Rock'n'Roll's latest and greatest band, ARCHIE AND THE BUNKERS, finish up their European tour at the Dirty Water Club. This is not one to be missed.
London's brilliant gutter punk reprobates, purveyors of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll via psychotic lo-fi garage-rock'n'roll noise, The Cavemen (NZ) will make their first ever dive into the Dirty Water.
They've been together - musically, at least - for barely five months, but SONS have already started to gain a healthy following. And while there may just be two of them, in a similar vein to Royal Blood, their sound is loud and raw, mixing together a ferocious cocktail of punk and grungy rock'n'roll.
This is London's gig of the year. Do not miss it, and bring all your friends so you can talk about it together for the rest of your lives.
The wildest party in the UK is back for its third year, organised by the folks who put on the Weirdsville club night. Worth going to if only for the first ever UK appearance by Dirty Water Records' teen sensations Archie & the Bunkers. Click on the link for full list of bands.
With a sound reminiscent of Gram Parsons-era Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Flying Burrito Brothers, but with a harder edge, they anticipated the alternative country music of the 1990s by a decade. The group disbanded in 1987 but are reforming for the release of a box set of CDs on Cherry Red.
Supported by The Baron Four, this night sees the return to the London stage by the Kaisers for the first time since 2001. The only UK beat group worth talking about during the late 1990s and early 2000s, they played the Dirty Water Club a number of times and always went down a storm.
