PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 2nd-8th March

Nubya Garcia @ Belgrave Music Hall, Saturday 2nd March

A forward-thinking saxophonist and composer, and one of few young female artists breaking as an instrumentalist, Nubya Garcia is one of the most exciting artists on the current, revived and thriving UK jazz scene. Her music is beautiful and passionate, created with a clear vision in mind and influenced by her Caribbean heritage, as well as the sound of London, where she grew up. Nubya Garcia is a truly unique artist, so come to see her playing at Belgrave this Saturday, she’s definitely not one to be missed. (TICKETS)

Polo @ Headrow House, Saturday 2nd March

Leeds-based Polo might just be getting started with their career, but it doesn’t mean that they haven’t had a chance to already impress a few people, in both Yorkshire and beyond it. Their atmospheric pop with a hint of lush R’n’B added to it, has made it to radio stations across the country, while Polo’s latest singles ‘Louder Than Words’ and ‘On My End’ showed a more playful and confident side of the band. They are surely going to play an amazing gig this Saturday at Headrow House so grab your tickets now! (TICKETS)

Snapped Ankles @ Brudenell Social Club, Thursday 7th March

The London-based post-punk act, Snapped Ankles are not your average band. Describing themselves as “AGRROcultural PUNKTRONICA” they point to the core influences of their aesthetic – nature, punk and electronica. And what does this explicit combination lead to? An original, “shamanistic” stage attire and poppy, rhythmic post-punk songs which are often enlivened with synthesizers. Hot off the release this week of their sophomore album Stunning Luxury, Snapped Ankles are playing Brudenell Social Club this Thursday and they’re already promising an unforgettable show. (TICKETS)

Kero Kero Bonito @ Belgrave Music Hall, Friday 8th March

Another band coming to Leeds from London this week is Kero Kero Bonito. The indie-pop trio broke out in 2016 with their sophomore, synth-pop dominated album Bonito Generation, followed by an equally well-received record Time ‘n’ Place from last year. Sometimes chaotic, while simultaneously insanely joyful and pop-oriented, Kero Kero Bonito are also unpredictable and fun. Come to Belgrave this Friday to see them live! (TICKETS)

George Ezra @ First Direct Arena, Friday 8th March

One of the biggest names in music right now, Georga Ezra is selling out arenas after the immense success of his latest album Staying At Tamara’s from 2018. Awarded 2019 BRIT Award for British Male Solo Artist, Ezra is definitely at the top of his career and there are no signs of him slowing down anytime soon. If you’re a fan of his catchy, feel-good pop tunes, marked with Ezra’s unmistakably deep and emotional voice, then definitely check out the tickets for his upcoming gig at the First Direct Arena.
