Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, February 23rd-March 1st

The Lemon Twigs @ Leeds University, Monday 25th February

The Lemon Twigs were formed by two brothers Brian and Michael D‘Addario, both of whom are talented songwriters and multi-instrumentalist. They started working as a duo in 2014 and since then have introduced themselves through their debut albums Do Hollywood from 2016 and Go To School from 2018, on which they were celebrating their love for the sound of the past, most distinctly the ‘60s and ‘70s rock music. Their old school vibe is definitely something unique, so grab your tickets to see The Lemon Twigs live this Monday night! (TICKETS)

Ider @ Headrow House, Wednesday 27th February

Ider are yet another extremely talented duo performing this week in Leeds. Megan and Lily started their musical journey three years ago in London when they released their debut single ‘Sorry’ which was instantly appreciated by listeners for its silky-smooth sound and established Ider as one to watch for the coming years. They dropped their latest song ‘Brown Sugar’ at the beginning of the month which is surely going to sound amazing this Wednesday at the Headrow House. (TICKETS)

Bass Drum Of Death @ The Key Club, Wednesday 27th February

Bass Drum Of Death make bluesy garage-rock music which guarantees a restless night this Wednesday at The Key Club. The charisma of John Barrett, the band’s frontman and main creative power behind Bass Drum Of Death’s music, cannot be mistaken for anything else, creating the unforgettable, chaotic atmosphere that they’ve gotten themselves to be known for. Make sure to drop by and see Bass Drum Of Death play live this week in Leeds! (TICKETS)

Jon Hopkins @ O2 Academy, Friday 1st March

Jon Hopkins’ Singularity was without a doubt one of the best albums of 2018, and included some of the best-produced dance music of the past few years. As usual, Hopkins combined his classical education with incredible musical imagination and the ability to transform them into electronic bliss. During Hopkins’ live shows, there is not a single person who isn’t completely enamoured with his music, making his concerts really one of a kind. He hits the O2 Academy this week. (TICKETS)

Jay Prince @ Belgrave Music Hall, Friday 1st March

London based Jay Prince is an artist that always tries to push himself to the limits and break boundaries that have been set by other people. Constantly looking for new sounds and influences to experiment with, Jay Prince never disappoints when it comes to bringing something exciting and fresh to his music. With a new album WONDER released earlier this year, Jay Prince is joining the list of incredible artists to see live this week in Leeds. (TICKETS)
