28/6/2013 The Dedwardians & Purson @ Some Weird Sin
Friday night finds me back at Some Weird Sin @ Buffalo Bar in Islington. I'm getting to like this club - apart from the bar. Now if only they would stock bottles of something I actually want to drink like Newcastle Brown or Old Speckled Hen then I wouldn't have to keep sneaking out to the Weatherspoons next door. ;-)
They always have at least two bands on and it's dead cheap to get in - the crowd are a cool mixture of everything from Goths to indie and alt-rock fans and punks - always a nice atmosphere.
I saw the Dedwardians recently at the Camden Rocks festival (see earlier blog) but tonight it's better seeing them in their more natural habitat of a small club - after dark.
Next up we have a band who are new to me, but certainly one of the more interesting acts I've seen recently.
Purson. They dish out an intriguing mixture of hippy tinged alt/Goth rock - describing themselves as Baroque 'n' Roll! Yes really. Although you can't see them all 'cos there wasn't much room for taking pictures in this full venue, there are about five people in the band.
