May/June gigs and Indietracks festival

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to let you know a couple of shows over the next couple of months, and to let you know about this year’s Indietracks festival in July.

Saturday 30 May
Pocketbooks + The Good Gods! + The Noughts and Crosses Band
The Wilmington Arms, 69 Rosebery Avenue , London EC1R 4RL
Nearest tube: Angel or Farringdon
Doors 8pm - Tickets £6

We think this will be the 50th Pocketbooks show, so we hope you’ll join us to celebrate the occasion. It will also be a kind-of launch for our single and album, and it will be a ‘welcome home’ gig for Dan and Emma , who will be arriving straight off the plane from their holiday in the States.

If you’d like to come along for a cheaper price of £5, please email your name (or as many names as you like!) to pocketbooks@gmail.com

Tuesday 9 June
The Pains of Being Pure At Heart + Trailer Trash Tracys + Pocketbooks

Madame Jo Jo’s, 8-10 Brewer Street , London W1F 0SE
Tickets are sold out, but a limited number will be available on the night.

We’re very excited to be playing with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart again. The atmosphere at their Lexington gig last week was electric and they sounded amazing.

Friday 24 July to Sunday 26 July
Indietracks Festival

This year’s Indietracks festival will be headlined by Camera Obscura, Emmy The reat, Au Revoir Simone and another headliner to be announced shortly.. The festival tkes place on a 1950s steam railway in the Derbyshire countryside, and festival-goer can ride the steam trains, visit the farm and watch bands playing on the outdoor stage, in a locomotive shed, in a church and on the trains themselves!

Elefant Records are curating one of the stages this year to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Other bands playing include Lucky Soul, La Casa Azul, BMX Bandits, Butcher Boy, The School, The Frank and Walters , The Smittens, Cats on Fire, Rose Elinor Dougall and ourselves!

Last year’s festival was a wonderful experience and we’re really excited about this year’s line-up. There’s more information at www.indietracks.co.uk


Thanks very much to everyone who’s picked up our album so far and also to everyone who’s come to see us play recently.

Hope to see you at one of the shows!
Andy, Dan, Emma, Ian and Jonny x
