HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Weds Sept 17 - Comet Gain + The Proper Ornaments + Evans The Death at Lexington
Superb Fortuna POP!-curated line-up at the Lexington, comprising at least two bands that have headlined the Lex in their own right. Comet Gain's most recent album, "Paperback Ghosts", is a literate, romantic joy, while The Proper Ornaments favour a super cool mixture of psychedelia and garagey indie pop. And just a few days later, James of The Proper Ornaments (and Veronica Falls of course), DJs at HDIF at the Buffalo Bar. See the show, then come dancing! Week sorted!
