(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door because it makes sense right?)

Future Event:

The Electroacoustic Club 5th Birthday Concert
ft. The Johnny Parry Trio (album launch) + Soy Un Caballo + This Is The Kit (split single launch) @ The Union Chapel, May 9th
Early bird tickets are available @ £6 (link) other advance tickets/door are £8 (link)

Continuing the 5th birthday celebrations, the kind people at The Electroacoustic Club are also offering you a present in the form of a FREE Downloadable EP with songs from all the artists who will be playing during the evening.

This week I'm going to be dusting down my fishing rod, packing my sandwiches and heading off on a fishing trip with Mr Johnny Flynn to The Lexington, probably one of the least likely places to find a fish unless it's on the menu. I'm not really sure of why this is being called a fishing trip but Johnny does seem to want to run with the theme requesting we all bring our own fish to the show.

"last minute request for those of you coming to the gig this tuesday at the lexinton (the fishing trip)...please help me decorate the room by bringing (very not compulsory) a FISH of your own design and hand - be it drawn, cut-out, papiermashed, painted, loved, caught hook, line and sinker; we will display them all a-la tony hart as part of the evening. the more fantastical the better. think magical realism. think picasso. think fish. someone'll win a beautiful hand-made medallion, i warrant, for most beautiful fish. eat your hart out tony."

I'm intrigued!
