Higher Ground Jam Session!
Tue 30 Apr
Higher Ground is a new free expression jam session at Paper Dress Vintage! It’s an open space to improvise, create and collaborate, and a new community in East London. Musicians – bring your instruments, chat to a member of the team to sign up, and let’s jam! Music lovers – bring your dancing shoes and let’s dance!
£6 tickets available on Dice:
Doors at 7.45pm
Come down early to put your name on the list!
Full backline will be provided including a guitar amp and bass amp, instruments and breakables not provided. The night will kick off with a set from the house band, before opening up the jam to all that wish to play! As much as possible, we’ll be aiming for an improvised experience, rather than playing covers.

Hamish Hawk & the New Outfit
Sun 28 Apr
Hamish Hawk & the New Outfit are joined by London-based indie kids Home Creatures in celebrating the release of their new vinyl EP, ‘Laziest River’.
Limited advance tickets via DICE here!
A charismatic figure at the forefront of Scottish pop, Hamish Hawk is an Edinburgh songwriter and frontman of Hamish Hawk & the New Outfit. Deft lyricism, irresistible melodies, and an emotional range that sets him apart from his contemporaries, Hawk offers a confident live show, shapeshifting from pop songster to lilting crooner; from masterful storyteller to wild-eyed lunatic and back again. His new 8-track EP, Laziest River, showcases his lyrical maturity against a balladesque backdrop of piano, bass and drums. Hamish Hawk & the New Outfit have appeared in session for Marc Riley (BBC Radio 6 Music) and Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland), and Hawk has opened for This is the Kit, King Creosote, Idlewild and James Yorkston.
‘an engaging set of songs … a gentler soul with a direct eloquence to his music’ – The Scotsman
‘gorgeous, erudite indie-pop‘ – Nicola Meighan, BBC Radio Scotland
‘[a] glorious debut album … forces you to stick it on repeat just in case you’ve missed something’ – Jim Gellatly, The Scottish Sun
Home Creatures write songs about loss, landscape and memory. Simultaneously poignant, cathartic, and celebratory, the London-based indie band do the hardest of things, express loss in an uplifting way. Influenced by bands like Frightened Rabbit, Pinegrove and Bright Eyes, they will be releasing their debut single, A Healthy Way to Cope, in May 2019.
