HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Sat Dec 20 - GiT + Gold Sounds + Pinko + City Shanty Band + Witching Waves + Papernut Cambridge + The Understudies + Crowded Mouse + Pete Astor at Shacklewell Arms
Two constants in indiepop London. The year of gigs will kick off with Fortuna POP's Winter Sprinter season at the Lexington, and will be wrapped up with their Christmas covers gig, in which a host of bands play short sets of two or three songs and throw in a cover as part of their performance. Apparently "previous years have seen medleys of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Spandau Ballet and covers ranging from Cher Lloyd to Throbbing Gristle, from Belle and Sebastian to R Kelly (those last two in the same set!)", which sounds like lots of fun. Look out for Crowded Mouse, who feature members of Allo Darlin' and Owl & Mouse, and former Weather Prophets and Loft singer Pete Astor.
