One of this summer’s hottest new bands, Reverend and The Makers, are set to play two exclusive shows on Saturday, which could be one of the last chances to see them before they explode and you can say “I saw them when they were tiny”.Currently garnering tonnes of airplay on Radio 1 with their new single “Heavyweight Champion”, they have a brand of electro-funk that’s perfect for the festivals…. Catchy, danceable and hundreds of things in between, you’ll probably love them. If you hate them you might as well bury your ears in the sand this summer.They’re doing an in-store at Fopp on Tottenham Court Road at 6pm on Saturday, before going on to do a headlining show that same evening at Frog at Mean Fiddler. Expect chaotic shows and possible mix tape handouts galore when you see them, along with tunes that you won't get out of your head for the rest of the summer. Give them a go if you can.
