Indiepop! Twee! Pic 'n' Mixx's mix-CD special returns, with Pocketbooks + Cola Jet Set + Foxes! + The Cavalcade
Last year's was awesome. People in their STACKS made CDs, dropped them in the postbox on the way in and left with one made by someone else. Stairs To Korea's, Internet Forever's, Everett True's or Amelia Fletcher's if they were lucky.
And here's the update:
PIC 'N' MIXX IS BACK!!!
Following last October's sold-out indiepop spectacular, we're returning to the Buffalo Bar with an ace line-up and more mix CDs for a bunch of excited spectators.
TICKETS (£6)! http://www.wegottickets.com/event/75482
Make a mix CD, drop it into the box on the door, get one made by someone else on the way out. We've got some made by your favourite (as-yet-unannounced) indiepop celebs too...
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!
- COLA JET SET
Cola Jet Set are an endearing Elefant Records band all the way from Barcelona with sun-filled Spanish female voices buzzing with a love for bubblegum pop, mod and surf-pop.
Brighton's Foxes! (look at the grammatical excitement) parade a special brand of toy-town pop with intelligent lyrics and unusual Moogy twists and turns.
- THE CAVALCADE
The Cavalcade are a three piece indie pop band from the rainswept town of Preston making haunting indiepop with a hushed, Housemartins-style breeze.
Post-bands (and 'til late), DJs'll be spinning stuff like The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Heavenly, Los Campesinos!, Blueboy, The Smiths and The Pastels.
