LW presents: Just Handshakes (We’re British), Alto45, Hoshal Patrick, 13 April *FREE*
Yay! We’re very excited to announce the second Librarians Wanted gig this year! This time we’re at a lovely east end boozer called The Victoria, located in-between Mile End station and Victoria park. This pub effuses charm and does great American Diner style food. So why not head straight there after work to get yourself a good seat and a burger before the bands start!
Speaking of the bands, we’re so excited to be able to present the following three brilliant acts for the night.
Just Handshakes (We’re British) are a four-piece from Leeds, formed on a dingy industrial estate and bonded over their shared love of gin and Swedish pop.
“Their dynamic blend of bright vocals, jangly guitars and casio adoration, could add colour to the gloomiest of lyrics.” Drowned In Sound
Alto45 are a lab-coat wearing diy-fi pop trio from Norwich. They’ve recently released their second album. They sing songs about the sea, the moon and robots planning world domination.
“Casio-esque interstellar synth-fi to slow, lulling indie-scapes” Drowned In Sound
Hoshal Patrick is a London-based musical duo consisting of Alex & James. They make eccentric pop music involving giants out at sea, birds flying through space, nonsensical rhyme in 7/8, references to Rosemary’s Baby and the occasional soul-singing robot.
“A bit like MGMT mixed with a dollop of Adam and Joe”
Somehow I think Alto45 and Hoshal Patrick will get on!
And did we mention it’s free….?
