As the new Mumford & Sons album has smoothly proved, becoming mainstream truly can make your music worse. Or at least less bearable. Though it may well land you a rather lovely wife. This means that you are better off discovering bands before Radio 1 do, even if only for the oh-I-saw-them-when-they-played-a-pub-garden hipster points. The perfect place to do so is at Record Affair this Sunday September 23 at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston. A whole host of indie record labels with intriguing names (Sexbeat, Tough Love, Gringo, Comfortable on a Tightrope…) will gather and display their wares for you to browse, and for £6 you can hear live music from some bands that we haven’t heard of before, but we bet are really good.
