London is a hotbed of live music events, perhaps the best musical city in the world. Here are just some of the gigs we’ve got our eye on this week!
07/08: Weird Milk, Lawrence Taylor, Junodream
Weird Milk are described as ‘indie-pop perfection.’ With that in mind, expect an uplifting night of nostalgic riffs and forward-thinking anthems at the Camden Assembly. Throw in Lawrence Taylor and Junodream and you have three of the most promising artists in the country.
Where? Camden Assembly (Camden)
08/08: Kid Kapichi, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard & Beach Riot
George Godfrey’s ‘Alt Disco’ rolls into Dalston and… it’s sold out! The line-up? Rock meets fuzz-pop. Three of the country’s most stellar new bands mish-mash into one huge, riotous rock and roll celebration come Thursday Night.
Where? The Victoria (Dalston)
08/08: Johnny Marr
The famous Smiths guitarist returns to London once more, this time in unfamiliar surroundings as part of Nile Rodgers’ Meltdown Festival. Taking place and the city’s famous Southbank Centre, the self-curated event is a celebration of musical diversity. Johnny Marr epitomises that.
Where? Southbank Centre (Waterloo)
09/08: The Queen’s Head
The Bulletproof Bomb is no more. Replacing them is a project far more ferocious, far more outgoing. With a clever brand and even cleverer songs, expect in your face post-punk from the outset.
Where? The Lexington
09/08: Stay Club, Sarpa Salpa, Drusila, Kid Violet
New kids Modern Age Music return to 229 The Venue with another impressive curated indie line up. Topping the bill is Stay Club, exciting Indie Pop upstarts from Camden. With Sarpa Salpa, Drusila, Kid Violet in support, expect uplifting goodness throughout.
Where? 229 Venue 2 (Great Portland Street)
10/08: Strong Island Recordings All Dayer w/ L.A. Peach, Malady & more
Cross-genre independent record label Strong Island Recordings return to East London for another dreamy all-dayer. L.A. Peach top the bill, described by So Young as an intricate amalgamation Father John Misty and a Mac DeMarco. Watch out for Malady – their sound is dreamy!
Where? Shacklewell Arms (Dalston)
