Dirty Pretty Things / Secret show TONIGHT

By on Tuesday, 4th September 2007 at 11:51 am

Dirty Pretty Things press shotCarl Barat’s new band Dirty Pretty Things (well, they’re not that new I guess) are set to play an intimate gig tonight.

The band will play at Highgate’s Boogaloo bar to celebrate the opening of a new photo exhibition featuring them – ‘Come Closer: Dirty Pretty Things as seen by Roger Sargent‘.

The band will be jetting off to LA after the gig to start recording their second album.

I’m unsure at the moment of how to get tickets for this gig, but assume the majority will be available on the door.
