MONDAY 20th JANUARY
NIGHT & DAY: 8-11PM
The rather remote John o’Groats doesn’t exactly scream psychedelic indie – but that’s exactly what sun-drenched and melodic 6 piece Neon Waltz are kicking the week off with at Night & Day.
TUESDAY 21st JANUARY
With latest album Jessica Rabbit filled with enough distorted noise-pop to blow your eardrums, raucous American duo Sleigh Bells make a return to Gorilla after a three year absence. Supports Dream Wife are also really not to be missed.
WEDNESDAY 22nd FEBRUARY
THE JIM JIMS (supporting Calvadore)
OLD PINT POT: 8-11PM
If you thrive off stumbling upon the latest unheard gems, then let me introduce The Jim Jims – a local foursome so fresh they only have one song online. Jangly guitars and glockenspiels makes the lo-fi ‘As They Seem’ ridiculously catchy; catch their second ever gig at The Old Pint Pot on Wednesday.
THURSDAY 23rd FEBRUARY
DEAF INSTITUTE: 7-11PM
They’ve just been announced for Dot to Dot, and 2016’s Cardinal went down a storm; chances are you’re already well-acquainted with Pinegrove if you’re a fan of country-tinged emo rock. They hit up Deaf Institute on Thursday to bring their American sound to your Mancunian ears.
FRIDAY 24th FEBRUARY
FALLOW CAFE: 7-11PM
Expect nothing less than fab pop-punk tunes from Watford quartet Nervus, whose debut Permanent Rainbow can be described as one of the best underground emo albums of last year. They play Fallow Café on Friday with a stellar support lineup of Sibling, Young Conservatives and Grotbags. Don’t miss out.
SATURDAY 25th FEBRUARY
SOUP KITCHEN: 7-10PM
Floridian duo Tonstartssbandht are as eclectic as they come; composed of brothers Ed and Andy White (ex Mac Demarco), their mismatched, lo-fi vibes mirror the geographical distance between the pair. Head down to Soup Kitchen on Saturday to catch the best gig there as of late. By the way – it’s pronounced tahn-starts-bandit.
SUNDAY 26th FEBRUARY
DEAF INSTITUTE: 7-10PM
Dream-pop connoisseur Jack Tatum aimed to “create another world” with 2016’s Life of Pause – and it would be wrong to disagree. Rich and expansive, confident and experimental, Wild Nothing bring their latest masterpiece to life at Deaf on Sunday – ending this week’s gig picks with a bang.
