VICTORIA DALSTON 451 QUEENSBRIDGE ROAD, E1, DALSTON ----------------------------------------------------------LIGHTHOUSES / BEAU AND THE ARROWS plus ANNALECTRA / BEAUX (ELECTRONIC ACTS SELECTED BY LISTENERS AT www.mostrated.com) ADVANCE TICKETS: http://www.skiddle.com/events/11516394/ plus BEAUX (MOST RATED OCTOBER CHOICE) Beaux's music draws upon classic songwriters such as David Bowie and Kate Bush as much as it pays homage to the golden age of electro pop circa 1981. It's ostentatiously passionate and human, but there's enough tech-savvy production going on not to alienate the modern clubber or DJ. Beaux are a smart and sexy supertrooper duo destined to fill Goldfrapp's vacant Glam-Schaffel throne Beaux say: "Music we love for people who love music; for people who love and lose and love again. Influenced by Bowie, Kate Bush and drawing influence from post-punk, new-wave and electro artists, BEAUX create a hybrid of catchy tunes electro-pop-rock tunes that give you something to sing, dance and think about, breaking your heart when you do." myspace.com/beauxmyspace http://www.facebook.com/beauxlondon LIGHTHOUSES LIVE + DJ SET 11PM + ... Lighthouses have been variously described as "Bloc Party meets Justice", "Daft Punk crossed with Soulwax" "Death from Above versus Delphic"… but really they're a band with a fire in their belly and their hearts on their sleeve; more concerned with music to make people dance than following the curve, three piece electro band Lighthouses have been busily making a name for themselves with their hectic live shows and their compelling releases and remixes. Their staunch live reputation has garnered them support slots with the likes of Kavinsky, Feadz, Autokratz, South Central, Para One, Alex Metric, Teenage Bad Girl, Mason, David E Sugar, Mini Viva, Get Shakes, Midi Midis, Ignug, LA Shark and many more. They were featured on Gill Mill's "Best of Myspace" podcast and won the week's heat to be featured on NME Radio. Their remix of Chew Lips' song "Slick" was hand picked by the band as a prize winner and a number of their remixes have won honours and plaudits in competitions worldwide. In 2011 Lighthouses are furiously working away on their debut EP and booking gigs and festivals throughout the UK. www.listentolighthouses.com BEAU AND THE ARROWS Beau and the Arrows are a London-based alternative band founded by singer/songwriter Beau Carter back in 2008.

Sometimes we find we were misled, sometimes we find we were right and sometime we find we didn't know how right we were. BEAUX were firmly the latter - smart without being cold, glam without being empty - bar staff were craning their necks and spilling drinks to catch them. They energise, drive and delight a dancefloor. Can't wait to have them back." South Eats London "Theatrical art-rock-electro-pop... Brilliant." Jerry Scott, BBC Radio York "The Brother/Sister duo have poured everything into “We Can Love Each Other”; Heaven 17, John Foxx, Bowie, B52's and what could at times be Gary Numan on double speed... well executed and full of the right levels of retro-character. An impressive start." Milton Trebuchet, Manchester Music "Right up our street, fucking great!" Modern Love "BEAUX combine the energy of Bowie and the drama of mid-80's Kate Bush and yet bring both kicking and screaming in to the 21st century by creating a sound that is all their own - not to be missed!"

Seems we've uncovered a growling, prowling rock beast' THE FLY They say they're animal and I'm not gonna disagree: these Welsh newbies sound like they're rampaging though a forest having sniffed some particularlytasty prey. 1268 is a feisty beast; both natural and supernatural. ARTROCKER >>8:30-9:00<< >>COLD IN BERLIN<< AN ARTROCKER ALBUM OF THE YEAR 'Translators for our imploding society... ...with it's half our of aggressive hooks and immediacy, we need albums like 'Give Me Walls' at the moment' ARTROCKER ALBUM OF THE MONTH DECEMBER 2010 *****5 OUT 5***** 'With the energy levels cranked to maximum, it's hard not to get sucked into their dark whirlpool of noise' Mojo 'There's more than initially meets the ears here... a voice that could fell oakes at 100 meters... razor-sharp guitar wizardry... probably exactly how Courtney Love thinks Hole sound.' Q 'Cold in Berlin exude gutsy guitar riffs... and Maya's voice breathes heavy stories of volatile sexuality perfect for wrapping animalistic howls around ...demented devil dynamics' Rock Sound >>7:45-8:15<< >>CASABLANCA SUNSHINE<< Formed in 2009, Casablanca Sunshine purvey portions of sunny indie beat designed to satisfy the appetites of ears looking to move out of that moody corner they've been hanging around in. The boys wrap tales of love, lust and life on the road in melodies and harmonies.
