HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Sat 18 - Robert Forster + Comet Gain + Pete Astor + Martin Carr at Lexington
Wow, just wow. What an incredible line-up. Four headliners on the same bill, four bona fide legends, so much incredible music promised for one evening. German label Tapete host the gig of the year to celebrate 15 years of quality pop with four of their finest artists. Former Boo Radleys songwriter Martin Carr graciously opens proceedings, Pete Astor of The Loft and The Weather Prophets follows up, then it's the glorious Comet Gain, and then - and then! - it's former Go-Between Robert Forster. Oh my god. What a bill. And better still, if you fancy going dancing afterwards, it's HDIF at The Phoenix on the same night! Yes! Paul Court of The Primitives is our guest DJ and we're celebrating 50 years of "Forever Changes" by playing every song from the LP over the course of the evening. Phew! More info on that here
