This night is a showcase for new talent although H.A.M. are already popular enough for a fan to have tattooed their name on his arm. This is from their new EP which they have called…’The EP’. Event Details 

Gibson Bull, Strongroom Bar, Old Street

Free entry, free music and (some) free beer! The event is organised with Signature Brew who are inspired by music to make their beer. Gibson Bull should be congratulated, having just made the coveted ‘long list’ for Glastonbury this year. Event Details

Friday 28 March

The Flight Brigade, Half Moon, Putney Bridge

The band’s lead singer, Oliver, grew up in Ohio then moved to rural Hampshire. This means their music has traces of Americana that blend well with the more English folk influences from the rest of the band. Event Details

Saturday 29 March

SugarmenBar&Co (boat), Temple Pier

This gig is on a boat. Three great bands followed by a DJ and all with amazing views across the Thames. What more could you want? Event Details

The Little Unsaid, Betty’s Coffee, Dalston

This is one of my favourite London venues. It also happens to be one of the smallest. The gig is to raise funds for ‘The Little Unsaid’ who is using pledge music to fund his next project called ‘A Filthy Hunger’. Event Details

Sunday 30 March

Patch and the Giant, The Boogaloo, Highgate

This gig is a monthly event organised by the band called ‘The Sunday Fete’ and it is a very good excuse to spend your Sunday afternoon is a cosy North London pub. The band play themselves but also choose different acts each week to join them. Event Details
