Ticket alert: Ladytron

By on Thursday, 14th June 2007 at 12:00 am

LadytronI know, I know, I said that the last post would be the last one about events on sale this week. I was wrong. Just found out that one of my like all time favourite bands, Ladytron, are playing the Bloomsbury Ballroom on Friday 31st August.

They fuse electro and indie and shoegaze altogether for one hell of a mishmash of sounds, that is just sublime. Plus the two front girls are decidely easy on the eyes.

Ticket alert: Enter Shikari and Snow Patrol festival

By on Wednesday, 13th June 2007 at 11:46 pm

Enter ShikariTwo final announcements for this weeks on sales at Friday, 9am.

Enter Shikari have announced that they’ll play Brixton Academy, which they’ll surely sell out and have to add more dates for. They were only the second unsigned band to sell out the Astoria, so surely they’ll sell out Brixton now that they’ll have an album out too?

Secondly, those Irish bedwetters Snow Patrol have announced their own, one off festival in Ward Park Playing Fields, Bangor, County Down in Northern Ireland, which was where Gary Lightbody and Jonny Quinn grew up. They’ll be supported by Ash, The Dead 60’s, Simply Kid, Kowalski and finally We Are Scientists. Sounds like a fab festival. Oh, except Snow Patrol are headlining. Oh well, can’t have it all.
