Tonight sees the first ever DIY Roundhouse Rising showcase taking place in Camden, London.
Dubliners Girl Band headline a bill that reads like a who’s who of exciting talent. They’re joined by Object Object, Brighton force The Magic Gang and Liverpool newcomers Hooton Tennis Club, who’ve just inked a deal with Heavenly Recordings.
The gig’s sold out, but worry not – we’ll be live-streaming the whole thing on diymag.com, from 7pm.
While you wait for the action to kick off, get to know the bands on the bill.
Girl Band’s Alan Duggan spoke to DIY about the group’s plans for a full-length on Rough Trade, and why they like to inject sense of humour into their vicious noise rock.
It’s early days for The Magic Gang, but already they’re a fixture of a Brighton scene that’s springing up more exciting names by the day. A big part of that is their hub of a shared house, which is basically a makeshift studio for prolific output. Read our introductory chat here.
And say hello to Hooton Tennis Club, who landed on their name while going to buy chips and scouring street corner road-signs – the rest of their story is way more complex and exciting.
