Zentrifuge – London gig night

Zentrifuge Poster (side)I don’t normally like to do a whole post on just one gig, thinking it’s a bit unfair to the thousands of other promoters out there trying to make some money and bring people in during these tough times. However, this one’s a bit different. Winston’s Zen, who I’ve been a big fan of since the very start of TGTF, are organising their very first gig night, Zentrifuge, on Thursday 9th July at the North London Tavern on Kilburn High Road.

Tickets are £5 on the door, or £3.5 with a flyer (just click the flyer to the right). DJs will be playing laidback grooves inbetween slots, and it sounds like a great venue – Winston claims it’s the best pub in town, feeling like a reading room in an old stately home.

So, just who have they got playing? Well, for a debut gig night it looks pretty ace – three bands that going by their myspace pages are destined for good things. Check them out:

Damien Renouf (pictured top) – a pretty voiced solo acoustic chap Winston found on a trawl through myspace. He claims to not really have a set, just a growing list of songs he picks from depending on how he’s feeling. Sounding a bit like JJ72 mixed with Belle and Sebastian, he has a strong yearning feel to his tunes.

Turrentine Jones will be playing their first gig outside of Manchester, with their great mix of bluesey rock.

The Shades are the headliners, and is an assumed name for a band we’re not supposed to mention. They’re trying to dodge industry attention by sticking clear of London for a while. They’re coming out of hiding for the night, but asked that their real name isn’t used. They’ve got a great blend of summery rock/pop that is a sort of mixture between the Beach Boys and the Strokes.

So, if you have no plans for your Thursday night on 9th July, pop on down to the North London Tavern for Zentrifuge. Download flyer here.
