Gig Guide Junip

Junip – The Gate // 10th September 2011

After cancelling a show earlier in the year due to illness, Jose Gonzalez is back with band Junip. Add to that support from Woodpigeon, that the show is housed in the majestic Gate venue, and that it falls on a Saturday - this is any folk fan’s dream.

Gig Guide The Bluetones

The Bluetones – O2 ABC // 11th September 2011

There’s a right mixture of all sorts this week, and a lot of very good indeed. However, the 90s indie-pop kid in me kind of liked The Bluetones back in the day, so I don’t see why anyone else shouldn’t. This is their Farewell tour so this really is the last chance you’ll get to see them. Click here to buy tickets

Gig Guide Kurt Vile

Kurt Vile – The Fleece // 7th September 2011

Kurt Vile’s fourth full-length album – Smoke Ring For My Halo – will undoubtedly be towards the top-end of the majority of 2011’s end of year lists and his live shows are thought of as equally special. With support from Woods this should be an excellent night.
