News & Tributes

Wolf Parade's follow up to Apologies To The Queen Mary is out on June 17. With a working title of 'Kissing The Beehive,' the Montrealers seem to be continuing along quality paths with their quirky rock. Find an interview and tracklisting at Billboard and listen to a taster at Pitchfork.

Rodrigo y Gabriela are scheduled to play London Roundhouse on June 25th. I have been lucky enough to see this Mexican acoustic rock duo several times in tiny venues and I cannot stress enough how they are the most amazing live act I have seen to date. The energy in their simple performance is so captivating it leaves you transfixed long after the show has ended.

Maxïmo Park has announced a special one off charity show at the Kentish Town Forum on 28th May. A very rare opporunity to see these Newcastle elfins in intimate surroundings. The show is in aid of two cancer charities including The Royal Marsden. All proceeds go straight to charity and support comes from Mystery Jets, Blood Red Shoes and Pete and the Pirates. I would suggest a good deed for the day and purchase your ticket but they sold out within minutes. I suppose we will all have to watch it on TV.
