Glasswerk band Red Eye Banquet are set to play their biggest gig to date this coming Friday June 30th, at Camden’s prestigious Koko venue.
This is the first of three consecutive high-profile weekend gigs – on Saturday July 8th they headline Blissfields Festival alongside The Mystery Jets, then on Friday July 14th they play the Camden Barfly
Their gig at Koko is part of London Calling – a high profile music convention analysing the future of the music business, which also includes 70 Live acts and DJs across 5 days & nights at London’s key venues. The fact that the gig merges into the immensely popular Club NME night only adds to the significance of the occasion. However, the band are expecting such a large contingent of followers that it will be more Club REB than NME!
It certainly is an impressive line-up:
8.40pm Red Eye Banquet
9.20pm Lazy Habits
10pm Dustins Bar Mitzvah
