How Does It Feel To Be Loved? is a London club night playing indiepop, northern soul, Motown, girl groups and sixties heartbreak. In its eight year existence, many of the musicians playing at Bowlie 2 have guest DJ-ed at the club (Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell, Carey Lander and Gavin Dunbar, Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake and Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley), alongside a host of kindred spirits (Kevin Rowland from Dexys Midnight Runners, Lawrence from Felt and David Gedge of The Wedding Present, to name just a few). “Legendary indie club” - NME."
