London-based Americana and mature pop act Proudfoot are to play an intimate semi-acoustic show in East London next month.

The band, who released their second album Flower Of London to some acclaim last autumn, play the Railway Tavern, St Jude Street, Dalston on Thursday 1 June.

The band is the brainchild of filmmaker and songwriter Michael Proudfoot, one-time frontman of 90s Brit honky-tonk band The Highbury Hotdogs, together with guitarist Duncan Kerr of legendary Stiff Records pub rockers Plummet Airlines, new wave powerpoppers The Favourites. The line-up is completed by bassist Wayne Worrell and drummer Joe Malone. Expect flavours of good-time 60s country, laced with the influence of late-70s new wave songwriters like Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello and Difford & Tilbrook.

Support comes from North Yorkshire-via-Brentford songwriter Phil Martin. An original member of The Shanakies (Blur's support band of choice on their Parklife tour), multi-instrumentalist Phil has also served time with The Men They Couldn't Hang, Vic Godard & The Subway Sect and The Bitter Springs. He's currently preparing the follow-up to 2013's Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, which legendary music journalist Geoff Barton, writing in Classic Rock magazine, compared very favourably to Kevin Ayers.

Music starts 8.30pm. Admission is FREE.
