In our latest preview of all things musical in Leeds we take a look at two emerging acts on the UK indie scene and one established legend… it was a tough week to choose just three gigs with Weezer, Mount Eerie, Sleaford Mods, AJ Tracey, J Hus and Ibibio Sound Machine not even making the list.
But who did make our illustrious top three this week? Read below to find out…
The Horrors @ Leeds Beckett University – Saturday October 21st
We all know about The Horrors by now. The phenomenal five-piece from Southend have delighted audiences for a decade with their ambient style of psychedelia and with new record V (get it? Because it’s their fifth record…) being a welcome return to form, their performance on Saturday night should prove to be a good one.
You can buy tickets to the gig here and read our review of their new album V here.
Will Joseph Cook @ Brudenell Social Club – Monday October 23rd
Will Joseph Cook has been gathering momentum for years, but it’s been in the last 18 months where things have really started to explode for the artist barely out of his teens. Now with his debut LP Sweet Dreamer under his belt you can go see Cook perform in all his extravagant glory at the legendary Brudenell Social Club.

Declan McKenna @ Leeds Metro University – Tuesday October 24th
Much like the previously mentioned WJC, Declan McKenna has been making strides in the music industry for quite some time. McKenna has been performing at Glastonbury since he was 16 and now, the man from Hertfordshire is on the road promoting his fantastic indie-pop debut record What Did You Think About The Car? We’ve loved McKenna for a long time on this website and we can’t recommend his show on Tuesday enough.
