Another upcoming gig thread

Can I start another one of these threads? Jan and Feb are usually a struggle gig-wise and having just done my gigs of 2017 I’m keen to start filling the 2018 diary and these are always great for inspiration. Upcoming I have:

Alexis Taylor in Aldershot this Friday
The Wave Pictures, Lexington (Wednesday show)
Lubomyr Melnyk at the Jazz Cafe
Wand in Berlin in Feb
Angel Olsen at the Union Chapel

and much further afield … the Red Rooster festival and End of the Road.


A lot of teenage favourites to start the year off:

MGMT - Electric Brixton
Franz Ferdinand - Brixton Academy
At The Drive-In - Brixton Academy
No Age - Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club
Friendly Fires - Brixton Academy
Arcade Fire - Wembley Arena

Rostam - Scala

Haven’t got tickets yet but also considering The Go! Team at Electric Ballroom and The Soft Moon at The Dome

Got Cloud Nothings on Friday and Dinosaur Jr on Monday
