Welcome to our weekly round-up of what’s happening in the grand concert halls, dimly lit basements, airy cafe’s and grimy sweatboxes across the UK. All acts featured come with the Best Fit ‘Seal Of Approval’ so you can be assured that your hard earned cash will be well spent. To tempt your wallets this week, we’ve gathered dates from the likes of Friends and Twin Atlantic, we’ve also dug up some alternative Camden Crawl suggestions in The Land of Kings and Simple Things.
Matthew Dear @ The Hoxton Bar & Grill, London 30/04
Texas born Matthew Dear is bringing his mesmerising, sleek productions to London for what promises to be a stunning performance before heading off on a short European jaunt.
Having started out as the one man project of Marius D. Hagen, Team Me have evolved into a fully fledged, multi-instrumental Nordic pop affair and the transformation is definitely worth your time.
Drawn in by the beautiful simplicity of his hushed harmonies and intrigued by his visionary Bronze format?! Well tonight might just be the perfect excuse to witness both first hand. It’s Gwilym’s first big Bronze Club headline show, presented in conjunction with Paint It Black, in over a year so expect some dazzling production work and perhaps some new material too…
The first in a very intimate series of gigs presented by Jack Daniels, Twin Atlantic’s home coming show at King Tut’s promises to be very special indeed.
Land of Kings Festival @ Various Dalston Venues, London 04 and 05/05
Camden Crawl too passe for you is it?! Quit whining, duck out of the crowds and head over to Dalston for Land of Kinds Festival featuring Best Fit favourites Toy, Bos Angeles, Dreamtrak, NZCA/LINES and Gang Colours.
Heard the hype, heard the killer tracks still not managed to see Brooklyn’s Friends live. Fret not, we’re currently running a competition which means you can win tickets to see them in Newcastle, Bristol or Birmingham. Head here for details on how to enter.
Simple Things @ Various Venues, Bristol 06/05
Looking at the line up for Simple Things Festival my eyes bulged and my internal monologue screamed “how have I not heard of this festival before?!” Well, it’s only in its second year so I don’t feel too bad but with artists such as Squarepusher, Male Bonding, Grimes, Echo Lake, Stealing Sheep, Gross Magic, Factory Floor, Vondelpark and more lined up to play, I feel pretty bummed that I can’t go. What’s your excuse? With a bill like that it had better be damn good!
