Once again indie club night, This Feeling, does not disappoint. Gigslutz is no stranger to having a stomp around the dark corners of the various London venues playing host to This Feeling and tonight is no different as we take the trip to Camden Town tonight and The Purple Turtle is the venue.
This is the first time I’ve had the pleasure of attending this venue and as my first sentence reveals, I was not disappointed. The club night is no stranger to breaking new bands and tonight’s line up is one of mouth watering stature.
All the bands on the show do their very best to rile the crowd up and things kick off with The Repeat Offenders. This is a band who has enjoyed a strong start to 2014 with various gigs and supporters coming thick and fast. One to watch out for this year as they recently confirm a support slot for The Rifles on their UK tour. They smash and assault their way their way through their catalogue debuting songs on fresh ears and even find time to squeeze in an Oasis cover which pulls smiles from the crowd. An intriguing band with a bright future.
Next up is local boys The Koo, who haven’t had far to come as Camden boys themselves. They whizz through their energetic and charismatic performance bringing a baggy vibe with a hip hop twist and even include a bit of crowd participation for good measure. They’re impossible to miss and with a fixating glare you can’t stop watching as they cover every inch of the stage and the dance floor. Tonight’s headliners are Busted Shuffle who have enjoyed support from various sources including uncut magazine. They top off what has otherwise been a night of epic proportions and portions.
This really is a night that any fan of fun, frolics and good music must attend. Since moving to London this has become a staple in the monthly calendar and not many people will disagree given then sort of company the night seems to attract.
