When: Sunday 9th October
Where: Hackney Empire
Costs: £18 + booking fee LAST FEW TICKETS!
Finally, Hackney Empire (and Hackney in general) gets a gig and a venue juuuust right. Not a loud four piece set up with electric guitars and stupid a-symmetrical hair, but something simpering, quiet and thoughtful and above all, beautiful and beardy.
Iron and Wine (Sam Beam) play the Empire following the release of his fourth studio album (it’s been three years since the last one).
Iron and Wine will show their wares at Mare Street’s famous landmark, The Hackney Empire on October 9th 2011. You can get tickets in advance from the website for £18. http://www.hackneyempire.co.uk/2346/shows/iron-wine.html
In the meantime, check out his beautiful acoustic folky tunes. Although, recently, he’s got a band and has beefed up the minimal aural vision of the past. This should be a sweetly emotional gig (is it wrong to use the word ‘emotional’?).
