Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 28th September-4th October

Rodrigo Y Gabriela @ Leeds O2 Academy, Saturday 28th September

If you’ve never encountered the music of Rodrigo Y Gabriela, the live arena is the perfect context in which to introduce yourself. Currently plugging their fifth studio album Mettavolution, released back in April, their acoustic guitar music is influenced in equal parts by flamenco, rock and heavy metal! (TICKETS)

Jesca Hoop @ Brudenell Social Club, Tuesday 1st October

Having released yet another splendid studio album in Stonechild earlier this year, displaying her ability to wring revelations out of very familiar sounds, Jesca Hoop is well overdue her penetration into the mainstream at this point. For now, though, you’re able to catch her beautiful music in the intimate environs of the Brudenell Social Club. (TICKETS)

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard @ Leeds O2 Academy, Wednesday 2nd October

Having released two albums in 2019 already, with the heavy metal-influenced Infest The Rat’s Nest last month following the psychedelic innocence of Fishing For Fishies, the unbelievably prolific King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and their indefatigable leader Stu Mackenzie are filling out the biggest venues of their careers. They come to Leeds’ O2 Academy on Wednesday, tickets are still available in very limited qualities! (TICKETS)

Sebadoh @ Brudenell Social Club, Thursday 3rd October

Originating as a side-project for Dinosaur Jr. bassist Lou Barlow nearly thirty years ago, Sebadoh is now an American indie institution in the same way as his parent band. Recently breaking their silence with their first album in six years, Act Surprised, the group’s sludgy yet melodic sound still sounds vital. Check out these alternative rock heroes in the flesh at the Brudenell Social Club on Thursday night! (TICKETS)
