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!
17/09: The Ninth Wave / Heavy Rapids
Radio 1 DJ Jack Saunders returns to the Sebright Arms for another edition of Hopscotch. In The Ninth Wave and Heavy Rapid you have two of the country’s most formidable new bands. Throw in a not-so-secret, secret headliner (our lips are sealed) and you have a must-see night of live music!
Where? Sebright Arms (Bethnal Green)
Zuzu is confident, powerful and uplifting. Combining an array of musical influences, she’s touted as the future of Liverpudlian pop. Take a listen to ‘Can’t Be Alone’ and hear for yourself…
Where? Camden Assembly (Camden)
19/09: Juicebox / JW Paris
Sharp rock and roll clashes with bluesy 90s post punk as Juicebox and JW Paris head East to Werkhaus. The venue is one of the capitals guitar hotspots, a newfound favourite amongst bands and fans alike.
Where? Werkhaus (Shoreditch)
19/09: The Camden Mix-Up
Featuring Al Moses, Salvation Jaynes, The Novus and The Rezner – four of the country’s great new bands. Kick Out The Jams are long time supporters of the London scene, their Camden Mix-up is a truly collaborative effort.
Where? Dublin Castle (Camden)
20/09: The Cosmics
The Cosmics are exciting, their brand of psychedelic garage rock is an instant win. Their song writing is venomous, their instrumental craft intense.
Where? The Social (Oxford Circus)
Patawawa’s blend of funk, soul and disco is infectious. The East Midlands band have been making waves over the past two years or so, their London return is one not to be missed!
Where? Notting Hill Arts Club (Notting Hill)
