GIG - The Pipettes at Hoxton Square
A few weeks ago, my sister Abbie and I went to the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen to see the fabulous Pipettes perform. After previous albums full of polka dots and fifties fun, the new album called Earth Vs the Pipettes has more of an eighties vibe with a few disco tones.
They really are so much fun to watch and I'm always interested to see what they are wearing, especially as they make their own outfits. If you're a fan of a few retro dance moves then I'm sure you too would be a fan. Gwenno was sporting the cutest pixie crop of blonde hair along with a fabulous headband. She went for lilac pleather and matching tights. Ani, whose hair I also love, wore a swing style dress with disc detailing and shimmering fabric.
The new Pipettes single 'Stop the Music' is out now and it's been in my head ever since the gig.
The support acts were also worth a mention. The first band, Safari, had to be some of the most good-looking guys I've ever seen on a stage and the music was super catchy too. I'm looking forward to them releasing an album so I can get a better fix.
Second up was Angry Vs the Bear, a hairspray-loving band with a ballsy lead singer in sequins. The megaphone was an interesting addition to their act although I'm not sure the music was right up my street.
What was the last gig you went to?
