Upcoming gigs 2018: part 1

I’ve always found these threads really useful for seeing what’s coming up, so what’s in your diary? I’m starting 2018 on Thursday with Laetitia Sadier and The Leaf Library at The Lexington, followed by:
23/1 Mary Epworth, Oslo
24/1 Snapped Ankles, Moth Club
30/1 Weather Station, Oslo
31/1 Alela Diane, St Pancras Old Church
19 and 22/2, Four Tet, Village Underground
7/3 Elbow, The O2
15/3 The Clientele, Scala
23/3 Django Django, Printworks
11/4 Arcade Fire, Wembley
12/4 Gwenno, Hoxton Hall
24/4 Courtney Marie Andrews, Hoxton Hall
14/5 Olafur Arnalds, Royal Albert Hall
I’ve got half an eye on one of the Ezra Furman dates and toying with Hookworms in Birmingham once I get paid again.
How about you?

Want to book: Yo La Tengo, Hookworms, Shonen Knife (Brum), Go! Team, Alvvays (Manc)

Just Converge so far. Probably ATDI in March.

Going to see crywank tomorrow, which should be alright. I genuinely like his earlier stuff a lot more than the more recent albums, but alas. He’s also playing 2 gigs in Belfast in one day, one of which is all ages, which is a nice thing to do IMO.

Otherwise, fa

Lubomyr Melnyk @ Jazz Cafe
Anthony Reynolds doing Jack songs with a full band @ St Pancras Old Church (I think)

Might book Suuns and hopefully shitloads of Deerhunter shows when the tour gets announced properly.
