Tada Tátà + Cosy Den = the UK tour is now all booked up! :D

Post by Mattias » Wed Jan 27, 2010 3:55 pm

Hello everyone!

Tada Tátà, who have put out an EP on Cosy Recordings, would very dearly like to come and play in the UK. Tanya has taken time off her uni between the 19th and the 30th of April and the band will be available for shows around that time.
My plan is to come along, help out with practical stuff, and also DJ at your nights if you'd like me to!
If you're not familiar with Tada Tátà YET, it's Tanya Andersson and her friends making fantastic little pop songs with quite dark lyrics to balance all the toy instruments, cake recipes and general sweetness up a bit. Tada Tátà have been abroad a bit but never in the UK - about time, we think!

Her songs can be enjoyed here: http://www.myspace.com/tadatata or here: http://www.lastfm.se/music/tada+t%C3%A1t%C3%A0
A couple of live videos: Hit the wall @ Cosy Den 5 Years, Sticky dumb gum @ an apartment in Paris, The brigade @ EP release party

It would be fantastic to come and play in YOUR town - and even if we can't do that for some weird reason, any suggestions are very welcome!

The band can be either 2 or 4 people, so the travel company will be either 3 or 5, depending on... ah, you know.

Feel more than welcome to contact me at thirdfloorfireescapeview@gmail.com! Thanks for your attention, hope to hear from you soon!

All the best,

Mattias

I'm definitely keen to try to sort you something out in Hull. Probably a mid-week gig, if that's okay... (and hey, they can't all be weekends).

Of course, that would be fantastic, mate! I'm definitely hoping to spend a Monday in Derby, me!

It would be great it you come to play in Madrid (Spain).
I like your music. ;-D

Spain would be fantastic for them! And they've actually been on their way to Madrid for quite a while now.
But something was the matter with the night they were supposed to play. A sponsor pulled out I think. Ah well.

Anyway, it's all coming together a bit now!

Here's what it looks like so far:

Fri 16: Tada Tátà fly to London (evening)
Sat 17: Spiral Scratch, LONDON w TBA bliss!
Sun 18: (day off?)
Mon 19: Apples for Discos, DERBY*
Tue 20: DIY Hi-5, HULL w Rocky Nest!
Wed 21: (Nottingham?/Sheffield?/Stoke? Leeds? Anyone?)
Thu 22: ?, NOTTINGHAM?
Fri 23: Popklubb, NEWCASTLE?
Sat 24: ?, EDINBURGH?
Sun 25: Stereotone Sunday, GLASGOW*
Mon 26: We're flying back to Stockholm


* = will definitely happen, is probably be confirmed this week, the day is just 99% sure though

Wednesday (21th), Thursday (22nd) and Friday (23rd) is the sketchy part so far. And on Sunday the 18th, they're definitely available! So anywhere remotely good geographically would be fantastic.
I'm on another tour myself during the first weekend but will go straight to Derby from Copenhagen on the Monday.
Anyone who's interested is more than welcome to get in touch and we'll do our best to work something out, with the other people interested also in mind!
We don't expect anything fancy although we don't mind fancy either.

Hope I'm not being silly now that I don't keep secrets, I haven't been in charge of anything like this before (although I've set up nearly 250 gigs). But I'm thinking people who read here will probably be quite friendly, and that it may help anyone who'd be interested in putting us on to have a good overview of stuff.

I'm joining the live line-up by the way! To some extent. It better be simple stuff. :)

Thanks a lot for your interest. I'll keep you posted!

Re: Tada Tátà + Cosy Den (Sweden) - UK tour in April!

Post by Mattias » Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:58 pm

Oh, and this is what we *really* need for each gig:

- Telecaster guitar + amp
- synthesizer (does definitely not have to be a large one)
- glockenspiel
- ukulele
- somewhere to plug their backtracks into the PA
- a cd deck not too sensitive with cdr records, if you'd like Cosy Den to provide a DJ set

And:

- a minimum of £50 for the gig (more would be fantastic)
- travel from where we last played (those £1 Megatrain/bus tickets are absolutely fine but we need you to buy them)
- a good place to sell records (Tada Tátà will have a new single out in time for the tour!)
- somewhere to sleep (nothing fancy needed and we'll do the dishes if you feed us once in a while)

Ta!

I'm pleased that we now have gigs in Derby, Hull and Glasgow confirmed! It's all now looking like this:

Fri 16: Flying to London

Sat 17: Spiral Scratch, LONDON
Sun 18: TBA (day off, perpaps)
Mon 19: Apples for Discos, DERBY
Tue 20: DIY Hi-5, HULL
Wed 21: TBA (Sheffield?/York? Leeds? Stoke?)
Thu 22: TBA (Nottingham?)
Fri 23: TBA (Sheffield?/York? Leeds? Stoke?)
Sat 24: ?, EDINBURGH?
Sun 25: Stereotone Sunday, GLASGOW

Mon 26: Flying back to Stockholm

Any offers for the TBA days are still most welcome! We don't mind a bit of travelling about as long as we have time to get to our confirmed gigs, and you can cover the travel expenses. If we can't sort out gigs where we are guaranteed £50 for any of the days we would love to play in your flat, or at your favourite breakfast place in your suburb. Thanks!

Hullo!

We would still very much be interested in suggestions on these four dates:

Sun 18, Wed 21, Thu 22

I know that some kind people are already having a look in their cities concerning this, but you never quite know how these things will go!

Do get in touch with me if you would like to sort something out, or if you know someone who might be interested. You can reach me on here, obviously, or at thirdfloorfireescapeview@gmail.com
If it's urgent, please text me: +46702068154

Thanks a lot for your help!

All the best from snowed in outskirts of Stockholm.

You're welcome to join us. Actually, you should DJ at one of these gigs. At least. Would be great fun with a battle, huh?

Oh, and... Sheffield, you can now actually become the Sex City you've always wanted to be.
