Welcome to our weekly round-up of shows happening in the grand concert halls, dimly lit basements, airy cafe’s and grimy sweatboxes across the UK and Ireland. 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 Purity Ring, First Aid Kit and Bobby Womack.
Bobby Womack @ The Forum, London 25/11
Appearing with special guests Damon Albarn and Richard Russell, Bobby Womack is set to perform songs from his incredible XL released album The Bravest Man In The Universe tonight as part of the first of two shows at HMV’s Forum.
dawn hunger @ Birthdays, London 26/11
The brainchild of Fuck Buttons’ Andrew Hung, Dawn Hunger is not your average side project. Tonight will see Andy’s twisted, jagged, minimal electronic creations performed by Claire Inglis and Matthew de Pulford. Andy himself won’t be part of the live line-up, or in his own words “I was interested in the concept of composing for musicians and not being involved in the live performance.”
Crystal Castles @ O2 ABC, Glasgow 26/11
Experimental Toronto duo Alice Glass and Ethan Kath bring their hedonistic, sinister electronic compositions to Glasgow for what promises to be an incredible night.
First Aid Kit @ O2 Academy, Bristol 27/11
Expect woozy americana guitars, beautiful vocal harmonies, understatedly dramatic percussion and a wonderfully theatrical stage presence from our favourite Swedish folk sisters.
Purity Ring, Doldrums & Ghosting Season @ The Kazimier, Liverpool 28/11
Would you just look at that line-up? Whether you like your electronic music with a twist of pop, a dash of the obscure or a hefty dose of techno, this is the place to be on Wednesday.
Ja Ja Ja Presents Mø, Sin Cos Tan & Highasakite @ The Lexington, London 29/11
Celebrating their third birthday, Nordic Music Export are bringing over some of the finest new bands over for a night of slick female fronted pop, Finnish new wave and the kind of drama only Scandinavian countries seem to be able to muster in their indie efforts.
Wild Nothing @ Brudenell Social Club, Leeds 29/11
Jack Tatum’s addictive, forlorn dream pop will swoop you up into its warm, hazy arms.
