THE ELECTRIC SHOES, a band variously described as indie, punk, pop, new wave, post-punk, alternative and even mod. Gigging regularly in Barcelona, the band have been going for two years now, with an evolving set list of catchy and danceable original songs mixed with hard fast covers of hits that weren't that way originally.

The 'Shoes were founded by Oliver Sutton (singer and guitarist, the bearded bloke pictured above on the left, possibly better known as head of level 10 Proficiency in IH Barcelona's English department) and Carolyn Edwards (drummer, the loon in the middle, also renowned head of IH Barcelona's level 8 CAE preparation course).

2007 has seen their first radio interview, their first review in a national publication and their first inclusion on a compilation CD. Catch them live if you can – they're unprecedented, relentless and fun.

For their next gig, the 'Shoes will be at the Sala Magic, Pg. Picasso (Parque de Ciutadella) on Saturday June 16 at 22:00.

  1. I've never seen the shoes before, but I'll try to be there at Magic for the next gig now that I've downloaded their tunes from their website.
    It's a small but really cool place for a show!

  2. I saw them at Big Bang last year, and it was a great (and cheap!) night out. They really get the crowd going, and they do some really funny covers!

  3. I'm gutted I can't go, but I bought my ticket for Sonar before I realised it was the same day. If you can – do it! I heard their Cd yesterday andit kicked arse! Everyone who's going is meeting at Bar Rosal on Comercio with Paseo del Born at 8.30pm for pre-gig drinkies…
