This Saturday, we're back at The Phoenix in Cavendish Square, and we're having a Jens Lekman special. Jens was one of our highlights of this year's End Of The Road festival, and so we thought we'd celebrate by having a night playing his best songs, from "Black Cab" and "You Are The Light" to "Friday Night At The Drive-In Bingo" and "An Argument With Myself" and beyond. We'll also be playing songs he's taken inspiration from, sampled and covered - so expect to hear The Shangri-Las, Chairmen Of The Board, Television Personalities, The Left Banke and loads more.
I emailed Jens just to let him know that we were holding a night in his honour and he sent back a lovely reply. I'm sure he won't mind me repeating it here:
That's amazing, I'm very touched.
Now I know how it feels to be loved
Send the people my love.
Our guest DJs for the night are Richard and Laura of This Many Boyfriends.
