London Picks – November
November 8, 2007, 2:52 pm
Filed under: News

Not a particularly awe inspiring month for London but still plenty of fun to be had if you haven’t blown all your funds on fireworks for Guy Fawkes.

9TH NOV (FRI) – Bang Face XIIX @ Electrowerkz
If you can brave the new rave vibe then Modeselektor should be worth checking out at this gig in Shoreditch. Despite a pretty shonky video clip effort which is like an unholy matrimony of Groove Armada and Chemical Brothers minus any sort of budget, their new album “Happy Birthday” is all killer.

16TH NOV (FRI) – Milky Disco feat Lindstrom & Prins Thomas @ The Key
If your ears are needing a vacation from banging techno could be a good idea to pop along for a slice of what the kids are calling space disco. Lindstrom will be playing live so will be a good chance to hear some of his choice cuts.

17TH NOV (SAT) – Phonica Records 4th Birthday @ Unit 7
Celebration time for the London stalwart Phonica Records. Jamie Jones, Simon Riggs, Ryan Shaw and Hector all on board to make sure the music is spot on for the night although sadly no Heidi.

24TH NOV (SAT) – K7 Records @ The Key
21st birthday of the influential K7. Swayzak should put on a nice show as no doubt will improv master Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden. Could be worth giving Hot Chip a chance aslong as they promise to play ‘Down With Prince’
