Tonight's your chance to catch the beginning of something exciting and the end of something beautiful. The Borderline is launching its new monthly club night, "Labelled with Love" with a little help from Memphis Industries. The inaugural mini label showcase will feature Dan Michaelson fronting his band the Coastguards. Dan has also fronts Memphis Industries band Absentee, but will be taking his material from the Coastguards' sea-salty folk debut from earlier this year. Also playing is Theoretical Girl Amy Turnnidge, who will be stripping down her electro-folk to go acoustic (so probably a little more folk and a little less electro). Her debut album is coming out in August and she has a single out now. You can also catch The Go! Team DJing between sets. Keep an eye on the Club Fandango site for future Labelled with Love nights from the likes of Moshi Moshi and Cooking Vinyl.
As for the aforementioned ending, Londonist favourites The Week That Was will be playing what is billed as their last ever London show. Peter Brewis is winding down his homage to the music of 1985 and the failings of mass media with one final show in the capital before September's End of the Road Festival. If you're not one for the mud of festivals, take your chance while you can.
Labelled with Love tonight at the Borderline. Tickets are £7.50 in advance, £9 at the door. Doors at 7pm.
