Prince and 3rd Eye Girl announced their arrival in London in spectacular style last night, Tuesday 4th February.
After flying in straight from their all night launch party for debut single Plectrumelectrum in NYC on Sunday evening the band began their stint in London with an intimate press conference in Lianne LaHavas’s east London living room.
Playing acoustically Prince & 3rd Eye Girl previewed two tracks from the forthcoming Plectrumelectrum album. A fittingly intimate and special location, this was the first in the series of surprise ‘Hit and Run’ shows, with many more exciting events to follow through February.
Following the press conference the band moved to Camden’s historic Electric Ballroom where they played a 60 minute spontaneous jam session to a few hundred lucky fans who were tipped off about the session just an hour beforehand via Twitter. No one was left unsatisfied as the band ripped through several tracks from Plectrumelectrum, as well as surprises that included a phenomenally funky version of Wild Cherry’s ‘Play That Funky Music’.
