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.
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.
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.”
Experimental Toronto duo Alice Glass and Ethan Kath bring their hedonistic, sinister electronic compositions to Glasgow for what promises to be an incredible night.
Expect woozy americana guitars, beautiful vocal harmonies, understatedly dramatic percussion and a wonderfully theatrical stage presence from our favourite Swedish folk sisters.
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.
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.
Jack Tatum’s addictive, forlorn dream pop will swoop you up into its warm, hazy arms.
