On 6th October, Polish supernova Brodka will play the O2 Forum Kentish Town with cult singer-songwriter Beth Orton. The event’s promoters, Eat Your Own Ears, are offering Culture.pl readers the chance to win a pair of tickets.
Monika Brodka started her career by winning the Polish TV competition Idol. Known for her unique brand of 'folk power with punk energy', she's now one of the most acclaimed young Polish recording artists, brandishing success on all fronts - gold records, critical praise and industry awards. Her third album Granda scored her eight nominations, and three wins, at the 2011 Fryderyk Awards, Poland's answer to the Grammy's. In 2012, Brodka was nominated for MTV European Music Awards. Her fashion sense too has made her a style icon featured in all the major magazines. The key to her success is her fresh, experimental approach that pushes the envelope on commercial pop without alienating the masses.
Beth Orton has been one of the most unique and beguiling voices in music for the past two decades. Her debut LP Trailer Park pioneered a synthesis of electronic and acoustic songs to huge acclaim, while follow up Central Reservation brought international success and the Brit Award for best British female. Her 2012 album Sugaring Season was described by Pitchfork as ‘ten songs of sweet resilience delivered by a voice of seemingly effortless expression’.
The O2 Forum Kentish Town is a major live entertainment venue in London and one of the UK’s best-preserved art-deco cinematic theatres. In recent years, the venue has seen some legendary performers take the stage including Jack White, Rihanna, Bobby Womack, Justin Timberlake, Scooter, KISS and Chas & Dave.
