We like our girl bands here at Londonist and we especially love that 60s girl band thing. The Schla La Las are the latest band to get in touch with us and point us in the direction of their excellent music. The Schla La Las are five girls with four guitars and two drumsticks, with a surfy, garagey kind of vibe to their music, and they're playing a gig this Wednesday 28th at The Spitz, to celebrate the release of their debut EP.
Being the kind souls that they are, The Spitz and The Schla La Las are offering Londonist readers discounted entry to the gig on Wednesday. All you have to do is print out a copy of Londonist (this article might be a good thing to print out but any old printout with the Londonist logo should do) and take it along with you to the gig before 8.30pm. In return for this, you will get in for a mere £4 - that's a third off the the normal entry.
The Spitz is on 109 Commercial Street, Old Spitalfields Market and is one of the best places in London to see up and coming bands. Apart from live music, you can also relax in the bistro and bar or have a look around its gallery.
If you're an untrusting soul and want to hear what The Schla La Las are like before you go to the gig, you can check out some extracts on the Schlas website. If you like what you hear, why not enter our competition because, not content with giving you money off entry to their gig, The Schla La Las are also giving Londonist readers the chance to win a copy of the EP.
To win, all you have to do is e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org (use the subject 'Schla La Let Me Win') with your name and address and the correct answer to the following question:
