The Juan Maclean is a one man disco/electro whirlwind. He’s signed to DFA and is a long time buddy and collaborator with James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem fame. Expect the addition of vocalist Nancy Wang to give the newer tunes a bit of a poppier edge but fear not there will still be full on disco romps to satisfy older fans. This night sees The Juan Maclean playing live and launching new album The Future Will Come.

Wave Machines – Keep The Lights On

Ark People – All Eyes On Anthony

Tonight I’m at the ‘Bloody Awful Poetry’ night in Soho. It’s my first visit to Madame Jojo’s and I’m impressed by the layout of sunken dancefloor and raised stage so the band are held up for all to see, nowhere to hide. The ambience of the place is relaxed, dimly lit with tables scattered along the edges and a red sheet laced with fairy lights as the sole backdrop for the bands on show.

Them:Youth are first up this evening and I’m going to skim quickly across them as they don’t fit their surroundings or the bill this evening. Their brand of 90’s teen prom rock epics sound dated at best, the only saving grace coming from some occasionally nice drum work that gives the songs a dance edge.

Ark People
For Fans of: Joy Division, Arcade Fire, White Lies, Nick Cave.
