*** ILEGAL WEEKENDER ***

Gigs are finally back at Slim Jim's Liquor Store and we have prepared a weekend of live shows with an astonishing lineup and the special support of Ilegal Mezcal. Friday 23rd Rufus Miller Magdy

Saturday 24th The Daybreakers Dead Air

Rufus Miller is most well known for his work with his sister Misty Miller and father Dominic Miller. Whilst touring with Sting, he decided to let people know about his sound and released two albums which have been described as psychedelic folk-rock. Influences leaning on Nick Drake & thecure. He sings pained love songs. Emphasizing the light and dark.

MagdyKnown to many as the frontman of the 3-piece Rock/Grunge band ‘Cairo Son’, Magdy will be taking the stage for an intimate solo acoustic show. Performing a mixture of original material taken from his solo project, Cairo Son and his latest studio collaboration ‘Geomagnetist’. One man, one guitar, one voice!'

The Daybreakersare fast-rising, time-warping hard rockers based in East London. The band channel the frenetic and melancholic punk sounds of The Gun Club and Morphine mixing up the medicine to evoke the shades of the MC5, Captain Beefheart and Thin Lizzy. No constipated purists, The Daybreakers hug synths, sampladelica, the avant-garde and pop to their Paisley-patterned bosoms, a three-headed brave Ulysses for the 2020s. Formed by songwriter-producer Aidan Connell who had formerly performed with Gary Clark Jr and Seasick Steve as well as working with Mazzy Star from 2010-2016. The group groove like a mutha thanks to jazz savant drummer James Gullis and school-of-Stax-meets-Motown bassist Conor Cotterill, the three embodying the seeming paradox of tight but loose. Formed in early 2019 the group have been tearing it up in packed venues in the UK and Europe both in their own right and as the most supernova stars own Starship club nights.

Dead Airare South London’s newest contribution to the hard rock scene. Described by some close family & friends as ‘surprisingly not that bad…’ frontman Reuben, lead guitar Lyle and Rich on drums have been working hard on their debut album and can’t wait to share it. One not to be missed for all rock lovers out there…
