Fists are down in London this weekend to play 2 great looking gigs and I'm really hoping I can get down there and join them.
Firstly, on Friday night (26th March) they're at the Buffalo Bar for a Fortuna Pop party!
FISTS will be bringing the 6 Music-approved (Don Letts, Gideon Coe and Tom Ravenscroft have all been spinning the new EP tracks!) sound of Olympic Hits to our country's capital. Artrocker recently hailed them as making the washboard cool again...and you can't get cooler than that!
Joining them are fellow Hello Thor hero, WE SHOW UP ON RADAR. Fresh from a BBC Maida Vale session and bringing some delightful new songs with him, Andy will be lending London his trademark hushed lullabies for the night.
There's also THE LEAF LIBRARY (Stereolab-like drone rock meets indie pop lyricism) and the Isle Of Wight's MARCEL who "shake the ground and wet the eyes like Wilco". Awesome!
AND Tom Whalley is DJing so expect indie anthems, northern soul, post-punk, alt-rock, French pop and 60s psych alongside 80s soundtracks and a man shouting "OHHHHHHHHH!" at his own records!
It's £5 in advance from We Got Tickets / £4 cheap list if you give firstname.lastname@example.org a shout in the next 24 hours.
THEN there's a gig / coach trip organised by I'm Not From London.
I can't seem to find a lot of details about this except for this...
SAT 27th MARCH-
ROYAL GALA / FISTS / HOT JAPANESE GIRL / CUBAN CRIMEWAVE / GIMME DANGER
MILK / CITY SHANTY BAND / ULTRAJELLY / CHRIS MC DONALD & THE LEISURE CLASS / AUDIO MASSAGE DJ'S
