Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five small/medium gigs around town this week.
Tuesday 26 August
Gangs, The Macbeth, Hoxton
Wednesday 27 August
94 Gunships, The Elgin, Ladbroke Grove
Free entry gig. Thumping drums, creaky guitars and markedly creakier vocals make up this motley five piece’s distinctive heavy hillbilly sound. The melancholic, jaded, jilted sound of “big society” life. @94Gunships, @the_elgin
Thursday 28 August
Jess Roberts and The Silver Rays & New Street Adventure, Sebright Arms, Dalston
This week’s double bill. Jess Roberts and The Silver Rays — it’s a busy time for this band as they have just come back from playing Hideaway Festival and will be playing the Royal Albert Hall as part of Blues Fest at the end of October. New Street Adventure — the protest song has been updated! This is the latest single to be released from their debut album which is due out next month. @thesilverrays, @NewStAdventure, @SebrightArms
Friday 29 August
Hannah Williams & The Tastmakers, The Blues Kitchen, Shoreditch
Hannah Williams was born to sing like this. Her voice is deliciously raw, and delivers every note straight to your soul. We can’t think of a better venue for this band to play than the newly opened Blues Kitchen in Shoreditch. @HannahFWilliams, @TheBluesKitchen
Saturday 30 August
Ordinary Noise, Barfly, Camden
A great little indie band from Colchester. These guys were amazing when they came into the studio to play live. Their track are chock full of brilliant lyrics delivered by their very talented front man Lou. Don’t miss them play in this classic Camden venue.@Ordinary_Noise, @TheBarflyHQ
