Automotion are playing this intimate London gig

Rising rock band Automotion are one of a handful of acts playing at this intimate London gig. Here’s all the details you need to catch them live.


The London-based outfit – comprised of Lennon Gallagher, Jesse Hitchman, drummer Otis Eatwell-Hurst and bassist Luke Chin-Joseph – released their third EP, Artificial Ascent, in October, which builds on the hazy atmospherics of last year’s Ecstatic Oscillations EP.

They’ll be playing the gig tomorrow night (Friday, 15 December) at Avalon Cafe Bermondsey, alongside a number of other exciting acts.

These include Baba Ali – the exuberant project of American performer and musician Baba Doherty and British guitarist Nil Balchin, who performed Later… with Jools Holland earlier this year – and psych-goth band Jesus And The Zealots.

Dream pop duo Shoefig complete the lineup for a night also supported by DJs Amodeus and Aquamarine.

The night of revelry is being hosted by Fifth Column Arts, a promoter which promises to cast a light on the sounds of the underground – and which is living up to such a billing by tomorrow night’s lineup.

When whynow caught up with Automotion just after the release of Ecstatic Oscillations, Lennon Gallagher (son of Liam), spoke of the thrill derived from the band’s gigs at Scala and much-loved Brixton venue The Windmill.

“It was a really solid night,” he said of their Scala set. “It was very cool to be on that stage. I guess the preference of performing and writing is different for each person.”

Avalon Cafe will no doubt be a far cozier affair, but still aims to pack the same degree of energy; tickets can be bought via RA by clicking the link here.
