Palma Violets

Palma Violets

The history of the 100 Club is as embedded into the walls of the underground bunker that the venue operates in as the sweat of the thousands of punk bands that have played here. Tonight, though, is opened by London-via-Australia party-rockers MT,...

Loom

Loom

It's a Wednesday night, but the Old Blue Last is ignoring the midweek lull in an admirable fashion. Meek hipsters mingle with aggro grunge kids, their mutual interests involving nursing overpriced beers and getting really sweaty in the name of...

Sky Ferreira

Sky Ferreira

Sky Ferreira is living proof that one amazing song can turn everything around. Before 'Everything Is Embarrassing' hit the blogs last summer, 20-year-old Sky was damaged goods. The LA native first came to the UK in 2010 hyped as 'the new Britney...

Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs

The Cribs/Deap Vally/Drenge

Not content with having the best new band name in Britain (let it drip off your lips: Drrrrreeeeeenge), the Castleton brothers opening tonight's show are also among the most exciting live acts you can catch right now. Raw and rude, Drenge's...

Savages

Savages

Ominous build-up music is bringing the Electric Ballroom to a breath-holding standstill. The crowd awaits the arrival of Savages, the all-female post-punk band who are filling big league venues after barely a year in existence. Then the...

Darwin Deez

Darwin Deez

Darwin Deez, in his khaki dress and headband, looks like a dancing llama. But boy can this strange-haired creature work it, interspersing his band’s jaunty jams with some well-crafted breakdancing. The 25-year-old Brooklyn oddball’s new...
