The Bank Holidays
A four piece from Perth, Australia, The Bank Holidays are rising stars down under - they won a Western Australian Music Industry Award for Best Indie Pop Group in 2007, have duetted with Peter, Bjorn And John, and played shows with everyone from Belle & Sebastian to The Lucksmiths. Musically, they've been compared to The Shins and The Go-Betweens, and we can't quite believe they're playing our free admission night!

Help Stamp Out Loneliness
Debut UK show for this amazing new band from Manchester. Featuring Colm and Bentley from indie popsters Language Of Flowers, HSOL - named after a Nancy Sinatra song, of course - are, in their own words, "a lounge-gaze-krautpop band". We hear Yo La Tengo, Stereolab, and St Etienne in their swoonsome songs.

The Mai 68s
Noise! Revolutionary chic! A stand up drummer! If Laetitia Sadier had fronted early Jesus And Mary Chain, they may have sounded a little like this Leicester foursome - ear-splitting yet full of poise, chaotic yet cool.

Hissing At Swans
Hissing at Swans call themselves "a ramshakle ukelele and 80's keyboard demo collective from Essex/East London" - which means they're a female duo in thrall to Magnetic Fields and Moldy Peaches who approach gigs as if they're art installations. Expect homemade films and lots of off-kilter charm.

Doors 7.30pm
Hissing At Swans 8pm
The Mai 68s.8.45pm
Help Stamp Out Loneliness 9.30pm
The Bank Holidays 10.15pm
