Following the success of last Friday's end-of-summer (although it's bloody blazing outside right now) bash at London's Monto Water Rats - thanks to all who packed the place out for stunning sets from Russian Circles, Eugene McGuinness, Dartz!, Youthmovies and I Was A Cub Scout - DiS is pleased to announce we're back at the very same venue later this month for something a little quieter, but no less brilliant.
On September 18, Berlin/London-based Australians Devastations play a one-off date at the aforementioned Gray's Inn Road venue, with support from the always excellent Josh T Pearson, formerly of Lift To Experience, and rising capital city songwriter Jack Savoretti. The Tuesday night show also features DiS DJs. Hello!
Tickets for the show are priced at £9.50 and are available from Ticketweb - click here to buy some. Devastations release their new album, Yes, U, via Beggars on September 17. They also play the End of the Road festival on the weekend of September 14-16. More information on said three-dayer can be found here.
