- Tom Vek @ Rough Trade East (FREE)
Tom Vek’s third album, “Luck”, launched yesterday and, as is becoming normal, he’s playing a free set to album buyers at Rough Trade East this evening. It should be a lovely preamble to his gigs coming up this year.
He’s also playing:
- Tijuana Panthers @ The Shacklewell Arms, £7.50 (Tickets)
With their album, Wayne Interest, released earlier in the month, the three-piece from California are worth catching while they’re in town.

- Girl Band @ The Shacklewell Arms, £7.10 (Tickets)
Much admired Dublin band, Girl Band, made waves with their 25-second Record Store Day single, and are rightly making hay on the back of that hype.
Friday, 13th June
- Glass Animals @ Rough Trade East (FREE)
If there’s a band that can make us forget that 2014 has belonged to St. Vincent so far, it’s Oxford’s Glass Animals. Their album, Zaba, also released yesterday. This lunch-time show is worth taking a break from your screens for.
it’s important to note that the album’s title is derived from William Steig’s fantastical novel The Zabajaba Jungle where a boy embarks on a dreamy adventure through a vividly imagined jungle full of fantastical creatures and visceral vegetation.
That’s it for this week!
