Photobucket Photobucket Les Savy Fav – The Globe // 23rd February 2011 Regularly touted as one of the best live bands in the world, Les Savy Fav play Albany Road’s The Globe venue, which should certainly be an interesting backdrop for the band. Odds are this will be a pretty memorable show, especially with support coming from Young Legionnaire (formed of bits Bloc Party’s Gordon Moakes, Paul Mullen of The Automatic and yourcodenameis:milo and former I Was A Cub Scout and current La Roux live drummer William Bowerman) and Cardiff’s Truckers Of Husk (recently boosted by ex-Future of the Left bassist Kelson joining).

Photobucket Photobucket British Sea Power - Komedia // 23rd & 24th February 2011 The fact that a second date had to be booked to fulfil demand says a lot about British Sea Power as a band. Pretty much a home town show for the indie rock legends, touring following the release of their critically acclaimed fifth studio album Valhalla Dancehall, these will be two incredible evenings of live music.

Photobucket Photobucket British Sea Power – The Waterfront // 21st February 2011 British Sea Power are experts at, as comedian David O’ Doherty would say, “rocking your world in a quite a gentle way”. This gentle form of rebellion has led them to plot a couple of upcoming one-off shows in libraries chosen by fans, in protest of widespread library closures and cuts. In the meantime, though, catch them on one of the last dates of their UK tour while material from their newest album, Valhalla Dancehall, is still fresh.

Photobucket Photobucket James Blake - Band on the Wall // 26th February 2011 As runner up in the BBC’s ‘sound of 2011’ poll, it would be hard, and possibly foolish, to avoid James Blake. Whether this is to enjoy the fresh new talent selected for you, or to mock the BBC’s choice, is personal choice. But, if the BBC is to be believed, he is only going to get bigger over the coming year. Blake will be bringing his low key, understated electronic sound to the charmingly intimate Band on the Wall, so go judge your nation’s runner up for yourself.
