London Gig Guide August - September

If I lived in London (which I kinda do!) I'd be going to the following gigs over the next month:

Thursday 19th August 2010: Sam Amidon, Caitlin Rose, Artur Dyjecinski, CAMP £10
http://www.localism.org.uk/main/shows?m=show&id=100

CAITLIN ROSE!!! Say no more than that really! Cannot wait for this, limited tickets still left. Caitlin is support so make sure you don't turn up at 10pm.

Friday 20th August 2010: Je Suis Animal with Still Corners and Hong Kong In The 60s at The Drop £5
http://www.wegottickets.com/event/86363

The only excuse I accept for not being at this gig is being at The Green Man festival, in which case I am jealous. What a line-up that festival has. Still Corners are about to get massive, this is their 7" launch and Je Suis Animal are great too. It's a fiver!

Tuesday 24th August 2010: The Like with Still Corners at Madame JoJo's
http://www.whiteheatmayfair.com/

So yeah, this hasn't been annouced yet, but it will be. The Like playing a Reading warm-up at Madame JoJo's - check for tickets above and you get to see Still Corners again. Win.

Thursday 26th August 2010: Wildbirds & Peacedrums at The Lexington

SOLD OUT Kiddies, so if you haven't got a ticket, you can go to this one instead: why oh why is this not another day so I can do both!

Warpaint at Camp Basement in London, UK

Wednesday 1st September 2010: Zola Jesus with The Haxan Cloak at CAMP
http://www.wegottickets.com/event/82739

Zola Jesus in London, yeah. That's all you need to know.
The other gig I'd be going to on this day (Caitlin) is sold out, so you've only got one option.

Thursday 2nd September 2010: Mountain Man at St Giles-in-the-Fields Church
http://www.wegottickets.com/event/87210

This gig is going to be special, very special. Get to it.

I'm hoping that it's an early curfew (it's in a Church after all) as Stricken City are playing too - it's FREE!:

Monday 6th September 2010: Caitlin Rose at the Brixton Windmill
https://www.wegottickets.com/event/89799

This will sell out soon, get your tickets now. It's Caitlin. It does involve a trip to Brixton, but C'est La Vie.
Heidi Spencer support will very likely have a page here when I get around to it!

Tuesday 7th September 2010: Zola Jesus at Rough Trade East

Lovely super dooper RT are offering a free instore...

Wednesday 8th September 2010: Fever Ray with Zola Jesus at O2 Academy Brixton

Yeah, this will be good...

Thursday 9th September 2010: Caitlin Rose at Rough Trade East 7pm

Thursday 9th September 2010: Emily Jane White, Les Shelleys, Lanterns on the Lake, The Slaughtered Lamb

http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=386425&referral_id=tw_uk_buyat

Sunshine City LIVE - yes please. Anna is grand too.

Friday 17th September 2010: Let's Buy Happiness with Escapitsts at Brixton Windmill
www.wegottickets.com/event/89021

Debut London show - get in there. Escapitsts I covered last week, worth a trip to south London on a Friday.

So that's about the next 30 days covered with maybe a few gaps for sleep and new shows to be arranged.
See you there.
