Since I was in London most of last week for ATP's I'll Be Your Mirror (review to come), I could not contribute to the preview. Then, I looked at the calendar earlier today and realised that a lot of my gigs from "What's In Store for 2013" are this week. So I guess there is no rest for the wicked and I'll be out and about town, going to most of these:
Widowspeak at Comet: Nothing like a
really good pop record. Fleetwood Mac inspired for sure but also some
nice 60s surf and psych in there. Softly spoken and rocking all at once.
A nice afternoon kinda record and a promising show!
Mac DeMarco and Sean Nicholas Savage at Privatclub: Captured Tracks protegé DeMarco
is back. The hype is justified - the guy knows to throw a good party.
Support from fellow newbie Sean Nicholas Savage. A must if you want to
talk the talk in current one-man camp party projects.
Mikal Cronin at West Germany: My gig of the week. You like Ty Segall? Well Mr. Segall and Mr. Cronin just happen to collaborate all the time. You like Wavves, you like Kurt Vile, you like 'em all? You cannot miss Mikal Cronin then, can you. Snotty songwriter indie punk, lo-fi and fun. Be there!
Nicoffeine, Grow Grow and Valborg at Kastanienkeller: Read XNormanX's appreciative review of another Nicoffeine gig and know that you have to go. Enjoy!
There is so much more this week - it's a jam packed one. But we are selective and if we told you about everything, it would not exactly make your life easier, now would it? Hope to see you around - come say hi if you spot us.
