Amor De Días 8.30pm
Help Stamp Out Loneliness 10.30pm
Librarians Wanted are extremely happy to present some true indiepop legends - some of our absolute favourite bands; Help Stamp Out Loneliness, Would-be-goods and Amor de Días. This time our venue is the Bull & Gate, a two-minute walk from Kentish Town Station.
Help Stamp Out Loneliness were the best act we’ve seen at London Popfest, and that made sense when we heard they had members from Language of Flowers, one of our alltime favourites - that must be why we loved them so instantly! Split Infinitives for example, is a song you will love love love! HSOL will make you feel like dancing too, so we hope you will join us in front of the stage to jump up and down and do some out-of-control fistpumping!
The wonderful Would-be-goods are almost always featured in the LW DJ sets and on the iPod when we are heartbroken or in love, or just daydreaming about meeting someone special - and again we can’t hide our excitement of having them playing. The band is in itself legendary, so not really a need to reference.. live they are just magical and you just want to dance/sway the night away. But, to namedrop a few, its members have also played in Heavenly, Talulah Gosh, Marine Research, Scarlet’s Well, The Monochrome Set, Thee Headcoatees and Adam and the Ants. (makes us dizzy just thinking about it!)
And last but definitely not least: Amor de Días! The amazing ‘new’ band that consists of our heroes Lupe Núñez-Fernández (Pipas) and Alasdair MacLean (The Clientele)! Lupe has actually played in Would-be-goods, so this will be an extra-special evening… Friends who have attended Amor de Días’ gigs this summer can’t stop raving about their live performance so we are sure you’ll love them too!
Inbetween the bands and after there will be DJ sets by Librarians Wanted, playing loud indiepop, 60s soul, 80s and post-punk - so do stay and go mad on the dancefloor! (we will)
And of course there will be free cake. Always!
