Gig Guide Male Bonding

Male Bonding – The Globe // 25th September 2011

Touring on the end of the release of their excellent second album Endless Now, Dalston-based trio Male Bonding play The Globe. Raucous, lively and fun as hell, this should be an excellent show. Support from next-big-thing hip-fuzzsters The History Of Apple Pie and Cardiff in-your-face alternative rock trio Kutosis.

Gig Guide Skint and Demoralised

The Brighton Weekender – Audio // 24th September 2011

Day two of the Brighton Weekender sees sure-to-be excellent sets from Skint and Demoralised, Half Crown and Run Young Lovers. It’s all for charidee too (Amnesty International, to be precise) so even if you think the music’s crap, you can still drink yourself into a generous stupor. Alternatively, upstairs sees the house and techno club night Warehouse welcome Filthy Dukes and Stopmakingme on the decks. Seperate nights, same venue.

Gig Guide Slow Club

Slow Club – The Cooler // 25th September 2011

The follow up to their delicate and beautiful debut album, Slow Club’s second album Paradise was released just last week and picked up an impressive 7.8 on Pitchfork. A slight change from their previous work, it’s a stunning release that pulls at the heartstrings – and should come across excellently live. Support from Cardiff’s Sweet Baboo will be the perfect appetite whetter.

Gig Guide Metronomy

Metronomy – The Leadmill // 22nd September 2011

Originally intended as a low-key project borne out of Joseph Mount’s bedroom in the small town of Totnes, Devon, Metronomy have come a very long way. Their second album ‘Nights Out’ was probably the best album to come out of the so-called ‘nu-rave’ boom, and their latest incarnation has seen them become an altogether different band with the Mercury-nominated ‘English Riviera’, a fine album of mature pop. With a bit of luck we can still expect light shows and dance routines.
