Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers w/Bang Bang Burlesque 

One of the best-named bands in town launches an interesting seven-week stand at the Elephant & Castle tonight. Caplan and crew---“layered, complex melodies, gruff and powerful vocals, good old rock ’n’ roll mixed with flavours of Eastern Europe,” he says of the music---will play with a special guest each week, an impressive variety including up-and-comers like Crissi Cochrane and Kim Wempe, and vets like Jay Smith, Dave Marsh and Paul Cram. In June, the series will be capped off with a recording session at The Sonic Temple.

  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
