Live At Leeds 2018 – Ones To Watch #2 @ The Wardrobe, Saturday November 25th

The second of two showcases organised by local promoters Futuresound for acts playing at 2018’s Live At Leeds on May 5th next year, this day-long showcase at The Wardrobe will be a great afternoon and evening if it’s anything like as enjoyable as the last one back in September.

The names on the bill may not be established, but the high quality of the first showcase indicated that the spirit of discovering new acts isn’t restricted to one summer bank holiday weekend! Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi headlines the evening, having recently released his Bloom EP late last month.

Kllo @ Headrow House, Wednesday November 29th

Following three years’ worth of promising EPs and singles, Australian duo Kllo dropped their debut album proper, Backwater, earlier this month and didn’t fail to live up to the hype that had built up around it.
