Little Comets

1 05 2010

Southampton Joiners is a great little venue, and now, they have joined forces with Brighton’s Great Escape festival, to bring a series of gigs under the banner of the Joiners Escape festival.  Last night was the first of the shows, which once I had found someone (Andy) to go with I was really looking forward to. 

Little Comets were the headline act and I had heard some good reviews of their sets and what I had heard of their music I really liked (think of a Geordie Vampire Weekend, fronted by a chap that looks an awful lot like Jonny Borrell from Razorlight).  Anyway, I digress.

First up were a band called Drawings who were a good start to the night, secondly were the brilliantly named Mammoth! Mammoth! (not to be confused with the Aussie Rockers MAMMOTHMAMMOTH) and equally good sounding.  These had a harder edge that I prefered.

The third band on were the stupidly good and also 12 year old Blonde Louis, they have a very polished sound considering they have a collective age of under 50 (possibly).  I recommend giving them a listen.

Little Comets came on and were excellent.  I am having writing issues today so I will leave you with the video for the brilliant One Night in October.
