This week sees BlagSound hosting a blistering after-show party for Pete Doherty. Tickets for Pete’s show are now sold out, but the indie mayhem will continue in the front room with live sets from some of London’s most sought-after bands, complimented by DJ sets filled with modern rock floor fillers. And you can dance til the small hours, as later on the BlagSound team are joined by legendary underground party crew ‘Call The Landlord’ for a skinful of electro, drum n bass, dubstep and more. All accompanied by the most insane drinks deals south of the river. Book the Friday of work, because this is one midweek party you can’t afford to miss!
South London four-piece The Shades are generating an incredible buzz in London. Their recent live debut was an incendiary headline performance at West London’s legendary Death2Disco. This month the insatiable demand has seen bookers clamouring to book them – they are playing no less the five headline shows across London, with Thursday’s gig at Brixton JAMM being the Pièce de résistance. Their balls-out blues rock’n’roll, combined with the cheek and swagger of early Kings Of Leon and just the right amount of post-teen angst has seen them compared to the likes of The Gaslight Anthem, Against Me and The Hold Steady. A widescreen sound that deserves to be heard live.
