Get to the Albany...

A great summer's night entertainment coming up at the Albany next week. Maybe I just haven't been getting out enough but it did feel as if New X/Detpford was at risk of losing its edge a bit as incubator of great new music. But judging by this the next wave is coming through - so get down there and then you will be able to say, like those of us lucky enough to be in the Paradise Bar four or five years ago, that you saw x, y, z when they were still playing in small venues in the area.

On Thursday June 18th 2009 at the Albany in Deptford (Douglas Way SE8), OOXXOO and the Albany present...

The Invisible : Fresh from a crazy six months supporting Hot Chip, the Doves and Foals, the Invisible are some of the most talented musicians to come out of South East London in the past few years. They are also some ofthe most well liked and most respected, it is a real pleasure to havethem headline and showcase their work.

Alexis Taylor [Hot Chip] DJ Set: Alexis is taking a well-earned break from finishing the recording of the new Hot Chip album to come down to Deptford and play his selection of the best dance music around.

I won't be able to make it along, but I've seen Monade before and they're really good.
