(Two lucky TGTF readers attended the show via us.) This afternoon we’ve got a live video from the night of We Are Scientists performing ‘Make It Easy’ from the night for you.

The song appears on We Are Scientists‘ fifth album ‘TV En Français’, released back in March. Watch the performance below. To watch Twin Atlantic performing ‘Brothers and Sisters’ on the same night, head this way.

WIN / Tix to Original Penguin Plugged In session October 2014 in London starring Peace and Tigercub

By on Tuesday, 23rd September 2014 at 11:00 am

October is just on our doorstep, isn’t it? And with another month comes another fab show courtesy of fashion house Original Penguin, who are putting on another one of their Plugged In sessions at the famed London venue the Hospital Club on the 2nd of October. As we did for the show in June starring Nick Mulvey and THUMPERS and the one in July with Twin Atlantic and We Are Scientists, October’s promises to be a doozy. And yet again, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky TGTF reader! Who’s playing, you ask?

Peace rocked everyone’s world in 2013 with their debut album ‘In Love’. They’ve been working on their follow-up to their best-selling debut, so this will be an incredible chance to see the four-piece not in a massive festival setting but in much more intimate digs.

And if Peace weren’t enough for you, Tigercub from Brighton will also be playing on the night. Described by many as what Nirvana and Sonic Youth might have sounded if they were slightly more pop, they are sure to remind you of the ’90s (if you were alive back then anyway) and will be sure to get toes tapping.

Now, usually the only way into these special shows is if you sign up here at Original Penguin to put your name in for the company’s lucky draw. But as I mentioned before, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away and we want to give them to a deserving TGTF reader. Keen on winning? Of course you are. Here’s all the details to enter…

In the form below, please fill out your full name and your email address. Then to make sure you really want to see this show (and also to confirm you’re not a robot!), you’ll need to correctly answer this question: What’s the name of Peace’s next single, out on the 28th of September? Get your entries in by noon British time on Thursday the 25th of September. We’ll choose a winner from all the correct entries received and contact him/her by email. Good luck! Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only who can get themselves to London for the show, and the winner and guest must be 18+ or you will be turned away at the door (and we wouldn’t want anyone to be disappointed). All duplicate entries will be discarded.

This contest is now closed and the winner has been contacted by email.
