Hi, this next Gig is going to be really amazing!
I saw Christy and Emily (who are on the same label as GangGangDance)play the other day and they are really wonderful live! Emily has this ancient magical Wurlitizer which made the best buzzy soupy sound I have ever heard and Christy plays an old Gibson with crazy FX and they finish each others lyrics off like a musical Gilbert and George. You really should catch them before they fly home to New York!
Manchester's Lonelady are just finishing off their tour with rocking emo types 'Nine Black Alps' and are primed to be even more on fire than usual!
Plus! Kattparaden is playing her London Debut and is bound to break a few hearts with her delicate beautiful songs.
Plus Former Utopia are playing their debut show with the new super drummer/vocalist formation, plus new songs.
