Energetic young band, The Hitmen and Her bring their dynamic live set to Brick Lane’s 93FeetEast tonight.
The seven-piece group will be presenting their seventh and largest showcase as a headlining act.
The gig will also feature bands Jigawatts, Balls Deep and Some Old Boy on DJ decks.
The Hitmen and Her formed three years ago as a side project but quickly enjoyed success with their approach to covering songs.
Members include actress Hannah Arterton, sister of Bond-girl Gemma Arterton, and singer Tom Packman.
