Ty Segall – Green Door Store // 1st August 2012

Californian psychedelic garage rocker Ty Segall has been releasing albums at a prolificrate, he’s just released his second album of 2012 and there’s promise of a third hitting record shelves before the year is up. Quite how he’s managing to find the time to tour is beyond me, but with a wealth of fuzzed up new tracks to choose fromWednesday’s show at the Green Door Store promises to be a full throttle, garage rock workout.

We Are Scientists – The Deaf Institute // 31st July 2012

I can’t miss a We Are Scientists gig at such a nice venue. Venue really does matter do a gig, trust me! Expect the usual danceable indie tunes and a rather nice end to the month.

Savages – Thekla // 1st August 2012

London hypsters Savages are the next in a long line of bands tipped to be 'the next big thing'. With single 'Husbands' under their belt and garnering a decent level of praise, it might be that the hype could justify itself this time. I caught them briefly at Radio 1 Big Weekend, and they put on an impressive show to a crowd who were mainly trying to escape Ben Howard and Jessie J.

Strawberry Ocean Sea - Stereo// 3rd August 2012

SOS are pretty much everything you’d want from a rock band (minus the bad attitude, that is) and they make some pretty sweet music to boot.
