DEAFEN COUNTY'S TOP TEN GIGS OF 2013 - LONDON
Naming your favourite gig is arguably more difficult than naming your favourite album or song. A gig doesn’t grow on you with every listen, it’s based on one performance and it can be better/worse due to things you can’t control – crowd, venue, mood etc.
We’ve tried our best to wrap up what 2013 had to offer, so here it is – Deafen County’s Top Ten Performances of 2013:
I AM KLOOT – Barbican (19.02.13)
BALMORHEA – Hoxton Bar & Grill (01.04.13)
THE GROWLERS – Shacklewell Arms (24.04.13)
MILES KANE – T in the Park (13.07.13)
HANNI EL KHATIB – Sebright Arms (27.07.13)
DRENGE – In The Woods Festival (31.08.13)
FUZZ – The Dome (27.09.13)
MAC DEMARCO – Scala (28.10.13)
THE PRETTY THINGS – Half Moon Putney (08.11.13)
JONATHAN WILSON – Islington Assembly Hall (04.12.13)
Looking back it’s hard to figure out which night of live music was the actual winner. End of day, there doesn’t really need to be one. Just take this list – if you haven’t heard any of the artists, listen. If you haven’t seen any of the artists, see them. Here’s to another year of musical madness in 2014, it’s going to be a big one.
