Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs performed a JD Roots homecoming gig at The Shacklewell Arms in East London last night (June 6), playing alongside fellow London act Loom.

Loom's lead singer Tarik Badwan waded into the moshpit early on and clashed with fans on the front row. Watched on by Badwan's brother, The Horrors' Faris Badwan, the hardcore band performed their recent releases 'Acid King City' and 'I Get A Taste' in a seven song set that also featured the tracks 'Hate' and 'Bleed On Me'. Ending their brief support slot with 'Yosoko', Badwan was left laid out on the floor after again wading in to get up close and personal with his fans.

Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs performed soon after, filling the small venue to capacity as they ran through songs from their recently released debut album 'Clarietta'. 'Be Glamorous' and 'Things We Be' both featured early on with the band thanking fans for coming out to see them perform and promising to give them the time of their lives. Other songs performed live on the night included 'It's My Wish' and 'I've Got A River', with the band ending on 'I Watch You'.

Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs' gig was part of a three-gig run which will also see The Family Rain headline their hometown Bath's Moles venue on June 13 and Scunthorpe's The Ruen Brothers playing at The Priory Hotel on June 21.
