Micachu and The Shapes, Kaz Bar, Swn 2008

What? Micachu and The Shapes + Lime Headed Dog

Hailing from my very own East London this band are picking up a lot of fans right now. If you like your music note perfect then this probably isn’t for you but if you like a witty turn of phrase and a bit of character then this unconventional all girl indie group may be for you. Combining (usually tiny!) electric and acoustic guitars with sweet keys and even a bit of a live hip hop/drum n bass/jungle beat at times. Main lady Mica even sung into a hoover for vocal effect last time I saw her! For a bit of name dropping Mica counts Bat for Lashes and Bjork amongst her fans.

When? Saturday 31st Jan

Where? The Macbeth, Hoxton

How Much?  £5

Micachu and The Shapes – Lips

Sŵn 2008: A brief band review.

Posted in Gigs, Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2008 by musicmuleblog

This festival is a better representative of the wristband festival than say The Great Escape as there are a lot of good venues very close to one another and with the exception of one or two you seem to always be able to get in at the last minute. This makes gig hopping much easier but nevertheless I still managed to miss some noteworthy performers such as Eugene McGuinness and Golden Silvers. Here are links and some pics (shot by yours truly) of some bands that provided my weekend highlights:
