Thereis a brand new one day, multi-venue music festival coming to East London. Working in conjunction with the Independent Label Market, the East End Film Festival has created East End Live, a musical extravaganza featuring breakthrough along with more established bands and DJs from East London and beyond.
Taking place on Saturday 13th July across 5 East End venues from 5pm to 5am you can catch bands like psychedelic indie rockers Toy, post-punk heroes The Monochrome Set, Leeds metal band Wet Nuns, hardcore group Perspex Flesh, French cold wave innovators Charles De Goal, intelligent indie from Australia’s Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, dark drone from East Londoner Moon Zero, cosmic heaviness courtesy of Teeth Of The Sea and riot girl grunge from Skinny Girl Diet. Breathe!
There will be a series of pre-parties for East End Live, including a celebration of the release of Douglas Hart’s (ex-Jesus and Mary Chain) debut solo record, taking place at the Griffin towards the end of May, and a special performance from former This Heat / Camberwell Now drummer Charles Hayward at The Old Blue Last on Monday 24th June.
In the mean time lets watch this interview with TOY filmed by Voyeurs bassist Danny Stead during their recent trip together to Paris for Disquaire Day.
