My Live music choices:
Tue 22 Feb. The Bravery – Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, London.
Art-rockers from New York fronted by the aggressively sexy Sam Endicott. The American hipsters are profoundly influenced by the New Wave movement of the early eighties and became a cult music fan’s favourite when The Killers were enjoying their purple patch in 2005.
Wed 23 Feb. Cold War Kids – Koko,Camden.
American college rock band from Long Beach, California with a soulful rythmn section and lung fuelled vocals. They have already established themselves a cult fan base and their biggest hits to date are ‘Hospital Beds’ and ‘Hang Me Up To Dry’.
Wed 23 Feb. Peter Bjorn and John – The Lexington, Islington.
The Swedish trio return with pop and rock classics-to-be.
Sun 27 Feb. PJ Harvey – Troxy, Kings Cross.
Singer-songwriter from Dorset is adored on both sides of the Atlantic for her musical artistry and dirty romantic nihilism.
