Apparently the Rakes are playing tonight at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen. A message on their forum says this...
"the Address is Hoxton square. And the venue is Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen. If yo say a password 'CASSETTE" then is just £3! other wise it's like £5 or £7 or something so i'd recommend ya do... think doors open around 8 and reckon we'll be on about 10.30."
I haven't seen the Rakes in far too long and this is quite a nice venue despite the Hoxton prices and frankly alarming hairstyles.
