THE GIG
AIH All-Dayer Best Friends, Joanna Gruesome, Black Tambourines, Birdskulls, Nai Harvest (Saturday 31st)


A comfy scene that’s delivering on years of promise is beginning to fledge some seriously exciting releases, most notably from Joanna Gruesome who’ve landed a debut album on Slumberland Records. Alongside them, Best Friends, Black Tambourines are upping their game, while Birdskulls and Nai Harvest stand out amongst a new batch of fuzz-headed talent. It all comes together in one room - the Dalston Victoria - for an all-day event. Kicks off at 1pm.
