Let's Whisper+Electrophonvintage+Allo Darlin' - London 17/7

Post by crystalball » Fri Jul 11, 2008 11:43 am

This is a night organised by our friends at Weepop! so I thought I'd copy their newsletter. I can't wait to see Let's Whisper.

http://www.weepop.net" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

We're putting on a gig next Thursday, July 17th, to celebrate the fact that Let's whisper is actually gonna be in the UK for their EP release.

Let's whisper is Dana Kaplan and Colin Clary, both of whom you might have heard of from their solo projects and their other band "The smittens". They play the sweetest, catchiest pop songs, which you can check out here - http://www.myspace.com/letswhispermusic" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Also playing that evening:

Allo, Darlin (The Darlings)
Sweet ukulele girl pop!!!!! Allo, Darlin is Elizabeth Darling's new moniker, who had to change the band's name after a a spooky email from another band called The Darlings.

Electrophonvintage
Dreamy beautiful songs influenced by the Go Betweens, the Hidden cameras and french 60's pop.

It is all happening at the Miller - 96 Snowfields Road, about 5 minutes walk from London Bridge station.

Advance tickets are now available on wegottickets - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/32563" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'll be there. Colin Clary!

It's been ages since I've seen Electrophonvintage, I'm still waiting for that album.

I be there! I can't believe we fly over in less than a week! Please do say hi - I'm looking forward to meeting some new friends!

This is our only official Let's Whisper gig while we're over, but Dana may play some songs with me the next night in Oxford, and I suppose we may be persuaded to do some songs on the fly at indietracks if folks get into some kind of guitar pass-around!

I can't wait for next week! And we're thrilled to be having an ep with WeePOP!

yay!
colin
yow!
being nice IS a political act!

Let’s Whisper were AWESOME yesterday!! Sweet melodies and short stories about love, stars and roses, PERFECTION!! (they played a few Smittens songs which were really amazing).

Colin and Dana are two of the loveliest people you’ll ever meet. Colin is so sweet and friendly and he is a great storyteller. He told us some pretty funny stories about gigs in Vermont and snow mishaps and other marvelous things. It was such a pleasure talking to him. This is what I love from these little pop shows, lovely atmosphere, great pop bands and you get to know amazing people.

The Smittens will be playing lots of gigs in England and Scotalnd. So, you have no excuse! please, go and see them quickly!!

Yay, Colin!!!

I slice the surface here beside you/Lungs filled liquid yell I love you/Sound moves further underwater
Deep and dark my submarine bells groan in greens and grey/Mine would chime a thousand times/To make you feel okay..

I couldn't agree more! Oh, I wish I could have been at that show! I got a flyer for it in my Just Joans delivery from Wee Pop! yesterday and I got a little choked up thinking of a room full of so many lovely people.

Delighted y'all had a good show!

It was a brilliant gig in what's turning out to be (for me at least) a year of fantastic live music... and there's another two shows next week, then Indietracks, then Ballboy / Smittens / Pocketbooks in London, Hidden Cameras in August...
