HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri Jan 16 - Witching Waves + Chorusgirl + Charla Fantasma + Jen Schande at Power Lunches
Superb indie pop line up at Power Lunches this week, headlined by east London's Witching Waves, who released their debut album of perfect fuzz pop at the end of last year, all fizzing guitars and 60s harmonies. Support comes from HDIF favourites Chorusgirl, who play cool noise pop in the vein of The Breeders and Lush; a brand new garage pop trio called Charla Fantasma; and a solo spot from Jen Schande, whose dreamy noise pop songs come drenched with West Coast brilliance. Four fantastic bands for four quid - what's not to love? And if you fancy going dancing afterwards, it's the first night of HDIF's monthly residency at the Shacklewell Arms, which is a mere ten minutes walk away. More info on that here
