Over-18s only; FREE ENTRY
Swede Emil Svanängen, plus friends, craft delicate indie-pop not so far removed from the delightful output of Belle & Sebastian and The Shins. Recently snapped up by Sub Pop in the US and a major label this side of the pond, this will be a rare opportunity to catch one of 2007’s brightest talents before they’re upgraded to larger venues.
And for free! Jeepers…
** HOUSE OF BROTHERS**
House Of Brothers is the solo – and sometimes not-so-solo – project of Andrew Jackson, formerly of acclaimed quirk-punks The Murder Of Rosa Luxemburg. His material is tender and heartfelt, and its unhurried pace is the polar opposite of the frenetic work of his previous group. With influences including Björk and Tom Waits, expect something rather magical.
DiScover: House Of Brothers (interview)
Derek used to be a member of Rough Trade-signed indie outfit Eastern Lane, heavily tipped and much acclaimed only a few years ago. Now embarking on a solo career, this Notting Hill performance is an opportunity to see and hear a talent that, as of this very moment, is simply growing and growing.
Entertainment before, between and after the acts comes courtesy of your friendly DiS DJs and Silver Rocket DJs. At the bar, expect to find some drinks offers - house beer and wine at cheap-ish prices, oh yes. Expect, also, to see at least one DiSser dancing foolishly to Loney, Dear after a Klug too many.
