Thursday 23rd September
Lost Left + The Racket + Frozy + Panther Society
Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, London SW9 6LH, FREE admission
Since they played their debut gig at HDIF Presents in Nov 2008, London trio Lost Left have toured with Erland And The Carnival and been compared to Yo La Tengo and Grizzly Bear. We hear the likes of Galaxie 500 and The Clientele in their fragile, beautiful songs, and can't wait to see them again.
A three quarters female four piece from London, The Racket say they've dealt with disaster in love by "stealing all The Ramones records they could get their hands on, 'borrowing' old electric guitars from ex-lovers and writing a whole load of songs about romance, ice cream and artistic exhibitions." The result is hand-clapping punk rock in the vein of The Go-Go's and Betty & The Werewolves.
A four piece from London, Frozy play adorable lo-fi pop. Or as they say: "we're a DIY type pop band with occasional noise. Favourite bands are Jonathan Richman, Velvet Underground, Wave Pictures, Herman Dune, Jens Lekman and all that flim flam. We've supported the Bundles, Jeffrey Lews, and played with Kimya Dawson a number of times, as well as organising a tour all over Europe."
A brand new duo from London, comprised of neighbours Anastasia (of Baby Honey) and Nabil, Panther Society flit between scrappy lo-fi pop reminiscent of early B-52s and elegant electro pop that recalls The Shortwave Set.
