APR 2ND 2013 - PICTUREDROME GIG
We are very pleased to announce our next gig in Northampton at The Picturedrome, on the 27th of April. Its been a while since we've played for you here, but we are hoping you'll all join us to make it as much fun as previous gigs. Plus, this will be one of the last gigs we do in Northampton for a while.
Tickets will be £5 in advance. There will be no pay on entry available at all. The reason being, we expect you to buy enough tickets to sell out the venue ;)...and also it keeps things simple for us and means there's no confusion on the door.
For the time being, please contact Steve Mowbray to reserve your ticket. Please contact him on steve @ cousinavimusic.co.uk or 07545 758065 to arrange payment. We can't wait to see you there!
Further details can be found on the Facebook event page. [Facebook Event Page]

As new material is constantly being generated at Avi HQ, we've decided to rethink the way we deliver our music to you. We recently recorded and released a 3 track EP called 'The Orange One', so we
could share some of our new material. As a result of the enjoyment we had in making it and the fantastic response from you guys, we plan to regularly release Mini Albums rather than full albums, once every 12-to-18 months.
Each release will consist of 3 or 4 brand new songs, ensuring that you never have to wait too long to hear the latest that Cousin Avi has to offer. When you see a new song performed live you could have it to take home in a matter of weeks. As with all Avi recordings, new releases will be available to buy from iTunes.
