Alt-JThe terrific Alt-J, the electro-indie band from Leeds, perform an intimate gig at The Garage as part of War Child BRITs Week, a series of charity gigs in the run up to the BRIT Awards. Tickets, which will be hard to come, are allocated by prize draw. You enter by making a £5 donation at www.britsweekwarchild.co.uk and to maximise the chance of winning, fans can enter as many times as they like. There will also be a limited number of tickets available to buy exclusively to O2 customers via PriorityTickets from 9am Wednesday 17th January. The band, a threesome of keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton, singer and guitarist Joe Newman, and drummer Thom Green, first burst onto the music scene with its Mercury Prize winning debut record, An Awesome Wave, and has been making waves ever since.

About The Garage

This gritty music venue in Islington is everything a music venue should be, with a low ceiling, great sound system, about six inches separating the band from the mosh pit, and a music policy that takes in all the best established and up-and-coming bands in the country. More about The Garage
