Across the water in London, Rough Trade East will have performances from 11am with the line-up so far confirmed as :

Chilly Gonzales (piano recital with added secret surprises) - 11.00 am
Gaggle - 1pm
Wild Beasts - 3pm
The Soundtrack Of Our Lives - 5.30pm


  1. Any word if Plugd are doing anything. Not a squeak of RSD11 at

  2. Not aware of anything yet but will see what I can find out. To be honest I say they are under enough pressure simply getting the new shop ready to open this weekend. Just having the place open in a shiney, new premises will be good enough for me :)

  3. Toby Kaar is playing a live set and a few others are djing so there should be a good enough vibe down around the place.
