Standard Fare!

Cor, this news stuff is coming Thick And Fast lately, eh? Today’s newbie is confirmation of a gig with the lovely Standard Fare headlining. It’s way off in January but tickets will be on sale soon anyway.

Support will come from our favourite Brighton bunch of ragamuffins Tyrannosaurus Dead, who anyone who’s been on this site before will know already. It’s all very exciting.

If you don’t know Standard Fare, they’re a great fun indie-pop bunch and have been doing really well over the past year or so, playing festivals such as Latitude, Indietracks, In the City and SWN and have gone on two US tours, including playing at SXSW in Austin, TX.

Additionally their single ‘Philadelphia’ topped the Dandelion Radio Festive Fifty vote for 2010. I was going to post the great video they made for it on here now but for some reason it’s not viewable in this country? Sounds wrong to me as I’ve definitely watched it before (and didn’t go somewhere else to do it) but never mind – here’s a clip of them performing it at SXSW last March:

In case you’ve somehow missed Tyrannosaurus Dead, you can have a listen to their debut EP (due out on Cupboard Music in October) right below here! Good, eh?

But yeah, as they say, until ‘then’. It’s gonna be good.
