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!
26/09: Pale Waves
Pale Waves were, at one point, Dirty Hit’s new proteges. Now, with venues growing larger and larger, it’s clear that the Manchester band are a force to be reckoned with. Their London returns comes after a successful summer festival stint with mesmeric sets at Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds.
Where? O2 Kentish Town Forum (Kentish Town)
26/09: Marika Hackman
Celebrating the release of Any Human Friend, Marika Hackman is enjoying a fruitful period in an ever evolving musical career. Her third release is by far her best, a curious exploration of youth and sex.
Where? Islington Assembly Hall (Islington)
26/09: No Hot Ashes
No Hot Ashes’ sound is relevant, a snapshot into modern youth. Their London return is highly anticipated following support slots with Spring King, Blossoms and The Amazons and an immense summer festival season.
Where? Colours (Hoxton)
26/09: Pirate Prodigies Showcase
Pirate Studios are revolutionary. Combine their ethos with the DIY supremacy of This Feeling and you have a match made in heaven. Spilt Milk Society, Crystal and Peeping Drexels make up an exciting line-up.
Where? Water Rats (Kings Cross)
27/09: Strange Cages/The Howlers
We LOVE Werkhaus… This week, Strange Cages and The Howlers, amongst others, make up a ferocious line up. Strange Cages are formed on an ethos of psch, garage, punk. The Howlers are a spirited, ‘in your face’ trio bound to leave an everlasting impression. Two of the South’s most exciting prospects.
Where? Werkhaus (Shoreditch)
Which other gigs should we be watching out for as October comes closer?
