One of our favourite London bands Boy Kill Boy release new single Civil Sin today, the third single to be taken from their debut album Civilian. To celebrate the band complete with their very straight hair and swoonworthy eyeliner will be performing at the new Fopp on Tottenham Court Road at 5.30pm on Tuesday Aug 1.
Originally released last year on Fierce Panda, you can watch the new video online here which in parts was filmed in the Electric Ballroom earlier in the year.
Causing chaos everywhere they go, The Horrors will be playing a gig at Holloway Road's Puregroove Record Store on Wednesday Aug 2. Last time they played in London, fans queued outside the 100 Club for more than five hours before their performance, so we would recommend you get there somewhat early for this one.

Cornorshop's Ben Ayres will be Djing between the bands and the night runs from 6pm to 10pm. Full details here.
