Ft Charlotte Spiral, OneDa and many more
After an excellent run of shows back in January, we’re bringing back our free gig series with our friends Eat Your Own Ears (EYOE), over at one of East London’s finest venues, the Shacklewell Arms. It’ll all be happening between 27 July and 17 August, every Wednesday night. It’s totally free, but it’s always busy, so make sure you can get in by grabbing a free ticket.
Previous instalments of EYOE Recommends have featured acts including Porridge Radio, PVA, Rachel Chinouriri, Prima Queen, Human Interest, Drug Store Romeos, and many more, so you’ll almost certainly discover a future favourite at each show.
Here’s a bit detail more on who’s playing this time around.
Honeymoan: Soulful, genre-hopping alt-pop from South Africa
CVC: Punchy, magpie-like rock, combining elements from across music history
Charlotte Spiral: Sparse, elegant songcraft from an utterly distinctive voice
Gaspar Narby: Intimate, folk-inflected pop from the Swiss artist and producer
Shelf Lives: Trashy, party-focused post-punk from South London
Platonica Erotica: Noirish, deceptively heavy gothic singer-songwriter
Double Helix: Punk energy meets rave spirit and industrial grit
Hagop Tchaparian: Hyper-personal rhythm music that mixes techno withfield recordings of his travels through Armenian and Mediterranean culture
OneDa: A truly unique Mancunian MC and grassroots activist
The Queen’s Head: Another shit-hot ensemble from the Speedy Wunderground stable
Special guests TBA
Secret guests TBA
Civil Partnership: A London-based audiovisual arts collective with a vested interest in DIY methods and prolific output
For Breakfast: Boundless, genre-bending post-rock
Sophie Jamieson: Visceral, occasionally discomfiting confessionals
