Johnny Flynn: Flowerpot gig tomorrow, new EP, summer dates + album news

We’re delighted to say that Johnny Flynn is to play at the Flowerpot on Kentish Town Road tomorrow (25th June), before he heads over to Hyde Park on Friday to support Neil Young, as you do.

For those who’ve not heard us evangelising about it yet, the Flowerpot is a rather lovely “musical drinking establishment”.  All shows are free entry and doors open at 5pm on weekdays. It’s first-come-first-served – we recommend getting there by 8pm to guarantee entry. Johnny will be joined by the folks from Transgressive Records – home to Iron and Wine, Mechanical Bride, Jeremy Warmsley as well as Mr Flynn – on the decks.

Johnny has announced that he will be debuting a new band line-up at a series of gigs and festivals over the summer. FFS highly recommends you join us, Johnny and the Communion boys at Bloom, which promises to be a corker. There’s a UK tour lined up for the Autumn, with dates to be announced shortly, and a special Transgressive 5th Anniversary show at the Union Chapel on 26th Sept, which is shaping up to have a rather lovely line-up.
