Gigs of the Week: The We Can Do It Summer Weekender + More Shows for You in London This Week

There are a host of fantastic shows worthy of your attention around the capital this week, but we’ve gone for the We Can Do It Summer Weekender at The Lock Tavern on Saturday as our pick of the bunch.

Featuring twelve bands over two days absolutely free at one of our favourite small venues (whose future is the subject of speculation following a recent change of owner), and with Joyzine favourites DOLLS and Foreign Poetry (fresh from their Primavera adventures which you can read about here), you’d be hard pressed to find a better way to spend two thirds of your long weekend.

Saturday 25th August: Valeras, DOLLS, Wyldest, Lara Smiles, Junodef + Foreign Poetry
