Hooray for mid-week gigs, especially Friendly Fires mid-week gigs. Something where you know nearly every song, and it isn’t too experimental to get your head round. Just, really fun. Lets hope there aren’t too many raucous students there.

Gig of the week…

Gang Gang Dance – Hoxton Square Bar, London


Gang Gang Dance have created what I think is probably my favourite album of the year. It looks like this is going to be their only gig of the year, so now we can see how the hell they made such a wonderful record. The only downside to this gig is that I’m guessing they won’t have Tynchy Stryder there to do Princes.
