Plus, win tickets to the mammoth London psych three-dayer this month

At the end of this month, ace London promoters Baba Yaga's Hut will be putting on the Raw Power Weekender, a mighty, mighty behemoth of a three-dayer. Running from August 29-31 at The Dome and The Boston Arms in Tufnell Park, the festival takes in a line-up of such blazing psychedelic iridescence we can barely look, though a quick glance reveals that Teeth Of The Sea, Acid Mothers Temple, Bo Ningen, Hey Colossus, Bad Guys, The Oscillation, Terminal Cheesecake, Clinic, That Fucking Tank, Girl Band, Flamingods, Xaviers, Shopping, Gum Takes Tooth and Henry Blacker are just a few of those on the bill. If that wasn't enough, then BYH's Anthony Chalmers has put together a YouTube playlist of prime tracks from appearing acts - have a listen at the foot of the piece. We hear the tickets are selling fast, so head over to the Facebook event quick sharp to get hold of them. However, BYH have generously put us in charge of giving away a pair of weekend tickets to one reader and a pair of tickets to a day of their choice to a second. To be in with a chance of winning, just send your answer to the following question to, with 'RAW' in the subject line.

A. Brixton Academy
B. London Palladium
