HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri 26 - Darren Hayman at Horse Hospital
An excellent selection of indie pop, indie folk and glam-pop-power-punk gigs happening in London this week. The Leaf Library bring their kraut pop to The Victoria on Wednesday, The Priscillas bring a glam sparkle to The Finsbury on Thursday, and The Primitives, The Telescopes, The Orielles, Joe Innes & the Cavalcade and Darren Hayman play all over the capital on Friday. All are well worth the GOTW gong, but let's go for Darren, who plays in support of his latest Thankful Villages album, at the atmospheric Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury.
