Saturday Looks Good To Me
What can we say about the magnificent Saturday Looks Good To Me? A perfect pop six piece from Ann Arbor, Michigan, SLGTM create their own sublime dreamworld where Jonathan Richman fronts The Supremes and The Smiths are signed to Motown. They played a spectacular show at HDIF Presents in 2005, and we're overjoyed to have them back.
Lucky Soul Lounge Show
Lucky Soul and SLGTM on the same bill? Pinch us someone. Lucky Soul could happily sell out JAMM in their own right, but because they're the nicest band on the planet, they've agreed to this "Kids At The Club" double header. To make the night even more special, they've decided to appear as the Lucky Soul Lounge Show - a one-off, never to be repeated, semi-acoustic performance!
Formed by Liz of The Loves as a side-project, The School sound like genuine contenders to us: a swoonsome waltz through the best bits of Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and 60s girl groups. Could they be more HDIF? This is their second ever gig - the first being the night before our show!
When he's not playing bass in Saturday Looks Good To Me, Chris Bathgate plays gorgeous indie folk. A departure from the usual HDIF Presents fare, but a welcome one. Turn up early for some mellow magnificence.
