This week brings us the...
LAST EVER LUCKSMITHS SHOWS IN THE UK
The Lucksmiths play their last ever UK shows next week. This is not a hoax. They really are splitting up. You will never see them play again. Come to these shows.
The first is at the lovely Luminaire on Tuesday 7th with a stellar supporting cast handpicked by the Lucksmiths themselves: Gary Olson, playing a set of Ladybug Transistor songs with some familar faces (could it be those Lucksmiths chaps?) as his backing band; Nottingham's finest progfolkTinderstickstronica pop outfit The Chemistry Experiment; and the brilliant Still Corners featuring Leon J Dufficy of The Zebras and Hush Arbors.

And then, the night after, The Lucksmiths last ever London show at The Scala, with support from genius award-winning comedian Daniel Kitson and Fortuna POP!'s latest signings Allo Darlin'. Ian from How Does It Feel To Be Loved? will be DJing between bands and afterwards we'll be having a little party down the road at The Lexington, with Ian and Marianthi from Spiral Scratch playing some records. You're all invited, of course.

It's going to be an amazing few days! If a bit sad.
