What? Blur / Foals / Crystal Castles / Friendly Fires

This second date has been added to the initial Friday one and it’s a truly amazing line-up to warrant your £45. Blur need no introduction. Here’s a brief synopsis of the others:

Foals: math rock i.e. indie disco meets prog rock i.e. loud, fast, danceable rhythms with amazing instrumentation and shouty vocals. Way better than it sounds! They made my favourite album of last year – Antidotes.

Crystal Castles: Cool as fuck Canadian experimental electro duo of Alice Glass and multi instrumentalist Ethan Kath.

Friendly Fires: English disco rock heroes who ahve caused a real stir since releasing their debut album last year. Think an English version of The Rapture and you’d be near enough.

For Fans Of: Blur, The Rapture, Bloc Party, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Holy Fuck, Battles.


When? Thursday, Jult 2nd.

Where? Hyde Park, London.

How Much? £45

Foals Sell out Show at Brixton Academy, Oct 08

What? Foals DJ set

The Oxford boys that are Foals have had an amazing year in 2008 which included the release of their magnificent debut album Antidotes and extensive touring across Europe culminating in a sold out gig at Brixton Academy which I was fortunate enough to witness. Saturday’s set isn’t quite the same as a live performance but I’m told these guys can spin a disc or two – expect anything from disco to breakbeat to twisted electro. Oh and its free!

When? Sat 24th Jan, 8pm-1am

Where? The Lock Tavern, Camden

How Much? FREE
