Harvey Williams spectacular
Edwyn played an acoustic gig, assisted by Roddy Frame, last night at the Social. Harvey Williams, who took the photo, said it was “a real honour to be there. Edwyn is looking & sounding better every time I see him. Also: it's strange how indie pop is probably the least cool musical genre ever, yet there I was in a room full of meedja types punching the air & whooping it up to Falling & Laughing. A faith restorer, really; even more so than a traditional Edwyn show.”
Harvey, along with The Lodger, Strange Idols, Pocketbooks and many more, will be playing at an Edwyn Collins tribute night at the Social next Monday, 16 June, each covering an Edwyn or Orange Juice song.
If that’s not enough Harvey action for you – and why should it be? – Harvey will be DJing at the Hangover Lounge this Sunday afternoon, 15 June, at the Salmon + Compass in Angel.
