HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Sat July 18 - Belle And Sebastian at Somerset House
Fresh from a superb set at Glastonbury festival, Belle And Sebastian throw an open air party in central London, at the gorgeous Somerset House. Expect electropop songs from their recent album, "Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance", mixed in with the indiepop classics of yore, plus a giant dance-off onstage with a huge crowd of fans. And if you fancy more dancing after the show, we're hosting a Belle & Sebastian dance party at the Shacklewell Arms. More info on that here
