Last Minute Listing: The Candle Thieves @ 93 Feet East


With most of the good bonfire night celebrations left till the weekend, why not head down to 93 Feet East to catch The Candle Thieves opening up for The Complete Short Stories and Bruised Beauties .

The duo originally hailing from Peterborough, will be bringing the warmest blend of sunshine pop, from a box of instruments literally straight out of Toytown, to London. Their bittersweet pop songs, are composed with a wide range of instruments including the glockenspiel, a percussion favourite, that will leave you reminiscing about childhood music classes.

Drawing upon the influences of the Eels and Sufjan Stevens, The Candle Thieves’ own brand of endearing, ramshackle casio-led pop, that is sure to guarantee a good night out. The band has been generating a lot of interest in the past few months with the release of their debut The Sunshine EP. Their music which has been described as a ‘delicious blend of music that’s quirky without being up its arse’, is a lot of fun and a great way to chase away the November blues.

Tonight: 93 Feet East from 7:30, with tickets available on the Door for £5 with flyer or from
