Young Knives to play tiny London show

Band will play to only 160 fans in the capital

Young Knives will play a gig in front of only 160 fans at the Star Of Bethnal Green venue in London on June 11.

The gig will be a warm-up show for the band’s forthcoming appearance at the Glastonbury festival at the end of the month. Tickets will cost £8 and will only be available on the door.

In a MySpace bulletin the band wrote: “Young Knives have never been a cool band, in fact we have actively rallied against all things trendy, happening and London-centric.


“We are also massive hypocrites and it is in this capacity that we would like to announce a double-super-trendy gig. The gig is in über-wanky London venue The Star of Bethnal Green and is a warm up for the Glastonbury mud-fest.

“Tickets are well limited to insure over-subscription and super-exclusive-coolness.”
