The Boat Show

It’s sunny, it’s spring, so time to head down to the river. If you’d like some live music while you’re there, how about The Tamesis Dock, a converted, 1933 Dutch barge, now doubling as a bar-restaurant and a gig venue. And starting next week, there’s a whole bunch of Daily Growl-friendly shows, put on by ace London promoters God Don’t Like It.

Stuff coming up that I’m particularly interested in includes Liz Green, Tristram and the debut gig and album launch by The Climbers. I know I’ve gone all Willkommen Collective on your asses lately, but it’s worth bigging up this one a little, as it’s another project featuring the ubiquitous Nick Hemming. Here though, him and Christian from The Leisure Society are performing the songs of the band’s ostensible leader Tim West. And very good they are too, or at least the two I’ve heard. The album is out on 31 May on Wilkommen records so we can judge for ourselves. Or head down the the riverbak between Lambeth and Vauxhall bridges and find out in person.
