Tough night for London gig-goers tonight. Sonic Masala perennial favourites Liars play Heaven (where SM saw a blistering Deerhunter gig in May - I think its primed to be usurped here...), bringing the brilliance of their dangerous live performances and their unique, sinister back catalogue with them. Riding high after their amazing Sisterworld LP, Liars have taken no prisoners, and this promises to be no different.
But then there is Upset The Rhythm, who continue to rumble forward with their gargantuan gig list. Tonight they host Jack Tatum AKA Wild Nothing, whose Gemini release was a highlight amongst the glut of bedroom lo fi pop meanderings that have permeated the airspace this year, and he followed it up with great little EPs Evertide and Golden Haze. Ably supported by great Mancunian band Mazes (who also support Titus Andronicus in a couploe weeks' time!) and Exeter's New Years Evil (we talked about their split 7" release on Art Is Hard Records here), this promises to be a stellar all round show at Cargo. There's lots of tix left for this one on the door too, so if you cant get your hands on a Sisterworld golden ticket, you can trundle in there.
