Head to Soho for Notes from Café
Hayes FM’s Hughie Dixon with highlights from the live band scene
NADIA, Beverly and Harriet, those lively, crazy ladies from Hayes – aka The Tuts – have announced their autumn tour dates, which include two appearances in Camden (see panel, right). Now, if you didn’t turn straight to this page after picking up your Gazette this week, you may have missed the chance to see Hillingdon’s indie-punk quintet So Low in Soho – sorry about that. But if it’s still Wednesday afternoon, you’re in with a chance.
Sounding in parts like a grunged-up Joy Division or a darker, heavier and more masculine version of Siouxsie and the Banshees, So Low are playing a set from their soon-to-be-released EP, entitled Notes From a Café, at the rather inappropriately named – for this band at least – Jazz After Dark in Greek Street, Soho.
It’s just £5 on the door and they’re due on at 9pm. It’s strictly over-18s, so I’d better take my ID, and you should too. The closest Tube station is Tottenham Court Road.
