Somthing like this:

Nils frahm in Bristol
Marillion in Reading
Angel Olsen at union chapel
Kanda bongo man in reading
Trembling bells in Newbury
Are you listening festival in reading (IDLES just announced for this!)

And much further afield

Plus really hoping that julien baker announces some decent solo dates when she’s over supporting belle and Sebastian.

hoping to do the casteface show in London too.

And the rocket recordings wekeender in London in March has a ridiculously good line up, but requires sorting some childcare (and convincing myself that a weekend in the crappy garage is bearable for that lineup).
