'Harmony-rebels' gig

Former Wire intern breaks cover

Frazer King, Manchester’s rising ‘new harmony-rebels’, who count The Wire’s former intern, Jack Hardiker, among their ranks, headline a night of singer-songwriters-meet-dubstep-dons type action in East London later this month. Ironically (at least we hope so) titled Original Raggamuffins: S Manchester Badboys Meet S London Nuttas UPTOWN, the night also features Daisy & Archie, Kwake & Risk, Mr Hovis, King Solo-mon, Dark and various other utterly unknown quantities. London George Tavern, 373 Commercial Road, E1, 24 May, £6/5 NUS, £4 before 8pm.
