Kick Out The Jams brought their indie night back to South-East London for the second time. A sister to their established night in Camden, they’d scoured the British Isles to bring together a selection of up and coming talent at The Amersham Arms.
Over from Ireland, opener Sean OB and his band play an anthemic brand of indie rock.
He’s followed by Doncaster quintet Children of the State, whose set mixes up 70s glam rock, electro and towards the end some gorgeous retro guitar pop strumming.
My personal highlight of comes in the middle of tonight’s five band sandwich in the form of Mancunian garage rockers The C33s, whose party punk rumble gets the dance floor shaking.
Tonight’s only Londoners are up next as Mess share their hard rock influenced sound.
Closing tonight’s proceedings, sibling duo Sons bring their heavy riffing garage grunge tunes up the A23 from Brighton.
