Line-up

Evaline

http://www.myspace.com/evaline

Bringing thundering guitars and unique melodies to their live performances, US band Evaline have played SXSW, Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos whilst also supporting Dir En Grey and Silversun Pickups.  Recently recording with Dan Austin (Doves, Cherry Ghost, QOTSA), they have cemented themselves as emerging players in the form of powerful track ‘Beneath the Fire’ initially available as a free download. This has been followed by the digital release of the EP PATTERNED (www.iTunes.com/Evaline)

Almost Famous is their only headline show in-between support slots with Placebo at Brixton and Young Guns.

Foreign Office

Foreign Office draw influences from 60’s and 70’s soul and funk, whilst incorporating 80’s post-punk elements, which has led to comparisons to bands such as A Certain Ratio, Roxy Music and Talking Heads. They take a groove-based approach with pop sensibilities and juxtapose them with dark and paranoid lyrics.  Whilst plying their trade in previous bands (Roland Shanks, The Pistolas), individual members of Foreign Office have opened for Dizzie Rascal and We Are Scientists. It was only a matter of time before Foreign Office found their feet live.

They will release ultra-limited edition single, “On Repeat” which is produced by Amir Amor (Wiley, Marina & The Diamonds, Example).

Night Bus

http://www.myspace.com/nightbusmusic

Nightbus are three Londoners and one LA ex-pat who met on the 345 to Brixton on Boxing Day 2008. The story goes that they would meet up the bus every night. They then began singing a cappella versions of hits to pass the time. Whilst still on the bus, they began recording self-penned tunes with a laptop over samples and drum beats.

Their first single ‘I Wanna Be You’ was released via Island and Popjustice has called them “A trancey disco number that positions the band as a slightly odd but rather moreish post-Calvin Harris answer to Alphabeat.”

Entry is free and based on a first come first served basis, but you must be on the guest list to attend the gig.
