The Cribs Gallows and Ghostface Killah are set to play intimate shows as part of a new season of Converse Gigs at London's 100 Club.

Ghostface Killah, The Cribs, Gallows, Doom and more will all perform at 100 Club on Oxford Street in April with The Cribs performing first on April 17. They will then be followed the next night by the arrival of hip-hop heavyweights Ghostface Killah and Doom. The three nights of gigs will then be rounded off with a headline set by Gallows on April 19. Support on that night will come from Carnival Kids and Hoax.

Get Dirty is an 11-city music series featuring performances by a number of big-name artists and will kick off on Tuesday March 19 in Paris. Further events in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Vienna, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Milan are also set to take place.

London dates and line-up:

The Cribs, China Rats (April 17)
Ghostface Killah, Doom (18)
Gallows, Carnival Kids, Hoax (19)


For nine nights in July and August 2012, The 100 Club was host to Converse Represent, which saw artists including the likes of Blur, Nas, and Plan B play exclusive, intimate shows. Blur played a set that drew heavily on 'Modern Life Is Rubbish', but also featured seldom-heard B-sides and new track 'Under The Westway'.

Paul Weller's show was attended by Liam Gallagher, who watched from the wings, and after the show promised that his band Beady Eye would one day play the 100 Club themselves.

The Converse and 100 Club-curated music series began with Graham Coxon’s performance in June 2011. Since then, Gorillaz Sound System, The Rapture, The Vaccines, Chairlift, Ghostpoet, Azari & III and many more have taken to the stage.
