London is a hotbed of gigs, perhaps the best music city in the world. Here are just some of the events we’ve got our eye on this week!
Fidlar return to London once more, crossing the pond in celebration of latest album Almost Free. It is a deeper, more considered affair, but still remains true to their skate-rock roots.
Where? Electric Brixton (Brixton)
27/08: YOWL / Peeping Drexels
Brixton’s Windmill is South London’s BEST musical hangout, this bill epitomises that! YOWL, based in Peckham, capture the frustration of modern London with ease. Peeping Drexels are hard-edged and sleazily melodic, dazzled by intrigue. What’s not to love?
Where? Windmill Brixton (Brixton)
28/08: Sundara Karma
Sundara Karma top another War Child showcase, this time taking place at the immensely popular EartH. It has been a quiet year for Sundara Karma, they are ramping up preparations for a third LP. It comes as part of Safe & Sound, a series set to become an annual event celebrating the best of alternative and leftfield artists whilst raising money for charity.
Where? EartH (Dalston)
Groove heavy outfit Valeras top one of August’s most impressive line ups. Prima Queen, Nadia Sheikh, Venus, People In Museums and GIRLI (DJ Set) complete an exciting, girl-powered line-up. All proceeds will be donated to the My Body Back campaign, provided support to women after rape and sexual assault.
We cannot recommend this one enough!
Where? Werkhaus (Shoreditch)
01/09: London Communion inc. Superego and Suns Up
‘Communion Presents’ returns to West London for a night of forward-thinking, hard-hitting new music. On the bill are Superego, faves of Pale Waves and Black Honey, and Suns Up, endorsers of guitar-heavy pop.
Where? Notting Hill Arts Club (Notting Hill)
