Silent Night @ The Good Ship, Kilburn - David Cronenberg's Wife, Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silence
For the cost of a mere 4 pounds, you can see 6 of the best and most interesting underground acts in London. Time Out Magazine recommend it as one of their top 10 gigs of the week and quite right too! It features the following:
David Cronenberg's Wife
Subversive, imaginative and compelling Fall and Jonathan Richman-influenced songs about sex, death and deformity.
Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences
Offbeat and engaging pop songs, somewhere between Nick Cave & Daniel Johnson. A compelling live act.
Catchy heartbreak folk-blues a bit like the Proclaimers covering Tom Waits and every bit as good as that sounds.
L'il Lost Lou
Punk-influenced country songs with witty, brutal lyrics.
Something in the Water
Folk duo something akin to murder ballads-era Nick Cave
East-end acoustic punk brilliance
Music starts at 8, finishes at 2 (last band finish around 11:30). Free biscuits if you turn up before 8.
