London Giglist: 09/03 – 15/03

It is a joyous new week of music in the capital. Did you know, live music is a proven form of protection against coronavirus? Okay, maybe not! But still, ignore the fear-mongering of the mainstream media and stock-up on a heavy dose of live music.

11/03: Bryan Ferry 

I first came across the sweet tones of Bryan Ferry at an Arctic Monkeys gig in 2014. They played Roxy Music’s ‘Love Is The Drug’ alongside trippy visuals before they appeared on stage. It was a moment of revelation. 

He returns to the Royal Albert Hall, the site of 1974s legendary live album, alongside an 11-piece band.

Where? Royal Albert Hall (South Kensington)

 

11/03: PVA

PVA’s brand of disco-punk is genre binding. Naturally, it is their live sound which has garnered a reputation on national scale. Don’t believe me, check out the below Lou Smith video for reference. Otherworldly…

Go see them in their natural habitat, The Windmill – the country’s greatest music venue.

Where? The Windmill (Brixton)

 

12/03: Wynona Bleach/A Void

There is something quite joyous about Wynona Bleach. Their sound is dimensional, well suited to the live setting. Clever lyrics combine with powerful guitar and vocals. They return to Camden alongside A Void. 

The latter have garnered a great reputation, from Paris to London and all in-between. They both come as part of the legendary Camden Mix-Up, now in its 18th edition at the Dublin Castle. Laaaaverlyyyy. 

Where? The Dublin Castle (Camden)

 

12/03: Be Charlotte

With a breadth of clever musical themes and an intriguing brand of analogue pop, Be Charlotte is destined to a fruitful musical career. Working under the umbrella of Columbia/Sony Music, it is clear that the Dundee born musician is well regarded in industry spheres.

Feel-good and surprisingly joyous, mainstream success incoming!

Where? Notting Hill Arts Club (Notting Hill)

 

13/03: Modern Technology

Modern Technology capture the decadence of modern dystopia in their sound. The two piece are reminiscent of Dale Barkley’s Amazing Snakehead, with all the elements of East London city-life entwined. Noise-rock at its purest, a joy!

They support 72%.

Where? Shacklewell Arms (Hackney Downs)

 

14/03: Dutch Mustard/Framatics

Dutch Mustard’s DIY soundscape is resourceful and well practiced. Take ‘Get What You Want’ for example. It vocals are genius, its guitar riff never out of place in the greatest of rock and roll tracks. Framatics feature too. They currently celebrate the release of latest single ‘Look In Your Eye,’ a mind-bending, tension-building drop. 

Big up Benumu! Notting Hill Arts Club is clearly the place to be this week.

Click Music is more than a music site. It is an organisation, a collective, a homepage for a scene which is more powerful, more corrosive and more relevant than ever.
