7.30pm-2am, £8/£7 in advance
Hot on the heels of their stunning show at Jamm, Butcher Boy return to London to head this dream bill, featuring the three bands releasing albums on the HDIF label this year. They'll be playing songs from their second album, "React Or Die", including their recent single. "Carve A Pattern", which was Record Of The Week on the Radcliffe and Maconie show on Radio 2. For those new to the band, imagine swoonsome Tindersticks, Love, and Felt-ish symphonic pop.
Cats On Fire
At long last, Finland's Cats On Fire return to the UK. If you haven't heard the foursome yet, you're in for a treat - their new album, "Our Temperance Movement" sees jangling indie pop tussling with rip-roaring rock’n’roll, ornate REM-esque melodies squaring up to exuberant indie dancefloor smashes. Their new single, "Tears In Your Cup", which has already been aired on BBC6 Music and Xfm, comes out the week of this show.
Pocketbooks are a pop band from London, combining melodic boy/girl harmonies, spiralling guitars and delicate piano lines. Expect a sprinkling of dazzling 60s soul alongside some sparkling indiepop charm! Their debut album, "Flight Paths", comes out on HDIF in June.
Butcher Boy will finish at 11pm, after which there'll be a HDIF club night until 2am
