If you're free on Thursday night (13th Dec), then Mercury nominees The Young Knives are playing a pretty cool headlining gig at Canvas, Kings Cross. The Rage Out In Winter is an all evening event (7.30pm - 2am) aiming itself an a more discerning gig goer, hoping to provide cool bands in luxurious settings. They've even got proper caterers on the case to provide food to gig goers which we think is a great thing. Too many hangovers are caused by going to gigs without managing to get any dinner down our necks!
One of the most unlikely looking indie groups, The YK's play their spiky indie in a frantic kind of style and with lyrics like "Hot Summer! What A Bummer!" you know you're not going to get weighed down in thoughtful shoegazing. They're going to be supported by three great other acts; Ahuman, a 6 piece indie/electro outfit who've just been signed to Wall of Sound, Bill Oddie's musical daughter Rosie Oddie & The Odd Squad and London indie boys The Bishops
Tickets are £19.50 and include 2 free drinks which sounds like a good deal to us. And if you need one more reason to go, Canvas is being knocked down very soon as part of Kings Cross redevelopment plans, so this may be your final chance to enjoy the venue.
Buy tickets here or we've got two to give away. We'll let you know on Wednesday if you're a winner:
