Indie/electro band, Periscope View takes the stage at King’s Cross in support of Youth Music’s Give a Gig campaign. Don’t miss this free concert! The Panarmonion bar will be open from 4pm with Periscope View’s performance starting at 7pm.
The group has recently self-released their debut EP “The Grays Grown EP” recorded at OneCat Studios, produced and mastered by DJ Sonic. The music has drawn comparisons to artists such as Bombay Bicycle Club, Sneaker Pimps, London Grammar, The XX and Radiohead.

About Give a Gig
Every year, Youth Music supports more than 400 local community organisations to provide over 90,000 young people with the opportunity to make music, helping them to overcome the challenges they face in their lives. The organisation works with children experiencing very difficult circumstances including poverty, depression, disability, isolation and bereavement. The projects improve the wellbeing of the young people involved, encourage them to develop their creative and social skills and make positive contributions to their community.
Youth Music’s vision is that, one day, life-changing music-making will be available to all children and young people. The organisation is doing its very best to make that vision a reality.
In June 2014, Youth Music launched the fundraising campaign Give a Gig. Through this campaign, musicians, promoters, venue owners and music fans around the country have hosted and attended live music events in support of Youth Music’s work. Music communities nationwide have come together to fundraise, from a Pantera tribute in North London to a New Zealand indie band touring the UK. Celebrity ambassadors including soul singer Laura Mvula are supporting the cause.
