Nights at Oxjam (Shoreditch and Angel)


I attended two of Oxfam’s Oxjam festivals recently, it’s always nice to do something for charity, especially when there’s music involved…win-win!

Both nights were quite different, one being DJ sets in a hot room and the other being live bands across multiple venues, there is something for everyone and there are still events planned around the country, so book your nearest gig now!

DJ sets aren’t really my thing but it was great fun, we just danced around like lunatics, yes, we were those people.

The only downside to the “pub crawl festivals” is that the bands you most want to see are playing in different pubs at or near the same time, so you end up just staying in one venue most of the time.  I managed to see three bands in total out of the 100 listed, but that might be because we went for Thai food at Rabieng inbetween!

Bad for Lazarus are worth mentioning, they were great live, real metal-pop-rock that left you wanting more.  Add to your watchlist now!

About Hayles

Living in and loving London, I like to cram in as much as possible. I have a lot of different hobbies which I start on a whim and most of the time abandon for something else! My current interests include film, TV, music, comedy, art, photography, theatre and finding new yummy food establishments. Mostly I just love to experience the many joys and wonders that London offers. I started this blog to help me remember what I've actually done at the end of each year, but now I actually really enjoy writing and sharing what I hope is funny and/or useful information.
