01/10: Lady Bird
Having been postponed due to injury, this one still promises to be an exciting affair. Lady Bird are one of the most exciting garage rock bands in the country right now AND representing Kent in the process. Signed to Girl Fight Records (Slaves), they are set for a fruitful musical future.
Where? Moth Club (Hackney)
Allah-Las need no introduction. Gearing up for the release of new album LAHS, their surf rock vibes are genuinely quite heavenly.
Where? EartH (Dalston)
02/10: Red Rum Club
Making waves on the country’s underground circuit, Red Rum Club look sure set to break the big time in the coming year or so. Their Lexington gig comes alongside some of their biggest shows to date. Their sound is simple: Banger after banger!
Where? The Lexington (Islington)
Sheafs’ brand of indie is heavy in mesmeric guitar riffs and anthemic lyricism. Their northern swagger often sends London crowds into nostalgic meltdown. No doubt their Hoxton soiree will be immense!
Where? Colours (Hoxton)
Bute have been making waves in Cardiff and beyond in recent years. Latest single ‘Dissapear’ proves their musical worth. They head to Werkhaus, Shoreditch’s favourite new home of indie music in what promises to be their biggest London gig to date.
Where? Werkhaus (Shoreditch)
03/10: Tadhg Daly
Born in Jersey, Tadhg Daly is beginning to make London his home. Having sold out venues such as The Troubadour and Notting Hill Arts Club, this date marks natural musical progression. Support comes from Fergus.
Where? The Finsbury (Finsbury Park)
04/10: Kid Kapichi/White Room
If Kid Kapichi were trading on the stock market then their worth would’ve shot up twofolds as they took Reading & Leeds by storm this summer. They return to London alongside White Room in what might be this week’s most exciting line-up of all!
Where? Camden Assembly (Camden)
05/10: Deptford Mix-Up
New Cross/Deptford is a hotbed of creative talent, whether it be in music, art or literature. Presented by Kick Out The James/ArtBeat Promo and friends, it is as much a celebration of the underground as it is music. SONS, The C33s and Children of the State all feature.
Where? Amersham Arms (New Cross)
05/10: Indie Central Music 5th Birthday Bash
ICM & Friends present a special 5th Birthday bash over at the Sebright Arms. Line up features Beach For Tiger, Belles and Fianco PLUS a special guest DJ set. ICM’s online presence is a blessing to indie music fans, here’s to another 5 years!
Where? Sebright Arms (Bethnal Green)
06/10: The Garage Flowers/Happymess
Presented by ‘Raw,’ this one promises to liven up any Sunday evening. The Garage Flowers are ethereal and anthemic at the same time, their melodic sound best suited to summer. Happymess, a London band with an ever-growing reputation, also feature!
Where? Dublin Castle (Camden)
