Insert Favourite Band Here (And Now)
It’s probably because of the nature of what we do here, but the way that the gig scene functions has always seemed a touch inefficient.
Music Concierge: What’s not to Lykke
Swedish singer Lykke Li is being hailed as Scandinavia’s answer to Feist. She certainly has the correct credentials.
Music Concierge: It’s Good to be Green
Many soul singers are an important part of people’s lives, but few, apart from the likes of James Brown and Sam Cooke, are quite as revered as The Right Reverend himself.
Even with a Man Utd vs Chelsea match to delay the onset of the crowds, Yelle’s only London gig on her tour still managed to pack out the Proud.
Music Concierge: One To Watch: Surkin
Another week. Another cool French dance act that sounds like Daft Punk only wonkier! But stop that cynicism there. Twenty year old Surkin’s sound may tread a similar path to the Ed Bangers camp, but the truth is, it’s pretty irresistible.
Audiosushi: Stag and Dagger
If you like overload; being as concentrated as an A.D.D. headbanger channeling the complete works of William Blake on Modafinil, then get yeself down to Stag and Dagger, a new Shoreditch 15 venue orgy of complete aural mayhem, with a lineup that can only be described as Shock and Awe.
