Preview: River Rat Pack All Dayer

At a bit of a loss for things to The River Rat Packget up to over the bank holiday weekend? (It’s the last weekend of August, in case you don’t have a calendar or something).  There’s a day’s worth of musical delights on offer at The Old Queen’s Head in Hoxton on Sunday 29th (for free if you turn up before 8pm).

Tempted?  Allow me to further whet your appetite:

Man Like Me are a rather funky London-centric band peddling a very unique, up-to-the-minute brand of pop.

King Charles has loads and loads and loads of hair, friends including Laura Marling and Noah and the Whale, and a poetic, never-skips-a-beat way with words.

Josh Weller is sweet as a nut, soulful in his singing and impeccable in his choice of bow ties.

And that’s just three of the acts.  To summarise: live music, exemplary DJs, food, drink, merriment and (hopefully) sunshine to while away the twelve hours between 3pm and 3am, then all of Monday to recover from all the enjoyment you’ll most likely have had. I think this is what they call a no-brainer.

We have two pairs of tickets for the River Rat Pack All Dayer to give away to the first two FFS readers to email [email protected]. Say we sent you, and be nice and friendly.  It’s not often a nice person gives you free tickets to a lovely gig.
