As regular readers of Gigwise will be aware, we’re big fans of the Dutch lo-fi psych band Lewsberg – and we’re inviting you to see them for free.

The Rotterdam quartet will bring their Velvet Underground-inspired brand of rock’n’roll to the George Tavern in Shadwell, east London, this Wednesday evening (2 May). And we’re also pleased to announce that The Voyeurs and Jamie Lee have been added to the bill.

Named after and inspired by Dutch author Robert Loesberg, the band have making waves since the release of The Drowner EP and ‘Non-Fiction Writer’ single in 2017. Their self-titled debut album, described here as "sexy, pervy and full of smut" came out on 13 April and this will be your chance to hear it live.

Writing about Lewsberg in Gigwise, editor Cai Trefor said: “With their provocative stage antics and mesmerising songwriting, stumbling across this band – who are definitely set to blow the UK away when they land in May – has been a real joy.”

He continued: “It’s reinvigorated our sense that over in Rotterdam something is stirring, and something truly good is about to blossom. Those people who need good live and recorded music and like some of the staples of rock 'n' roll appropriated brilliantly will love this band. Lewsberg are truly Ones To Watch.”

Elsewhere, The Voyeurs will be playing a selection of old songs and new, some of which may or may not appear on their long-awaited new album. It’s been nearly four years since the release of the band’s second album, Rhubarn Rhubarb, so it’s fair to say that anticipation is running high.

Rounding of the bill is London-based poet Jamie Lee, whose work attempts to inhabit and explore new space both internally and geographically.

And it’s yours for free. Doors open at 8pm so come and check ‘em and say ‘hello’. We’ll see you down the front!
