Good day giggage readers! Last few weeks have been super hectic with photog work, club nights and live music, and it looks set to continue at least until mid-December. I am NOT complaining! Here’s a quick roundup of what’s been going down in giggage-town lately, and what’s coming up soon.
One of the best new bands I’ve seen in a long time I saw twice in the last two weeks – The Wytches. Get onto these guys if you haven’t already, noisy guitars, dark vocals and gloomy bass lines. Bring on an album next year (crosses fingers). Here’s my review on Shout4Music, and a few ‘unseen’ photos below.
I also caught IC1s recently, at both Heaven (supporting The Family Rain – love those guys) and The Macbeth in Hoxton. They’ve been kicking around for a couple years but starting to get a buzz around them after supporting a few big name bands. Another review on Shout4Music here, and more photos below!
Keep an eye on the blog in the next couple days/week for photos of The Courteeners (shot them at O2 Shepherd’s Bush last night – AMAZING – Liam Fray is a delight to photograph!), a band with some history, The Damned at The Roundhouse, and a band you should all check out, Damn Vandals at The Dublin Castle (lotta ‘damn!’-ing coming up).
After that, looks like a bit of a break in transmission for the Christmas/New Year period. What are we all doing? Anything exciting? For me, the only place to be on NYE will have to be Nuis@nce, upstairs at The Enterprise in Chalk Farm. Bound to be a fun evening of Britpop, indie and pop rock tunes. What could be better?!
