What gigs are you going to next week?



It’s Independent Venue Week next week, so let’s all get out and support our local venues.

Here are some recommendations:

Vauxhall are sponsoring me to go on a roadtrip and I’m looking for a few more shows to goto. Currently these are the ones I’m most definitely off to are these.

Mon: Amber Arcades @ Bedford Esquires
Thurs: Dead! + False Advertising @ Sunflower Lounge in Birmingham
Sat: Richard Hawley + Juanita Stein @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge
Sun: Girl Band @ John Peel Centre, Stowmarket


Start it early and come to The Hotelier in Leeds on friday


I’m going to see The Fall at O2 Forum Kentish Town and Black Sabbath at The O2 Arena. Don’t know if either of them count as ‘independent’ venues…


The Dome (in Tufnell Park) on Wednesday and the Windmill (in Brixton) on Friday.

Both are independent venues, and the latter is in fact a show for IMW.


Future of the Left at Clwb Ifor Bach on Friday.


Yama Warashi, Kayla Painter at the Exchange
John (& lots more) at the Stag and Hounds
Mai, Mai, Mai at the Old England

Thursday, Friday, Saturday in Bristol


I do really want to goto that but I fear the wrath of Falco if I was to ask for guestlist.


What’s the worst that could happen?


This month I am going to:

The Flaming Lips - Brixton Academy
Half Waif - Surya (not been to this venue before)
Adem - Union Chapel (Daylight Music)


Not an independent venue. So embarrassing …


I figured that if I didn’t stick the ‘O2’ at the front then I would get away with it. But there’s no outsmarting you!


I’ve got a ticket for Steve Mason at the Barbican next Friday, but would rather go to Ramsgate Music Hall to see FEWS. Not because it’s Independent Music Venue Week, I just can’t be arsed to go to the Barbican.


The Telescopes at the 100 Club.


Oathbreaker at The Brudenell next Thursday


Richard Hawley’s on Parlophone, hardly independent (edit: oh it’s the venue that counts)

Anyway I’ll probably go and see Grimm Grimm in Cafe Oto next Thursday
Then a punk gig with Fex Urbis and Scrap Brain at Vinyl Deptford next Friday


Seeing the hotellier hope they don’t play any of that first album nonsense again


haven’t yama warashi been replaced by scarlet rascal?


Pay for it!


I’m finally gonna get to see girl band next week, cannot wait.
Oh and goat girl are supporting and they’re excelllent as well


A recent amendment I believe. May well go anyway. Haven’t seen those rascals for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages…
