Fortuna POP! host an all-day music spectacular as part of Bad Vibrations’ Label Mates III festival - ten consecutive days of music, beer, and vinyl at London’s coolest venue The Shacklewell Arms. Taking place on Saturday 7 March, it features eight of Fortuna POP!’s finest acts:

Comet Gain
Withered Hand (solo)
Tigercats
Simon Love & A Little Orchestra
Evans The Death
Darren Hayman
Pete Astor
Bill Botting (of Allo Darlin’)

plus DJs.

Doors are at 3pm and venue details are:

The Shacklewell Arms
71 Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, London E8 2EB
Transport: Dalston Kingsland Overground Station / Rectory Road Train / Buses 488, 236, 149, 76
Tel : 0207 249 0810

Tickets cost £11.50 in advance from We Got Tickets or £13 on the door. Tickets are here

Add in decent beer and some of the best pub grub in East London and it’s a date for the diaries. And here’s what El Presidente says about his stable:

Headlining are the legendary indie-psych band Comet Gain, with critically-acclaimed Edinburgh folk-rocker Withered Hand playing solo, and the kings (and queen) of indie-dance Tigercats in close support. Ex-The Loves main man Simon Love re-invents himself with the backing of A Little Orchestra, young whippersnappers Evans The Death bring their scuzzy pop to proceedings, and the inimitable and ever-evolving Darren Hayman does whatever the hell he likes. The venerable Pete Astor of The Loft and The Weather Prophets continues his recent live resurgence, while Bill Botting of Allo Darlin’ opens up proceedings.
