Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, March 3rd-9th

As we write this, it’s not at all clear that at least one of these gigs will go ahead, so severe has the Beast From The East been. Venues around Leeds have sadly been cancelling a large amount of gigs all of the last week, but hopefully things will have eased up to the point where you can brave the cold and actually see these shows!

Django Django @ Church, Saturday 3rd March

A fixture of the 2010s indie scene and an established festival favourite, Scottish art-rock four-piece Django Django bring the tour behind their third album Marble Skies to Leeds and the surprisingly small venue of The Church, it seems to us at least. But with an arsenal of great singles the size of a small navy to call upon by now, it surely can’t be long before the bigger spaces beckon.

Elbow @ First Direct Arena, Tuesday 6th March

Guy Garvey and Elbow have been around even longer. Their greatest hits tour, marking their seven studio albums dating from last year’s wonderful Little Fictions all the way back to seminal 2001 debut Asleep In The Back and everything in between, calls in at the First Direct Arena for what’s certain to be a night of magical showmanship and great memories. With support from the formidable indie figure of John Grant, this is not a show to be missed!

Brian Fallon @ Leeds Beckett University, Friday 9th March

Although his parent band have recently announced a 10th anniversary performance of their seminal 2008 album The ’59 Sound later this year, The Gaslight Anthem’s lead singer Brian Fallon is currently out on the road plugging his second solo album Sleepwalkers, released last month. While we eagerly await what the band will do next, Fallon is more than capable of putting on a great show himself, as Leeds Beckett will surely experience.
