HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Tues 27 - The Goon Sax + Boys Forever at Shacklewell Arms
The brilliant Goon Sax finally make it to our shores for their first UK shows. This gig quickly sold out so an extra show has been added at the trusty DIY Space For London on Monday, but for the lucky ones with tickets this is a superb bill. The teenage headliners capture the awkwardness of adolescence superbly with their endearing jangle pop, while support Boys Forever feature Patrick, ex of Veronica Falls. Phew - made it through a Goon Sax preview without mentioning that guitarist Louis' dad is Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens. Result!
