Preview: Hey Sleeper @ House of Wolf

Reading’s Lo-Fi-nest Troubadour of today , Mr. Luke Roberts brings his own scribbling to the House of Wolf in North London tomorrow night. By its own admission, the House of Wolf is a multi-functional, multi-sensory pleasure palace, dedicate to creative pursuits of dining, drinking, art and entertainment – so it only feels right that you should fill your belly, order up your Kraken rum and enjoy the self penned acoustic bliss of Hey Sleeper.

All those riding on the crest of the two year Ben Howard wave, turn off YouTube , stop listening to Radio 1 and take a punt on Hey Sleeper – you will not be disappointed. Don’t be fooled because Hey Sleeper and alias Luke Roberts are not shortlisted nominees for best newcomer as voted for by corporate bigwigs of the record company that owns them! Simply forget the TV for a few hours and actually get yourself to a fucking gig, because best of all, it cost less than a daily red top rag too. So instead of reading all about a footballer’s latest failings as a lifelong partner and his conquests between the sheets of Travelodge, instead group en masse to North London and enjoy the poetic musings of Luke Roberts and immerse yourself in Tear in the Heart and more from the mind the this Berkshire singer songwriter.

Some of the best things in life are free.
