Thursday 19th May 2011 saw ‘Stag and Dagger’ a one night music festival return to Shoreditch venues with a range of different music acts.
The gorgeous CocknBullKid played CAMP on city road, treating audiences to the new sound of her second album ‘Adulthood’ out today. Her poised effortless stage presence was enchanting.
With Stag and Dagger’s twin sister festival, Glasgow’s SERIOUS line up made the London goers a little jealous. Missing out on Yuck, Warpaint, Ed Sheeran, Bo Ningen meant high stakes for ‘Toro Y Moi’s show. No disappointment as his lo-fi electro set was better than anticipated.
Our Mountain brought their dramatic, ethereal presence to Underbelly, with Abbey Lee Kershaw playing the drums with a chain (yes an actual industrial chain) whilst fellow band member Matthew Hutchinson provided vocals and guitar.
A place to Bury Strangers pulled in an impressive crowd, heavy guiter sounds provided a nice of pace, from the electro atmosphere.
Stag and Dagger festival is proving to be one of London’s most accessible festivals to catch new musical talent on early an summer evening.
