Dev Hynes, aka Lightspeed Champion, has announced a festival warm-up show in London at the end of this month.

The hat-wearing folky hero will play the Garage venue on October 28, the day before his Leeds festival show. He will then play the Reading leg of the festival the day after.

Tickets are just a tenner and are on sale now from here.

The former Test Icicles man will be previewing material from his upcoming second album, the follow-up to 2008’s Falling off the Lavender Bridge.
