GIG: Little Dragon @ The Garage, London

They’re back in London! I’m talking about Sweden’s Little Dragon, and they’re gonna be playing at The Garage, 20-22 Highbury Corner, N5 1RD on Thursday 4th March. Little Dragon‘s popularity seems to grow two-fold every time they perform in London, so be quick and snap up a ticket for £12.50 from the Ticket Web site before it’s too late!

Support comes in the form of local lad Jono McCleery, who’ll be delivering his brilliant blend of jazz influenced folk, and also a bit of tune spinning from DJ John Hendicott.

Little Dragon provided one of the albums of 2009 with Machine Dreams. The album managed to combine elements of folk, jazz, electronica and pop in the most fantastic of ways. Adding a pinch of 80s electro here, and a dab of jazz there, what could have been a total mess was actually a masterpiece in contemporary music. A definite grower, it now sends shivers down my spine whenever I listen to it.
