November 2009 Levi's Ones to Watch Line-up is Certainly not Pants
The final plethora of Levi's 'One's To Watch' gigs has been confirmed and what a line-up. It's certainly less cheesy than my headline above and takes residence for 4 days at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen and closing with a finale event on the 5th night at Cargo (Rivington Street). LOTW has been a monthly feature of Barfly venues around the country since 2004 and gives new talented acts to perform in front of a like-minded and eager audience, none more so this year so far. 2009's series has seen Temper Trap, White Lies, Black Lips and Passion Pit appear at various venues for example. Previous years have seen Editors, Santogold and We Are Scientists tread the boards.
The 2009 finale starts on Monday 16th November with sets from Cherbourg's lead singer, Andrew Davie (epic nu-folk), Goldheart Assembly (folk-pop) and Young Rebel Set (acoustic rousers).
Tuesday 17th November brings together Kitsune baroque-rockers Crystal Fighters, swoonsome psychedelia from the rather tasty Violens and the unique self-packaged Wild Palms. Liking this night!
Wednesday 18th gathers Marina & The Diamonds (Bush, Amos lyrical-painter), Wolf Gang (sort of Roxy MGMT Music) and the sampled electro soup of Clock Opera.
Thursday 19th is the last night at the Hoxton Bar and herds the rousing quirky-pop of Sky Larkin, funky-ass soul and beats of MPHO and hotly-tipped singer Beth Jeans Houghton.
For Friday's event you will need to travel to nearby Rivington Street for the finale at Cargo. Under the arches you will witness the climax of a busy week with appearances from digital-analogue pop specialists, The Whip and no less than 4 other electronic-flavoured acts PLUS a welter of 'very special guests'. Chuck in a DJ set from Sweet As A Nut and you have a pretty hefty night ahead.
Tickets cost £8 for the 4 Hoxton Bar nights while the Cargo finale only is FREE - these very limited gratis tickets will be available from November 2nd at selected Levi outlets. Check the website for locations from this date.
