PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 14th-20th September

Skinny Living @ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 14th September

Thanks to the overwhelming demand for tickets for their Friday night gig, Skinny Living have added another evening at the Brudenell Social Club on Saturday. Having formed in 2013, they’ve steadily been making their name for over five years, and their talents are borne out by their latest single ‘Let Go’. (TICKETS)

Hyde Park Folk Festival @ Hyde Park Book Club, Sunday 15th September

The first ever Hyde Park Folk Festival is being held at the Hyde Park Book Club on Sunday, with an afternoon and evening’s worth of artists in both The Basement and The Snug starting from 3pm, headlined by Redwood River Band and People Poems respectively. (TICKETS)

Pixies @ O2 Academy Leeds, Tuesday 17th September

With their third reunion album Beneath The Eyrie released this week, the beyond-legendary Pixies bring their current UK tour to Leeds. The uninspired Indie Cindy may not have augured well compared to their glory days of Doolittle and Surfer Rosa, but the band’s newer music has been steadily improving. There are just a few tickets left for this gig – make sure you see these living icons in the flesh! (TICKETS)

Jay Electronica @ Headrow House, Thursday 19th September

Rapper and producer Timothy Elpadaro Thedford, better known as Jay Electronica, brings his latest tour to Leeds’ Headrow House on Thursday night. His first mixtape, Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), consisting of one continuous piece of music without beats and built from the score to movie The Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, came out way back in 2007. However, he’s got two official studio albums waiting in the wings for release in the future, and while he’s often to be found as a guest on other people’s records, you’ll be able to hear what he’s got in store on Thursday’s gig.
