Golden Animals – www.myspace.com/goldenanimals
This is a must see, rare central London show from one of the finest live acts around. They are performing as part of their festival tour (Summer Sundae and Green Man).

The phenomenal new project from vocalist Allison Brice (The Eighteenth Day of May) and composer / producer / all around pop-svengali Andy Dragazis (Blue States). The Silver Abduction's music enjoys a slightly otherworldly 1950’s feel, but with an entirely modern expression. Lush arrangements perfectly compliment Allison’s mesmeric vocals, and the result is an entirely unique sound, rich and enchanting...
