@ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 3rd August
A tour to mark the 40th anniversary of the seminal and often entertainingly
shambolic San Franciscan band Flipper comes to the Brudenell Social Club. Having
formed in 1979, Flipper are often considered progenitors of the kind of sound
popularised by Nirvana in the Nineties – indeed, Nirvana’s bassist Krist
Novoselic briefly played with them during the Noughties, and Kurt Cobain can be
seen wearing one of the band’s T-shirts in the liner notes of In Utero. A
unique opportunity to see an incredibly influential band in the flesh. (TICKETS)
Jones & The Indications @ Brudenell Social Club, Monday 5th
Having released their sophomore studio album American Love Call around six months ago, Durand Jones & The Indications arrive in Leeds on their exhaustive accompanying world tour. With politically and socially aware lyrics meeting soulful, passionate and orchestrated funk and R&B, Jones is a master at striking up that retro Seventies soul feel – think Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, The Impressions, etc. Very few tickets are left, but if you’re quick you might get lucky! (TICKETS)
Flooded @ Hyde Park Book Club, Tuesday 6th
Having created quite a buzz in their native
York with a period of pretty relentless gigging over the last couple of years,
newcomers Flooded embark on their first British headline tour in August.
With debut single ‘Too Much For
Lucy’ and new track ‘Alligator’
under their belts, they’ve been drawing comparisons with early Kaiser Chiefs.
Check them out at Hyde Park Book Club when they come to Leeds on Tuesday! (TICKETS)
Dry Cleaning @ Brudenell Social Club, Friday
London-based post-punk influenced newbies Dry
Cleaning undertake a short tour of the UK this month, one that will also
call in on the Green Man festival in the Brecon Beacons. They arrive in Leeds
to play the Brudenell just in time to kick off the weekend. Infectious and hectoring
single ‘Magic Of Meghan’
has deservedly caught the ears of several indie publications over the last
month, and their six-track debut EP Sweet Princess is out the following
Friday (16th August). (TICKETS)
