Newly signed to Moshi Moshi, Brooklyn's The Drums played their first London show last night at The Flowerpot in Kentish Town. The Flowerpot is a cool little venue - they host a band every night at 9pm and it's free. The setup is well considered with lots of sofa space, well-priced drinks and most importantly, a solid PA. A recent review in the Guardian describes the venue as 'a minty-green, one-room pub at the heart of a very modern musical revolution'.
The Drums put on a lively show; influenced by Californian 60's pop, Joy Division and the Smiths, with a look straight out of a mid-period John Hughes film, they had the crowd smiling and dancing away. Definitely one to watch this year.
