marthas and arthurs.

unless you live under a rock or are my mom, you probably subscribe to daily candy, which (daily, duh) emails tidbits of things you should be doing or buying, specific to your location. i have stupidly been subscribed to 'all cities' when i SHOULD have been subscribed to daily candy: london, since, as we all know, london is on the cutting edge of cool. DC: london has really made my day with today's candy, courtesy of london correspondent audrey:

LOOK WHO'S COMING TO DINNER.For your last dinner party, you spent two days making heavenly stew, 45 minutes fluffing egg whites, and two hours on a seating arrangement that resulted in the singles pulling and the marrieds flirting.

What did your guests do for you? They brought cheap red wine, then spilt it on the white carpet.

Next time, invite vocal harmony group Marthas & Arthurs. In exchange for a meal, they’ll perform for you and your guests for free. The four-person indie band — who describe their musical style as a cross between Belle and Sebastian and the The Mamas & the Papas — play private dinners, launches or other events. All you have to do is e-mail them three good reasons why they should pick your party.

That’s what we call singing for your supper.

SOJUSTTOBECLEAR, this talented band of accordion-playing strangers will come hang out with you and engage in free musical performance if you feed them, with the only catch being that you must live in london.
