Librarians Wanted turns two years old this December - and what an incredible two years it’s been for us hosting our favourite bands!
Within those two years we’ve all grown up a little, we’re drinking a little less Jaeger, we are living in two different countries, (three if you count Cambridge as a country) but we are still three friends who love dancing and fistpumping to the music we adore.
(We’ve been slacking off on the cupcake baking lately though, we blame it on leaving that magical measuring cup behind in Bethnal Green)
And our dear, dear friends Stars in Coma are joining us all the way from Sweden! It will be pretty spectacular judging on their first LW performance in May 2011 back at the Dogstar, and their recent Indiepopdays Berlin gig where they looked and sounded like superstars, no less.
When Stars in Coma played Librarians Wanted for the first time, in May 2011.
Stars in Coma have a special place in our hearts as Librarians Wanted met during their gig at Indietracks in 2010. And so Peacebloom and these people can be thanked for a lot of things in our lives, the club night and people we have gotten to know. It was our big aim to book them after that festival, and so we did a year and a half ago. Now they’re making a very welcome return and we hope you’ll be there to dance!
Roo LW tattooed Stars in Coma’s name (in marker pen) on his arm the last time they played…
Oh, and they are not the only indiepop darlings coming over from one of our favourite countries, oh no! We’ve got more!
Lost Summer Kitten, sweeter than Swedish apple pie with vanilla ice cream, will be sharing their beautiful melodies with us. We dare say they are better (looking, too) than First Aid Kit? Come listen and judge for yourself!
And then… Let’s not forget Electrophönvintage! This must be London’s indiepop supergroup, consisting of so many of our favourite musicians. its members have played LW in a variety of bands; Pocketbooks and The Sunny Street —- and Electrophönvintage…. as Remi played solo two songs at our last birthday. But now they are playing a whole set as a full band. (with or without a drummer - but we do like handclaps too!)
Oh, and we have one more treat for you… The Choo Choo Trains! These girls could be compared to other lovelies such as Haiku Salut and The Middle Ones, but they’ve got their own London swagger to it, if that word can be used about indiepop. We fell in love with their songs and hope they will play the one about Oslo, as 2 of 3 LWs have a connection to this awesome city.
And then there will be dancing, a bunch of lovely people, and it is all for FREE. Our birthday present for ourselves and you.
Happy birthday to us, happy birthday, everyone.
Rupert, David and Silja LWxx
