We're more than a little excited to hear that this collection of girl groups and jangly guitars are on the same bill. Lucky Soul, fronted by pop starlet Ali Howard, are back in London after their last headline show at Cargo, and ready to have the Tuesday night crowd shimmying along to their all-loving, all-dancing 1960s-inspired pop. They've got brass and they're no Duffy-lite retro; they're the real deal, and promise a spectacular show.
Support comes from The School, straight down from Cardiff (via the attentions of Molly Ringwald, who's a fan!), who are full of Spectory melodies and adorable choruses to turn the audience's legs to jelly. Openers The Lodger are based all around Europe, but uniting especially for this special show to bring their blend of head-rush lyrics and C86 hooks to the night's crowd.
And between the bands, Ian from famed soul and '60s night How Does It Feel To Be Loved will be playing tunes. If that's not enough, Pocketbooks have a guest DJ lurking around later to keep everyone dancing even after Lucky Soul have finished.
Lucky Soul perform at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on Tuesday 10 August, along with The School and The Lodger and guest DJs How Does It Feel. Tickets are £10 on the door.
