STAG & DAGGER LDN [&dagger]

In the series of stories from the UK.. Stag & Dagger is an interesting annual music festival arranged in London and Glasgow where one ticket/wristband gives access to a selection of modern music in different venues. Stag&Dagger London took place in the Hoxton/Shoreditch area and it was a good way to explore that part of the city.

As we were kinda late with getting the tickets and all we only got to see two shows/venues: New Young Pony Club @ MacBeth and Star Slinger @ Queen of Hoxton.

MacBeth seemed like an average (but rather expensive pub) that was well overcrowded for the NYPC show..

 ..which was decent. Not MAD DECENT though - saw them in Sonar2010 and it was way better back then for some reason.

The Queen of Hoxton had a really cool vintage arcade machine - beats the lame pinball machine at tavastia 6-1.

I first ran into Star Slinger via his great remix on Childish Gambino - Freaks & Geeks. His talent in finding new sides to highly bloggable (can u even say that) music doesn't end there. Freaks&Geeks wasn't played as UK people don't really know about Childish so the highlight of the set was this:


Here's some more Stag n Dagger (if you write &_dagger u get † lol) related tunes:
