Saturday 25 July in London: Au Revoir Simone and Kissy Sell Out

If you’ve no plans in London this Saturday yet, there’s plenty of good stuff happening.

Firstly, Brooklyn electro popsters and Moshi Moshi starlets Au Revoir Simone are playing at Proud Galleries.  More inclined to the reflective, dreamy side of the genre than rip-up-the-carpet merchants like Passion Pit, ARS offer mellow, delicious grooves and – guys only – three lots of very pleasant eye candy to boot.  They sold out the Bush Hall earlier this year, and have since seen the single All Or Nothing be greeted with nothing short of reverie in blogland.  Their songs are absurdly catchy; you’ll be nothing like the mares used to in the old horse hospital. Supporting are hotly-tipped Scandi noise-sters Those Dancing Days, who I admit to knowing not a lot about.  Proud’s never the cheapest night out, but this one’s reasonable: put your name down on this Facebook page and arrive before 10pm and the show will cost a mere £6.

Those with more left in the tank, or a hankering for much more intensity are directed further eastwards, to The Count & Sinden’s one-off Warehouse Party, at the occasionally-used Scrutton St Warehouse.  A curious venue this: generally shadowy and shut, every now and again it throws a night and fills to the rafters and beyond.  The Count & Sinden are rave veterans, and responsible for the popular Mega, Mega, Mega night at On The Rocks up Kingsland Road; but for me, the real reason to go is to make shapes to the seductive sounds of fellow DJs Kissy Sell Out, who’s so-far magnificent output includes the dastardly remix of Sugababes’ About You Now available below.
