Boycotting the red hearts we head straight to Sheffield City Hall on the 15th for Nat Johnson and The Figureheads. With the release the wonderful album I’m Across, I’m Ashore the day before; you’ll have time to learn your lines and sing-a-long to ‘charming, folk based pop songs’. It’ll be a lovely evening for sure.
Thursday the 16th hosts two very different gigs. The Leisure Society hit The Harley support comes from Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards and those Leeds mentalists Pulled Apart By Horses at The Leadmill. It’s a choice of silk or hessian, rough or smooth or even just folk/pop/rock or loud/dirty/rock, the choice as they say is yours.
Punk Pussycats Against The Cuts take over the Plug on the 17th with a range of acts including Black Cat White Cat, The Violet May, Pete David and the Payroll Union, Black Echo and more. Without being political and by the looks of the gangs performing it’ll be a night with a bit of angst and a lot of sounds.
Staying at the Plug, the artist known as SBTRKT, a man who sticks to anonymity preferring to let the music do the talking on the 22nd he’s accompanied on the night by Disclosure. Definitely one for those who need a midweek perk up.
Ghostpoet alongside Alt J, Like Lions and Wooderson are all set to shake DQ on the 23rd courtesy of Xrayhorse. A night which fuses local acts alongside ex Leeds Uni students and ‘up and comers’ Alt J with Ghostpoet doing his thang live. A cracking night to be had and one step closer to the weekend, why not pop by and see what’s going on?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEWqIuJHqCM
The team from Pull Yourself Together bring a stunning line up to the Queens Social on the 24th, Allo Darlin, Standard Fare, This Many Boyfriends and The Passing Fancy are all set to take the glittery stage and delight you with their sweet sounds. Proving popular this gig has been moved from the Shakespeare to a larger venue, so why not make the most of the space and get yourself down for an indie pop treat.
