else) head down and have a night of great pop music.

BIGKids formed out of Mr Hudson breaking his leg whilst at a festival in America a few years ago. He came home to Camden to recover and wanted to rediscover the London music scene. During recovery him and Rosie decided to mess around with a few tracks and see where things go and I can see this being the start of something great for the future. It’s fun, simple electro pop music.

Tickets are only £6! It’d be a crime to miss out. You can find tickets here.
