Win: Tickets to see Gang Of Four in London on Monday

By on Thursday, 20th August 2009 at 11:22 am

Gang of Four (cover)Gang of Four have already proven themselves to be one of the most important bands of the past 30 years, being pivotal influences for generations of bands such as Bloc Party, Foals, Maximo Park, Franz Ferdinand and many, many more. Now they’ve reformed, including the core original duo of Jon King and Andy Gill, and to celebrate they’re playing a super special show next Monday (24th August) at a secret venue in central London – and we have a pair of tickets for one lucky person to win.

And if getting some tickets wasn’t enough, you’ll also be provided with a copy of the setlist and photos from the evening enabling you to send over a quick review to be published on Tuesday or Wednesday here at to be read by about 18,000 people. Sounds like something you’re interested in? Enter your name and email address in the form below and we’ll pick one person at random from all entrants at 11pm on Sunday evening, sending you details of where the gig is and all the other details you need on Monday morning.

The venue is a miniscule one compared to the bigger venues they’ll be playing in November (including the likes of the Forum in London), so you’ll be right up close and personal.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter your details in the form below if you’re able to make the show, and we’ll be in touch if you win!

This competition is now closed. We’re getting in touch with the winner.

The obligitory small print:

  • The prize is two tickets to see Gang of Four at the a secret venue in London. No transport or other extras are included, unfortunately.
  • Before entering please ensure that you are free and able to get to London for Monday night (24th August).
  • Please note that this competition is run by Gang of Four’s people, not TGTF.
  • Competition closes this Sunday, 23rd August 11pm.

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.
