PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 23rd-29th March

Neon Waltz @ Headrow House, Tuesday 26th March

Neon Waltz was formed in 2013 at the very north-eastern tip of Scotland, or “the arse end of nowhere,” as the band’s drummer Darren Coghill called it. The six-piece indie band drew the interest of former Oasis manager Marcus Russell, which led to their debut album Strange Hymns being released in 2017. Their psychedelic but highly melodic songs, which are influenced by the likes of The Stone Roses and The Coral, will surely create an exciting atmosphere at Headrow House this Tuesday evening, so grab your tickets now to see Noen Waltz live.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs @ Brudenell Social Club, Wednesday 27th March

Pigsx7 are a British band from Newcastle Upon Tyne whose innate instinct for recording brilliant rock tunes has already gained them quite some following. Influenced by bands such as Black Sabbath and Monster Magnet, Pigsx7 are one of the youngest acts on the metal scene and definitely, the one that we’d recommend to see live. Although the gig at Brudenell Social Club this week is already sold out, keep your eyes peeled for their upcoming shows and check out last year’s excellent album King Of Cowards.

Tiger Twins @ Oporto, Wednesday 27th March

Bonded over a mutual love for The Beatles, as well as bands such as The Smiths, The Cribs, The Libertines and The Stone Roses, Tiger Twins were formed in 2016. The Leeds-based band has already released their first official single, which was played on BBC Introducing and got praised for its charming take on guitar pop. With more live dates coming up in the UK, it seems like a perfect opportunity to see Tiger Twins at an intimate venue such as Oporto and support one of the upcoming local bands. (TICKETS)

#360Raw7 @ The Library, Friday 29th March

#360Raw is coming back for it’s seventh event in The Library’s Lending Room after a successful run in 2018. Starting with the first show on the 29th of March, the event will introduce West Yorkshire’s exciting emerging artists, including Clare Kelly from Leeds, The Blacksmith from Castleford, Liam Sullivan from Huddersfield, and Molly Ryder from Leeds. Make sure to be there this Friday night to support local music and meet the upcoming artists from Leeds and Yorkshire. (TICKETS)
