London, wake up: DiS is putting on a pair of shows for you - yes, you! - over the next two nights. You think we book these things just so we can go out and get drunk? Well stop thinking that - it's only partially true...
Tonight, at The Luminaire in Kilburn, we've got something very special for you: Emmy The Great, plus mates, and maybe even a special guest. Yeah, maybe. It might be called the Apocalypso Acoustic Night. Yeah, probably. Or just Emmy And Freinds. You decide.
The first fifty attendees through the door this evening will get themself a rather nifty DiS Records sampler featuring tracks by Emmy herself, Bat For Lashes, Adam Gnade, Metric, Redjetson, Jeniferever, Martha Wainwright, Kaiser Chiefs, and more. Which is pretty nice, likes.
There are a number of tickets for tonight's sold-out-in-advance event on the door, so get there early oh ticketless types. By early we mean seven. Good, good. Line-up, it's as follows...
Annie Frank Sinatra (on at 7.30)
Duncan J. Brown
(Interval at 9.15)
Annie Frank Sinatra (on at 9.30)
Noah and the Whale
Emmy The Great
(Another interval! Buy a drink!)
The Mules (11.00pm 'til midnight)
THEN, almost 24 hours after the opening of tonight's show, we've lined up a smashing Halloween show for the good people of London, or more particularly the good people squeezed into the insides of Hammersmith Palais. check this:
BLOOD RED SHOES
DROWNEDINSOUND DJS (Sean and Mike, basically)
PEOPLE ARE GERMS DJS
at Hammersith Palais; doors: 8pm-2am
Tickets for the Metric show are available both on the door and in advance from Star Green, Ticketmaster, etc... click here to buy online.
SO, dear DiSsers old and young: will we be seeing you at either show, the final two of our month-long birthday celebrations? Y'know DiS is six this month, right? Have you missed this, or this? Bring us a present and maybe we'll forget about you forgetting, eh? Where are y'all meeting prior to these shows? Anyone know any decent boozers in the proximity of either venue? That first paragraph: partially true, remember...
