London Giglist: 02/03 – 08/03

With January and February ‘down the drain,’ I feel reluctantly optimistic. This week’s giglist is cracking, some great new talent on offer in the capital. 

Public service announcement: This list doesn’t include The Sherlocks, pah!

03/03: Hotel Lux

Think Ian Drury meets The Cribs. Hotel Lux’s mixture of influence and sound is a real USP. Listen out for ‘English Disease,’ very apt in the age of a Coronavirus ridden, Boris Johnson government.

Where? The Waiting Room (Stoke Newington)

 

03/03: Hoofa

I mentioned my recent optimism and well, Hoofa are the epitome of the word. Their sound is upbeat and at times joyous, their biggest gig to date is one not to miss!

Where? The Old Blue Last (Shoreditch)

 

04/03: The Orielles

The Orielles have gone intergalactic in latest record Disco Volador. For a band who consistently amaze, this latest set of songs is daring to say the least. A shame the same can’t be said of Camden though. Gentrification, ew. 

Where? Electic Ballroom (Camden)

 

05/03: The Ninth Wave

The Ninth Wave are a dimensional sounding band, take latest single ‘This Broken Design’ for example. There’s a real aura of Depeche Mode about them, a comparison which probably rings old by now. In truth, it is a refreshing direction in a seemingly reviving genre.

Where? Werkhaus (Brick Lane)

 

06/03 – 08/03: 6 Music Festival

No introduction needed. The 6 Music Festival heads to London with an electrifying, diverse and forward thinking line up. Our picks: black midi, The Big Moon, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Orielles and Kokoroko.

Where? Camden (Various Venues)
