HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Tues Oct 14 - Withered Hand + Darren Hayman & The Long Parliament + The Understudies at Scala
Excellent line up at this Fortuna POP! curated show at the Scala. Headliners Withered Hand - led by songwriter Dan Wilson - are responsible for one of the albums of the year in "New Gods", a glorious mixture of folk and indiepop, while support comes from two sets of HDIF favourites, the brilliant Darren Hayman playing a very rare gig with his band The Long Parliament, and the wonderful Understudies. If you require some intelligent, literate, romantic pop music in your life, then this is the show for you. We'll be playing records before and between the bands, warming up for our Belle & Sebastian special on Friday night. Come out!
