Shortlist Gala: After Party Raindance Film Festival

An after party for the ages

The Raindance Film Festival ShortList Gala after party follows the world premiere screening of 'Kicking Off' – a British cult classic in the making, having been compared to 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’. The evening will include a live special guest performance from Lois & The Love. Behind their disarmingly slick exterior, Lois & The Love devote themselves to a unique crossbreed of synth-shot grunge and razor sharp pop. The London four-piece pack the seditious punch of Atari Teenage Riot, then cradle your bleeding ears with the innate pop sensibility of Florence and The Machine. Their indelible, infectious tunes float nonchalantly over a rhythm section pumping solid, synth-stained grooves, à la early Yeah Yeah Yeahs or The Gossip. Adding to the US associations, singer and lyricist Lois Winstone is front-centre, captivating attention with something like the stature of Debbie Harry in Blondie. In method and style however, the North Londoners echo the eccentric, irreverent pop heritage of the UK. Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
