Disappointingly, the biggest potential event of the month is so far only a rumour as far as I’m concerned. The organisers, the upmarket lifestyle magazine Monocle, haven’t yet responded to my request for further information, so at the moment I’m relying on unofficial sources and an article on the KOCCA site: Korean indie bands 3rd Line Butterfly and W&Whale may well be coming to London for a gig, possibly 7 or 8 December. Or possibly not.
