Welcome to our weekly gig round-up, all acts featured come with the Best Fit’s ‘Seal Of Approval’ so you can be assured that your hard earned cash will be well spent. This week’s top picks include The xx, Beach House and Shabazz Palaces.
The xx @ Battersea Arts Centre, London 18/05
The last in a string of intimate gigs, tonight’s show at the Battersea Arts Centre promises to be pretty special. We wish we’d won The xx lottery.
Milk Music, Paws and Bleached @ Brudenell Social Club, Leeds 18/05
Slacker anthems? Check. Scuzzy guitars? Check. Words like “vintage” and “analogue”? Check. Get yourself along to the Brudenell Social Club’s 90s night for a tripple bill of grunge, garage rock and hazy shoegaze from Paws, Bleached and Milk Music.
Forest Swords @ Stag & Dagger, Glasgow 19/05
Liverpool man Matthew Barnes gave one of the finest performances at The Great Escape this past weekend and if we could see him again so soon we definitely would.
Jay Z and Kanye West: Watch The Throne @ The 02 Arena, London 20/05
This is guaranteed to be one of the biggest, most awe-inspiring stadium shows you will have a chance to see this year and you have five chances to see it in London…there are no excuses!
Shabazz Palaces @ The Harley Hotel & Bar, Sheffield 22/05
The Seattle based collective were the first hip hop act ever to be signed to Sub Pop, and those questioning this choice should have been immediately silenced by quality of their compelling left field, debut full length Black Up.
Beach House @ Village Underground, London 24/05
The Baltimore dream pop duo return to our fair capitol to treat us to new material from their fourth full length album Bloom, a spectacular, striking and expansive effort.
