• Elephant Gun


Show: Elephant Gun “turn their raucous music into a contact sport, squeezing all eight of their members onto the tiniest of stages, and their busy but romantic Gypsy folk-rock jams hit every point between Gogol Bordello and Fairport Convention, even nodding to Bright Eyes with flashes of poignance that never last long enough for anybody to wallow in,” writes Monica Kendrick.
