Wales Uber Alles 09

If you happen to be in that there London on Feb 27/28 do investigate Wales Uber Alles. This pre-St David's Day mini-festival will feature some of the cream of contemporary Welsh musical talent. Which, right now, is pretty damn creamy.

On Friday 27, at the delightfully arty ICA, you can sample the sumptuous fayre of Derwyddon Dr Gonzo, Sibrydion, Richard James, Sweet Baboo, Truckers of Husk and Colorama.

The following evening over at The Lexington, Pentonville Rd, the line-up will be just as tasty: Threatmantics, the Joy Formidable (how good is Cradle btw?), Cate le Bon, Spencer McGarry Season, Fredrick Stanley Star and Silver Gospel Runners.

Weekend tickets for both nights are available from the ICA at a staggering £11 (eleven pounds). That's cheaper than a pint of beer in the West End. Get stuck in.
