Firstly, Charlotte from The Subways is playing a DJ set @ Sakura this coming Tuesday 27th November. Tickets are £4 advance from Kind bar, or £5 on the door. Exciting stuff, but shame its not the full band.
Erol Alkan is making a much anticipated trip to Lincoln on Friday 30th of November to play Audiojak at the Cell. Doors are from 9pm, £6 entry. This is going to be heaving, make sure you get their early. Erol is one of the most prestigious movers in the british electro indie scene, remixing everyone from the likes of Bloc Party to Klaxons. Famed for his live show, a complete and utter must-see!
Club Indiependance makes another big-hitting appearance at the Cell in mid-December for its Christmas Party with a headline slot from NME-darlings Blood Red Shoes, a drums/guitar combo from Brighton who have previously toured with Pull Tiget Tail and the Rumble Strips. Keep an eye on the Club Indiependance myspace for more information, and find a fabouls remix of their debut single at the end of the post.
In February the Engine Shed plays host to Lincoln's very first NME Tour date, with scenster darlings The Cribs, along with support from Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong, Does It Offend You Yeah?, and The Ting Tings. A fabulous collection of band names if ever there was one! There's an mp3 from JL&TJJJ below, while tickets are available now from the Engine Shed box office and at all the usual online sources.
Lastly, the Drill Hall returns to the live music fold with a revitalised incarnation of its Pioneer Club, now under the guise of 'Now we are: lincoln'. This night is now promoted by local indie lads Andy and Luke, both veteran DJ's or band members. Their opening night is on Saturday 2nd February when they play host to the fabulous King Creosote. You can find a gorgeous song by him below, along with material from the other artists mentioned above.
