Rosie and The Goldbug live at The Cove Cafe Bar in Hope Cove Devon

Meet Rosie and The Goldbug

CORNISH purveyors of hectic electronica Rosie & The Goldbug unleash a guerrilla gig at The Cove Cafe Bar on Friday, August 21.

Drawing on the vintage eccentricities of Alison Goldfrapp and Kate Bush, the trio make a surprise stop in Hope Cove on the comeback trail.

The brainchild of lead singer and keyboard player Rosie Vanier and named after an Edgar Allen Poe story, RATG first came to the nation’s attention whilst still in their teens.

Having toured Europe with Cyndi Lauper, a critically-acclaimed self-titled debut won over the music press in 2008 – tipping the band for big things.

Management disputes derailed the project but a new record deal, UK tour and a brand new single ‘HEY YOU’ have seen Rosie & The Goldbug back in the mind and ready to win your heart.

Expect insanely catch pop hook and vibrant, glitzy electro pop in an intimate setting just off the beach.

Live from 9pm-ish, admission is free.

Country in Hope Cove

SET to make a global impact according to The Guardian, Devon singer-songwriter Alex Hart makes her debut at The Cove Cafe Bar in July.

Influenced by the likes of KT Tunstall and Doris Day, the 24-year-old has already drawn huge attentions for a unique sound she brands as ‘West Country Country’.

With glowing tributes in the press and deals with Right Track Digital via Universal in the UK and OK!Good Records in the US, it all suggests this lady is about to go places.

Working with talented DJ team, Electronic Youth, their cover of “I Wish I Didn’t Miss You” originally by Angie Stone went to no. 2 in the Music Week Club Charts and was played and supported by Pete Tong on Radio 1.

Catchy guitar hooks, uplifting harmonies with high quality vocals in a range of different styles – Alex has the potential to conquer the contemporary acoustic circuit.

Live from 9pm-ish, admission is free.

Music Meal Deals will once again be in operation – booking is advised.
