Rising London band The Big Moon played the capital’s 100 Club last week (April 13), following in the footsteps of the great and good in UK music. Literally everyone from The Rolling Stones to The Sex Pistols to The Libertines have played the hallowed Oxford Street basement venue in the past, and the fourpiece’s energetic brand of indie pop went down a storm with the capacity crowd. Led by frontwoman Juliette Jackson, The Big Moon powered through tracks including snarky debut single ‘Sucker’, ‘Nothing Without You’ and their latest release ‘Cupid’. Photographer Charlotte Patmore was on hand to capture it the tour, and here are her pics – taking in gigs at the 100 Club, Bristol’s Stop The Bus, Southampton’s Joiners and Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club.
Hot off the heels of premiering their new single ‘Cupid’, rising new band The Big Moon played a packed out set at the 100 Club in London last week (April 13). This shot shows singer Juliette Jackson, guitarist Soph Nathan and bassist Celia Archer in all their onstage pomp (drummer Fern Ford is just out of shot).

Are The Big Moon the hardest working newcomers in indie? Or just too skint to afford their own roadies? YOU decide.
The band have been kicking off their sets with a rendition of fan-favourite ‘Suzie’, before following it with another half hour of pristine indie goodness.
Since forming in north London at the tail end of 2014, The Big Moon have earned comparisons to everyone from PJ Harvey to The Slits.
The marvellous four women of the Big Moon spend their time making wondrous Britpop throwback tunes and basically doing an impression of the four legends from The Craft.
Among the best recieved songs of the night were last year’s breakout track ‘Eureka Moment’ which NME called “an intensely stirring stop-start rattle” in our first interview with The Big Moon in April 2015.
It’s beers (and bugles) all-round following the show.
The band that drinks together stays together.
