THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 7

Like a very, very sharp pointy thing, I’m angling my finger firmly towards a couple of upcoming musical gigs for your foot-stomping leisure. As usual, it’s just the info – you get the tickets, you get the cab and you most definitely get to enjoy them enormously. I thank you…

LADYHAWKE– This New Zealand songstress has been blogged about so much you would be forgiven for thinking she was born in a computer! Take it from me though, she is well worthy of a couple of your hard-earned guineas. I too, although somewhat late, will be blogging more about her in the upcoming RECOMMENDER 8 to add to the endless scribblings, so I’ll elaborate more then. If what you like are the sing-along, repetitive Ting Tings choruses, flirting outrageously with your Midnight Juggernauts casio thump, then this gig should definitely be one you should attend. Think upbeat, 80’s-heavy, power-pop, full of classy synth-tastic loveliness and you will no doubt enjoy tapping your feet to this with knowing approval.

ACT:                    LADYHAWKE
VENUE:                KOMEDIA
COST:                  £ 7.50
DATE:                  Tuesday 30th September 2008
WEBSITE:             www.myspace.com/ladyhawkerock

NOAH AND THE WHALE– Delightfully shiny and packed full of smiles and sunny summerness, this London 5-piece, ( – when also containing the well known Laura Marling on backing vocals!), wave anti-folk pop past you on a breeze of perfumed excellence. From their single, ‘5 years time’, gettting mucho airtime on all radio stations, to the remainder of what proves to be a brilliantly consistent album, this bunch will be an uplifting live set. Lots of brass, lots of strings and accoustic melodies. Think Arcade Fire minus the religious penetration, or perhaps Patrick Wolf minus the wacky outfits and your in the ball park. It’s such a summer thing will it feel the same in November when they hit the city of Brighton!? Only one way to tell…

ACT:                    NOAH AND THE WHALE
VENUE:                CONCORDE 2
COST:                  £ 8.50
DATE:                  Friday 7th November 2008
WEBSITE:             www.myspace.com/noahandthewhale

That should definitely give you a couple of outings post-summertime. Tickets are up now, so don’t hold back, because they’ll definitely go quickly!

I’m now leaving the house to go enjoy Loop Festival in town (circa GIG LIST 4), so hope to catch you there.

See back here for RECOMMENDER 8, which will be posted up very soon…
