This is the first of a new monthly feature where we aim to point you in the direction of some of the best gigs that the capital has to offer.
These are the gigs that we think you really shouldn’t miss for the next 4 weeks:
The Mariners Children/Lulu & The Lampshades/Peggy Sue – The Luminaire – Tickets
Johnny Flynn – The Luminare – Tickets sold out!
The Luminaire is the latest London venue to close its doors. This obviously calls for remembrance in the form of top-notch shows provided by The Mariners Children/Lulu & The Lampshades/Peggy Sue on Friday and folk swooner Johnny Flynn on the Sunday. Last chance people!
Emmy The Great – Southbank Centre/Purcell Room – tickets sold out!
Not much has been heard of the delightful musings of Emmy since 2009 album First Love, but she is back with a new album and show all at once. Tremendous.
The Vaccines – Barfly – tickets sold out!
Much has been written hyped and prophesised for Jay Jay Pistolet’s new outfit, so this could very well be their last show in such a small capacity. Album drops 14th March.
Roddy Woomble – Union Chapel – tickets
Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble plays at possibly the most beautiful venue in London. A far cry away from his indie-rock of former years, expect cut back, acoustic folk with Celtic influence. It’ll be rather lovely.
Elbow – o2 Arena – tickets
If there is one band worth braving the o2 arena for surely it’s Elbow. Expect a set spanning their entire career, including new album Build A Rocket Boys! out on 7th March.
Peter Bjorn & John – Dingwalls – tickets
Fresh from completing their album Gimme Some – released 28th March on Wichita Records – the indie-pop trio will be in full swing ahead of the release.
That’s your lot for this month.
See you down the front!
