More exciting gig news… AFH will be playing at Secret Garden Party 2013 – as part of The Local’s ‘Sunset Sessions’ on Friday 26th July. Onstage at 6pm. Also playing are our good friends The Machine Gunners who are rather splendid. Hope to see you there!
Minitour news now… AFH will be playing 2 German shows in July 2013, both super exciting:
1. Alexander’s Festival Hall, supporting Tom Tom Club. Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Monday 8th July. This show is an honour for us to play at. I think I learned pretty much everything I know about playing guitar watching Stop Making Sense on endless repeat till the VHS wore out 😉
More details and tickets here!
2. Alexander’s Festival Hall: Thursday 11th July. German album launch party. AFH Micro-team (just two of us) will play songs from the record with support from our good friend DJ Supermarkt of the ace HowDoYouAre blog. At Smaragd Bar. FREE so come on down!
We’ve just been forwarded a nice review by a blogger who happened to visit our show during the month long Revert to Disarray gallery show by talented Greek painter Stefanos Rokos. The show was really a lovely thing to contribute to, and we wrote a song especially for one of the paintings (“Loyal to the campaign for a beautiful terrorism”, no less) which will appear on the next album.
You can read the whole thing here:
Grab your finest clip art of executives high-fiving, or cheap pomagne being excitably decanted aside the race track – the AFH album launch do is on-on-on! 3rd April 2013 in fittingly regency-ish environs of The Old Queen’s Head, Essex Road, London N1.
Doors 7.30pm. One for the diaries… we hope to see you there! x
At the lovely Ryan’s Bar, Stoke Newington Church Street. Pop, pop and more pop. Swoonsome (it says here) pop from AFH, Dansk disco stylings from Parenthesis DotDotDot and delicate folk from Helen Lawson.
Plus proper disk jockeying-for-your-attention from Alex Gold (Word mag).
That, is a night out, mes cheres… See you there! x
Good news everyone! AFH will be opening a lovely show in London’s north-west one, at Specks in the Sky, The Monarch, Camden, 27th September. More details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/438143726235673/
A free show, we’ll be supporting the heart-meltingly lovely Melting Ice Caps, and the madcap genius that is Mikey Georgeson (sometime David Devant, Mr Solo and all round musical matador). Watch out later this week for a new song to get you into the autumnal mood too…
Hope to see you there!
Merci, gracias, thank you kindly to all who came to our lovely Daylight Session at the Union Chapel in April. Team AFH, initially held together by nothing stronger than coffee and Victoria Sponge quickly took the reins (and surely reverb gets no longer than that in a London venue?). For a special day out you can’t beat these free Saturday shows hosted by the Arctic Circle (more).
Thanks to all who came along for our Upturned launch show… In exciting news we’ll be treading some rather bigger boards at the end of the month at the delightful Daylight Sessions @ The Union Chapel in Highbury/Islington. Saturday 28th April; show starts at 12.00 and runs till 2pm and is a delightful way to kick off the weekend. More details here:
Hope to see you in the pews!
Just to say the next show, our little Upturned (but hey, in a basement) launch do is at Power Lunches and we’ve got a dream bill of musical diversions for you all… the elegantly intuitive Machine Gunners will be opening proceedings, followed by the total pop of Tim Ten Yen with supportive parallel world of musical marvels from DREAMTRAK and DJ Soft Focus on the decks.
A free CDsingle (remember them? stare at the artwork as you listen on soundcloud mes cheres…) to the first 20 arrivals too!
See you there, doors 7pm, live music starts at 8.30:
(nearest station: Dalston Kingsland / Dalston Junction)
Good news! Next AFH live show at The Betsey Trotwood, 3rd November 2011. With support from the smooth pop hooks from DJ Soft Focus and more tbc!
