One of the UK’s most compelling live acts and of my personal faves, Deaf Havana are confirmed as the latest top draw artist to perform as part of Original Penguin’s ‘Plugged In’ sessions. These sessions are renowned for bringing the most electrifying acts from each genre to intimate and unusual spaces.

On November 7th Deaf Havana will take to the stage for what is sure to be one of the hottest tickets of the year with just 50 fans scrabbling to get up close and personal with the band.

This six-piece are a collective that exude passion and spirit and this gig will confirm their widely regarded status as one of the UK’s most incendiary rock acts.  Deaf Havana recently released their top 10 album ‘Old Souls’, a boundary pushing record that showcased their flourishing song writing and expanding horizons and they will perform tracks from the album at this very special show.

Deaf Havana were acclaimed as one of the stand out acts at the recent Reading and Leeds festivals and having had the biggest main stage opening crowd ever in 2012, they progressed up the bill to a rammed NME/Radio 1 tent this year. This will be a very rare chance to see the band in such close proximity.

The ‘Plugged In’ sessions is an established series that has seen musical trailblazers take to the stage in intimate and often secret locations to create an experience that harks back to the first days before they were signed. Performing to their hard-core fan base in venues they could sell out ten times over, these are sweaty, boisterous affairs where the lines between band and audience are blurred.  Recent artists have included Jake BuggFrictionMiles KaneBenga and Devlin.
Since the birth of Original Penguin in the 1950’s when Rock & Roll dominated youth culture, the brand has always had strong links with music. Original Penguin continue to grow and evolve alongside the cultural landscape, embracing all musical genres from indie and rock to urban and electronica, inspired by the way music and fashion continue to influence each other as new waves of fans discover the brand. .
The event with Deaf Havana is one of the final Original Penguin sessions of the year.  Fans can stay up to date with all these and more by heading to the Plugged In website.
