Have been to the last 2 of these and always had a brilliant night, plus it's amazingly cheap, especially compared to Camden Crawl and the like but with the same great bands!

Highlights include psychotic garage punks Bad for Lazarus, super-heavy riffmeisters God Damn, melancholy folk-rock band Feldspar and epic guitar-pop act Bright Light City (who’ve supported Bastille). Also recommended are the choppy electro and fuzz-bass of Plant Plants, solo rockabilly blues guitarist JD Smith, retro alt pop act Itchy Teeth and young garage punks The Skellies. The Oxjam Islington team wll also open The Mitre pub at 130 Upper Street from Wednesday, with events every night until Sunday.
