The London Gig Guide

Friday 2nd October

Viva Brother – Koko

The band everyone seems to love to hate, Viva Brother are set to bring their self described brit-grit to headline their biggest London show to date. See you there. Simone F

Two Wounded Birds with a Maccabees DJ set – Scala

Two Wounded Birds are the band The Drums could have given slimy Kent birth too, almost Beach Boy’s with elements of The Vaccines With a DJ set from Indie Princes The Maccabess. Simone F

Teeth – Club Nme @ Koko

Dalston trio bring their electric noise to Club NME. If you like Crystal Castles Teeth should be right up your alley. Simone F

Aloosh Plus (club night) The Silver Bullet

Monday 3 October


Ed Sheeran – O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (SOLD OUT)

With a number one album under his ginger locks Sheeran brings whatever genre of music he feel like playing to the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, still I don’t understand the buzz. Simone F

Kids Can’t Fly – Garage (upstairs)

If you like pop-punk with a edgy side Kids Can’t Fly are for you, expect bouncing and trashing from one of the best unsigned pop-punk out there, or so I hear from a friend. Simone F

Tuesday 4 October

The Subways – Koko

Like The Subways need to an intro? We all know who they are, Reading and Leeds legends. Expect songs from their new smashing album. Unless; you don’t have any money to have a good time?

Swim Deep – Barfly

Psych Rock band Swim Deep are bringing their coolness to Barfly, already landing a support slot with The Horrors and amazing performance at 1234 Shoreditch festival. They are not to be missed. Support from Coves (first London show) with All We Are and Hot Panda. A must see show. Simone F

Kids In Glass Houses – HMV Forum

Welsh band Kids In Glass Houses are bringing their indie rock to the famous venue in Kentish Town, I hear a change of musical direction is coming?

All The Young – Borderline

Making waves across the national radio with big ups from Zane Lowe and massive hype from Steve Harris over at XFM, All The Young bring their fresh sound to their very own headline show. Recently supported Morrissey and The Courteeners

Cage The Elephant – HMV Forum

Another band that needs no intro. Cage The Elephant know a thing or two about putting on an amazing show. With support from Dinosaur Pile Up. Simone F

Alela Daine – St. Pancras Old Church

Folk/psych-folk virtuoso Alela Daine is a must see if you have any interest in intimate acoustic music. Alela is a thoughtful songwriter who is capable of creating some truly poignant moments in the live arena. David Hayter

Africa Hi-tech – Plastic People

Cutting edge booming beats, Africa Hi-Tech can’t quite compete with electronica’s elite on record, but in the live arena they have the beats and the textures to wow even the most cynical of audiences. David Hayter

Gold Panda – Koko

Gold Panda has the ability to turn Koko’s inside out with his insanely warped electronica, he could also scare the hell out the Camden faithful with his jarring beats. Equal parts immersive and abrasive, Gold Panda is a must see. David Hayter
