Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, September 8th-14th

Goat Girl @ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 8th September

Goat Girl are a DIY band from south London, a four-piece making smart, politically oriented post-punk music. Their eponymous debut album was released earlier this year, and immediately explained why so many had put Goat Girl on the “ones to watch” music radar, showcasing a fearlessly direct but also playful and goofy band that is making sure not to be taken too seriously. Definitely one of Britain’s hottest new indie acts, Goat Girl are visiting Brudenell Social Club for the second time this year. Make sure not to miss them this time around!

Holy Wave @ Headrow House, Thursday 13th September

Holy Wave are garage psycho band from El Paso, Texas. The band is known and loved on the local scene in Austin, where they first made the name for themselves, however, their signature hazy, lysergic sound has gained them fans in other locations as well. On their latest album Adult Fear (2018), Holy Wave exposed their liking for sonic exploration, experimenting with instrumentation in their songs, as well as adding more emotional depth to their material. This week they’re bringing their psychedelic sound to Leeds, playing the Headrow House on Thursday.

Dylan LeBlanc @ Brudenell Social Club, Friday 14 September

Dylan LeBlanc started writing his own songs when he was eleven and began performing at the age of 15. Coming from Shreveport, Louisiana, LeBlanc was always surrounded by great musicians, including his father James LeBlanc, a longtime Muscle Shoals sessions player. With music flowing in his veins it was only a matter of time before LeBlanc started a career on a professional level and gained recognition outside of his home town. He has been gifted with a unique voice, smokey and bluesy, which instantly grabs the attention of the listener and makes it hard to forget his music, influenced by Tom Petty, Neil Young and The Faces. A mixture of country, rock and blues, LeBlanc is bringing his sentimental tunes to the Brudenell Social Club this Friday night.
