Brixton’s indie-pop night How Does It Feel To Be Loved hosts a Magnetic Fields special at Peckham’s Montague Arms tonight

There’s a treat in store for south London’s indie revellers this evening as Brixton’s long-running indie-pop night How Does It Feel To Be Loved returns to The Montague Arms in Peckham for a one-off night celebrating the music of Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields.

HDIF’s head honcho Ian Watson told us “The band’s new album, 50 Song Memoir is released in March – so we’ll be playing highlights from the new record alongside classics from the Magnetic Fields songbook.”

As well as tracks by the Magnetic Fields, Saturday night fun-seekers can expect to hear a splendid blend of Soul and Indie with sing-a-long classics from the likes of  The Smiths, The Supremes,  Belle & Sebastian, Dusty Springfield,  Velvet Underground, Dexys Midnight Runners and The Four Tops.

Guest DJ Bill Botting of Allo Darlin’ and Bill Botting And The Two Drink Minimums joins Ian Watson on wheels of steel.  A packed dance floor and a friendly crowd is guaranteed in one of Peckham’s greatest old pubs.

How Does It Feel To Be Loved takes place this evening (Saturday March 4th) at The Montague Arms, 289 Queen’s Road, Peckham SE15 2PA (9pm-1.30am) It’s £4 for members and £6 for non-members (membership is free). Register at
