If you were at the Mystery Jets’ Brixton Academy gig on Friday night — or, for that matter, if you weren’t — you might like the idea of catching the Eel Pie Island group in altogether more intimate surroundings.
If you’re free tomorrow night and have eight quid burning a hole in your pocket then you’re in luck. The west London group — whose fourth album, Radlands, has a distinctly American feel — will play a special acoustic set at Proud in Camden.
Apparently the gig is the result of a challenge The Observer set some of its music writers, to make money from a £100 starting point. But however it’s come about, it should be a good chance to hear the band’s new material in a smaller-than-usual venue.
