The Line of Best Fit presents: Great Escape pre-Part with POSTILJONEN, WYLDEST & ANNA OF THE NORTH AT THE SHACKLEWELL ARMSFREE GIG!“Describing themselves as “nostalgic dreamers”, Postiljonen weave soft, sweet synths over an underlying longing to create the perfect soundtrack for your memories. Back in December they shared The Open Road, the first track taken from their forthcoming LP Reverie. Clash called it “a stunning aural bubblebath of a track” while Gorilla vs Bear penned that it was “goosebump-inducing”. After selling out The Lexington last time out, they’ve announced this free Great Escape pre-party at The Shacklewell Arms.” * Need a bunch to go with? Folk from the fab Indie Music Meet-Up group are going!

GIG
Static Shock Records presents DEATH INDEX + SNOB + STATIC PALM + GOLDFOIL @ DIY SPACE FOR LONDON! “Death Index is a new project of Carson Cox (Merchandise, Neon Blud) and Marco Rapisarda (La Piovra, Sgurd, Archaic) which is based between Italy and America. Death Index has yielded a sound that has more in common with the primordial days of art punk than anything out there today. Roaring out of the gate with a feedback driven gallop, their album brings to mind the swagger of The Birthday Party and others. Simple synth lines and manic guitars swirl heavily throughout. Conjuring the experimental spirit of legends Suicide, while Carson’s infectious vocal croon serves as a melodious anchor through a multitude of unpredictable twists and turns.” DIY Space For London, 96-102 Ormside Street, SE15 1TF * Need a bunch to go with? Folk from the fab Indie Music Meet-Up group are going!
