Going to London: help me find gigs

Post by LeighAnn » Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:46 pm

So, in less than 2 weeks I'm heading over to London for a week. I should have my evenings free and would love to fill them with good music and drinks. Any recommendations for cool gigs? Last year y'all hooked me up with great recommendations for Beans on toast and justice force 5, so I'm putting my trust in you again.

29 April - 6 may

Any suggestions?

Beans on Toast is playing on the 1st for free, at The Wheelbarrow, if you wanted to see him again!
We Are Augustines - 3rd May, Dingwalls.
I couldn't do this on my own

A band called the Menzingers are playing Kingston Fighting Cocks on May 5. They are incredibly good.

Excellent! You guys rock!
I guess Camden Crawl is also on, so might try to hit that up a bit.

I'll definitely try for the Beans on Toast gig.
I'm going to try to figure out where the others are.

so if you were tempted and needed two tickets then get in touch
