White Lies / July 2013 London Residency

By on Wednesday, 12th June 2013 at 9:00 am

White Lies will be releasing their third album ‘Big TV’ on the 12th of August on Fiction Records. But ahead of that, they’ve announced something quite delicious: they will be playing three shows, on back to back nights, at London Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen. (If you were wondering, the venue looms large in the band’s history; they played their first gig ever at the very place over 5 years ago.)

Because the extremely high demand for tickets for these three highly intimate shows, they’ve decided on a lottery scheme to determine who will be allowed to buy tickets. Enter for the chance on the band’s official Web site. Please note that you must be a resident of England, Scotland or Wales in order to be eligible to enter the lucky draw. If you are chosen as one of the lucky few, you will then be allowed to purchase a pair of tickets at £18 per ticket. Be sure to get your entries in to their Web site by this Friday the 14th of June at 10 AM London time. DO NOT ENTER YOUR DETAILS HERE AT TGTF.

Tuesday 23rd July 2013 – London Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen
Wednesday 24th July 2013 – London Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen
Thursday 25th July 2013 – London Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen

Trophy Wife / June 2013 English Tour

By on Thursday, 6th June 2013 at 8:00 am

I was devastated, absolutely devastated to hear that atmospheric alt-pop band Trophy Wife, who I’ve never had the chance to see live, will be disbanding later this summer. Or technically I guess they have already disbanded, since they’ve already announced their plans that they will be no more. They’ve told fans that there will be life after the current incarnation, it’s just unclear what exact form the band and the music will take in the future.

If you live in the UK, however, there is one saving grace: the Oxford trio will be going on one final tour of the UK next week, and if I were you, I’d not miss it. So grab your tickets and catch them…while they still exist. I’ll be crying on this side of the Atlantic, mind…

Monday 10th June 2013 – Manchester Night and Day
Tuesday 11th June 2013 – Leicester Cookie Jar
Wednesday 12th June 2013 – Bristol Start the Bus
Thursday 13th June 2013 – London Birthdays
Friday 14th June 2013 – Oxford Academy 2

Video of the Moment #1218: Suede

By on Friday, 31st May 2013 at 6:00 pm

Suede have a new video out for ‘Hit Me’, which takes the term literally and lets it loose in a museum. Oh dear. I hope there aren’t too many drunk kids getting ideas from this… Brett Anderson hasn’t sounded better, though, I have to say. Anthemic Suede is back.
