Two Wounded Birds (9pm)
A band with a fervent appreciation of melody and a deep reverence for ‘the song’, Two Wounded Birds have steeped themselves in the defining sounds of the last 60 years. Their new Moshi Moshi single ‘Together Forever’ will be released the week of the gig. This is the sound of well-crafted, timeless pop played by a group of unwavering, romantic, rock and roll obsessives….and they’re from Margate. Awesome! http://twowoundedbirds.com
Young Legionnaire (10pm)
When a band like Young Legionnaire comes along, it’s a reminder that the UK is the originator of pounding riffs, scorching guitars and sensory-grabbing rhythms. Formed by Paul Mullen formerly of yourcodenameis:milo and Gordon Moakes of Bloc Party, the band recently signed to Wichita Recordings to release their debut album, Crisis Works. www.younglegionnaire.com
Good Girls Gone Bad DJs (10:45pm)
