HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Thurs 15 - Belle and Sebastian at Royal Hospital Chelsea
Excellent week for gigs in London this week. Spearmint and Tigercats play the Lexington on Monday. Sweet Baboo at the Lexington again on Thursday. Tindersticks at the Barbican on Saturday, and Jeffrey Lewis at DIY Space For London also on Saturday (and if you fancy going dancing after, it's HDIF's Ziggy Stardust special at The Phoenix). But let's give GOTW to this one-off date for Belle & Sebastian at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, an intriguing outdoor venue close to the newly Labour borough of Kensington. The Belles were superb on Blackheath last year and should the weather keep fine, this'll be another lovely night.
