Another month has flown by and it’s time to head north of Hoxton Square again to The Macbeth for the mighty Twisted Licks monthly residency. This months edition featuring the helium sluiced stylings of My Toys Like Me.

It’s fucking freezing on the roof patio of the Macbeth as the February night begins to creep in across east London. Josh Weller is in overdrive, lovingly crafting rolled up cigarettes and holding court on his plans for the upcoming year, doing his best impression of the end product of a lustful tryst between Woody Allen, Bob Dylan and Yahoo Serious. Cutting a singular figure in shrink-wrapped, science club chic, topped off with serious glasses and far more serious hair, Josh is here tonight as part of the cooler than fuck Twisted Licks nights series that holds residence at the Macbeth. He’s been paired with one man electrofolk orchestra and Moshi Moshi star, James Yuill. As Josh holds court James is firing through soundcheck providing snippets of the blissful house laden electro folk that will have an overflowing Macbeth reverberating in exquisite bliss come midnight.

East London’s Deathray Trebuchay displayed themselves as grandmasters of this transportational wizardry whilst whipping up a rabid frenzy from the stage of the Borderline.
