Gig Guide The Moth & the Mirror

The Moth & The Mirror – Captain’s Rest // 2nd September 2011

This one was very-nearly-almost trumped by PJ Harvey this week, but The Moth & The Mirror won in the end. How could they not? Comprised of “five and a half people” (apparently) from Arab Strap, Frightened Rabbit and Admiral Fallow, and others… well, I’ve never been so excited before 10am on a Saturday before. See you there, right?

Gig Guide The Pooh Sticks

The Pooh Sticks – The Globe // 3rd September 2011

Cardiff will be split into two on this Saturday night, with fans of the dark and electronic off to catch DJ Shadow whilst the rest (okay, that’s optimistic…) will be at The Globe, to witness The Pooh Sticks’ first Cardiff performance in over 20 years. The band formed in Swansea in the late 80s and are regarded legends of the jangly, indie pop scene despite also being known for making a mockery of it. If you don’t personally know of their music, I’d put a few quid on your favourite bands knowing who they are.

    Gig Guide Rizzle Kicks

    Rizzle Kicks – Green Door Store // 31st August 2011

    Having seen second single ‘Down With The Trumpets’ peak at number 8 in the UK singles chart, Brighton’s Rizzle Kicks are riding something of an unexpected commercial wave. If big, fun hip-hop is your thing, then be sure to head to the excellent Green Door Store. Support comes from the buoyant nine-piece Boycom who are sure to warm the crowd up a treat.

    Gig Guide MeMe – The Fleece // 2nd September 2011

    After ten years of inactivity, the once-touted by the NME as 'Bristol’s best band' Me are returning for a one-off show at The Fleece. Although John Peel and Mark Radcliffe were fans of their psychedelic sound, and though the band has been cited as an inspiration for Radiohead around the time of OK Computer, Me never quite got the mass wider attention that they perhaps deserved. Go show them a good time.

      Gig Guide Smiling Ivy

      Frogstock – The Frog and Parrot // 29th August 2011

      In an otherwise slow week, The Frog and Parrot puts together its annual showcase of local talent over bank holiday weekend, made all the better by its lack of an entry fee.
