We are delighted to announce that this Friday's festive frolics are to be enhanced by the considerable talents of the one and only Sean Mahoney!
A spoken word artist and comedian hailing all the way from north London, Sean Mahoney is an associate poet to the roundhouse with the Rubix collective and in the space of two years feels like he's performed in the upstairs of cellar or basement every pub in london has had a comedy or poetry night. He's writing his third biography for a gig today and feels funny talking about himself in third person but is incredibly happy to be doing it for bands and books. The night and idea excites him, his favourite performers have performed there, he's been on the blog a few times and is super happy he's been asked. Ready to go BRO!
We asked Sean for his favourite music so we can evaluate his taste in bands and judge him accordingly. Sean you have not let us down!
