We’re back in action this Monday night at The Social on Little Portland Street, after our successful opening night there back in May with Channel Cairo, Bravestation and Deep Sea Arcade.
This time, we’ve got an equally enticing lineup for you – exciting London trio Them Changes are booked to headline, with their punchy, hooky-as-hell, three minute power pop. Their self-promoted Hooligan Soup event at Camden’s Wheelbarrow has been causing quite a stir of late, and with their debut single ‘Lie To Me’ being released to much fanfare earlier this year, we’re predicting big things for this group. Check out their risque video to said single below, and come down and see what all the fuss is about.
Support comes from dark electro pop trio Strangers (who we introduced to you a little while ago), whose debut single ‘If I Found Love/It Was A Sin’ has just been released on 7″ via Killing Moon and is the subject of much industry whisper and buzz right now. With lead singer David Jones formerly fronting one of our favourite mid-noughties outfits The Departure (their ’05 album Dirty Words is a lost masterpiece), we’re delighted to have secured an early appearance from his new outfit. Again, this is the beginning of an exciting road.
Opening the evening are New Zealand synth / disco pop outfit Sleepy Age, who are currently in the middle of a maiden tour of the EU. Their video for ‘Decor’ is excellent, and has won them many a blog plaudit of late. We assume the live show will replicate this.
For ticket information, see our EVENTS page. We’d love to see you down there.
The launch party for our first ever record release takes place on the 15th of this month at The Flowerpot in North London. All things considered, this is a huge night in Laissez Faire Club history – we’ve been wanting to put records out for some time now, and are over the moon we’re on the verge of getting some 7″s out there for all you good people.
Of course, Ice Black Birds will be taking to the stage to persuade you (if it were necessary) that they’re one of the most exciting live bands out there at the moment, and we’ve also arranged a stellar support bill to get things warmed up. Entry to the event is completely free, and you’ll be able to purchase copies of the IBB single on the night, should you so wish. For full details, see our events section.
If that wasn’t enough, we’re giving away a rare Ice Black Birds mp3 to anyone who RSVPs to the Facebook event. Do it here, let us know you’ve done so (by Emailing us), and we’ll whisk you a copy of ‘Problems In Hand’.
The sterling poster design was done by Oli Frape, incidentally, and is one of the best jpegs we’ve ever received. It’s all pointing towards a big one – save the date and we’ll see you by the bar, as they say.
