Peace play tiny gig on Hammersmith Palais site

The intimate crowd included DIY competition winners.

Last night (21st May) Peace played an intimate gig at site of the Hammersmith Palais (the venue The Clash talk about in their song, fact fans - home to countless brilliant gigs back in the day when west London was the place to be) for DIY and Skullcandy, as part of the latter’s European #STAYLOUD series that will celebrate the memory of once great music venues in London, Paris and Berlin.

The location is currently a gym, and one of the downstairs exercising rooms was reconditioned to give room for an impromptu stage, between weights and various other sports equipment.

Peace’s hour-long set was mostly filled with new material from second album ‘Happy People’, with ‘Money’ and ‘Lost On Me’ receiving the biggest sing-alongs of the evening.

“We’d love to stay all night and play whatever, but we gotta go!” said frontman Harry Koisser right before the bass solo of set closer ‘World Pleasure’, probably one of the best moments of the night.

The roaring fans asking for an encore where redirected to the after-party at a bar next door, where the proceedings continued until the early hours.

They played:

Follow Baby
Gen Strange
Lost On Me
California Daze
Perfect Skin
Bloodshake
Money
I’m A Girl
Lovesick
Wraith
World Pleasure
