Back in the depths of last year’s lockdowns we co-promoted some (rather excellent if we do say so ourselves) live-streamed gigs with ace London promoters 1-2-3-4, and we’re delighted to hear that with restrictions easing and venues opening up for socially distanced events, they’re hitting the road with a mind-bendingly fantastic rotating line-up of excellent new music, including Joyzine faves Nuha Ruby Ra, Peeping Drexels, PVA, Dan Lyons, Muck Spreader and more.
As the tour titel, NSEW, suggests they’ll not just be travelling the length and breadth of their home town of London, but also venturing out around the country, kicking off at Camden’s Powerhaus on 3rd June, and making their way through Manchester, Stoke, New Cross, Brighton, Hastings, Dalston, Ramsgate, Margate and Bristol before rounding things off in Notting Hill on 25th June. Full details of each show can be found at the bottom of this article. Tickets are available now via Dice, at £6 per show.
To whet your appetite for the socially distanced chaos that will doubtless unfold over the course of the month, 1-2-3-4 have put together a Spotify playlist of the bands that will be hitting the road with them:
