Since playing their first gig at London’s Shacklewell Arms, Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs have had a hell of a good year. With their debut album complete, they are bringing ‘Clarietta’ to one of their favourite venues.
Last week they celebrated the release of their critically acclaimed debut with a Rough Trade in-store gig, followed by a sold out launch party at Dalston’s Jazz Quarters.
The band are now returning to play London’s Shacklewell Arms this coming Thursday (June 6th) as part of JD Roots and NME’s search for Britain’s Best Small Venue.
Charlie is excited to make the return, he says: “We played there in February last year supporting TOY so it’s going to be really good to go back. The Shacklewell Arms is one of my favourite venues too, it’s always good for watching small bands.”
The NME campaign runs in association with Jack Daniels JD Roots, supporting small venues across the UK. Charlie spoke exclusively to NME: “Without small venues, my band would be nowhere because we’d have no live experience. Being good live is important as that’s where you learn the ropes. Small venues are completely essential.”
You can win tickets to the show via NME.com, support comes from Loom.
Having recently lifted their third single “Be Glamorous” from “Clarietta”, keyboardist Ross Kristian has made a colourful new video to accompany the B-side, “It’s My Wish”. The footage is taken from their performance at Amsterdam’s London Calling festival, Enjoy!
