The Rifles are to join a host of bands set to play at Mercs legendary Carnaby Street store over the summer months as part of the LIVE festival.
Performing a classic set, the intimate gig will kick start the bank holiday weekend, taking place at 6pm on Friday 28th August.
Having enjoyed a close relationship with the clothing brand over the years, lead singer Joel Stoker is looking forward to playing such an intimate gig: We love doing these types of small gigs. Its something different. Weve always liked playing small venues and you cant get smaller and closer to people than this!
So far, the LIVE sessions have seen folk/electro act Hatchlings and a special DJ set from former Dirty Pretty Things member, Didz Hammond. Recently the volume was turned up with a full rock set from Stoke band New Education.
Bands playing sessions over the next few weeks include Mean Poppa Lean on the 31st July, Officer Kicks on14th August and Red Stripe Award winners Philadelphia Mainline on 11th September.
Mercs LIVE in-store series will be brought to a close on the 25th September by festival favourites Official Secrets Act.
