HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri Aug 14 - Ultimate Painting at Power Lunches
First night of a weekend residency at the intimate Power Lunches for the brilliant Ultimate Painting, the band formed by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Jack Cooper of Mazes. The duo and friends have just released their second album, "Green Lanes", which is awash with more pristine, post Velvets indie pop. Support comes from Primitive Parts and Al Mckay on the first night and Former Bullies and Pete Astor on the second, and if you fancy going dancing after the show on Friday, then Paul of Allo Darlin' and Jonny of the Wave Pictures are DJ-ing at HDIF at the Shacklewell Arms, five minutes walk from Power Lunches.
