Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 7th-13th October

There’s always loads of live music going on in Leeds any given week – here’s three great live events worth your time from October 7th-13th!

Sivu @ Brudenell Social Club – Sunday, October 8th

A former touring partner with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and London Grammar, Cambridge-born singer-songwriter James Page got a huge break with Atlantic Records for his debut album Something On High three years ago. Now supporting his recently released follow-up album Sweet Sweet Silent, Sivu comes to the Brudenell Social Club for what will be an enjoyable evening of folk-inflected indie-pop.

Marsden Jazz Festival – ALL WEEKEND, October 7th-8th

Not technically Leeds, but if you’re feeling adventurous and looking for something a bit different whilst getting to know the local area, head over to Marsden for the world-renowned jazz festival! The festival celebrated its 40th anniversary last year and is known for premiering some of the best acts in the jazz and funk scene; this year you can see Mercury Prize nominees Dinosaur, whilst also taking in many of the free acts in the picturesque Yorkshire hillsides.

Fakear @ Headrow House – Thursday, October 12th

This one is for the fans of pure electronic music. Fakear, aka Theo Le Vigoureux, has been working hard developing his sound for some time, consistently releasing EPs and albums every year since 2011, and after breaking into the mainstream through the visceral ‘La Lune Rousse’ has only managed to develop his reputation as one of the premier up and coming producers. The future-star has recently released his Welcome To Japan EP and you can see the Caen-born star visit Leeds this Thursday at Headrow House.
