* ALBUM Launch GIG - ST Giles Church thu 18th Aug *
Drugstore are thrilled to announce the Anatomy album launch with a gig at the beautiful St Giles in the Fields church, on thu aug 18th.
We really wanted to do it somewhere special to match our excitement at having the new record out, and the opportunity for everyone to come together and praise our crazebabyjezus and share the joy!
We're planning an evening of joyous singing, storytelling and merriment all around.
Quite a challenge setting up a gig at the church - we're hiring everything: the PA, the lights, sound engineer - but I believe it will be worth it.
Having exchanged many a pleading email with the church warden, we will be allowed to have drinks at the churchyard (but defo a 'no-no' inside the church) - so what we're planning is this:
Tickets will include a complimentary glass of wine on miss monteiro.
The evening will kick off with wine drinking at the churchyard, at 6pm.
We're asking everyone, in the true spirit of the whole Anatomy project, to bring some extra wine along (if you wish, or some lemonade, or tequila if you prefer), and share with other fans.
We'll provide the stylish plastic glasses.
The church does not allow the sale of any alcohol/so no bar, but they're happy for us to drink whatever we bring along - (bless'em).
Church doors will open at 19:30 and our hand-picked support band, SWEET SWEET LIES will do their beautiful thing.
(this is the band we stumbled upon at SecretGardenParty Fest and were quite taken by their calexico-esque/tindersticks-esque lovely melodies - we think you guys r gonna like'em too.)
Once they finish their set, there will be an INTERVAL of 1/2 hour - to allow everyone to get back out in the churchyard and refuel on vino and have a smoke.
We'll then play our set, with the usual improvised selection of old favourites and a good bunch of new songs from Anatomy.
Then, we'll all head for club/bar across the road - for post-gig drinking/flirting shenanigans.
If by 3am I'm asking the bartender to marry me(or worse...) someone kindly put me inside a cab w/ directions to Kew Gardens, thanks.
We just can't wait and really hope you can all join us.
It's gonna be an evening to remember.
