What? Rogues

Hats off to Levis’ Ones To Watch series for picking the excellent Rogues for this showcase tomorrow night. These guys sound like they’re destined for the big time. Hugely catchy guitar riffs, a dancey drum sound and big vocal hooks. Doesn’t sound original when you break it down but believe me it sounds fresh. Be warned they do look like they’re trying to be a bit too cool for school though.

There’s also all this on the night: Very special live guests TBA, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly (DJ Set), Tapedeck, Fallout, James Theaker (NME Radio), Yes Sir Idol, All Good Granny, Toppy, ATL, Levi’s Ones To Watch

For Fans Of: The Temper Trap, Klaxons, Radio 4, Friendly Fires.

When? Thursday, March 12th.

Where? The Macbeth, Hoxton.

How Much? £5
