TMB’s Gigs of the Week: 03.07.17 – 09.07.17

MONDAY 3rd JULY

AIRWAYS
SOUND CONTROL: 19:00–23:00
TICKETS

From supporting heavy hitters Nothing But Thieves and Sunset Sons to headlining their first full-blown UK tour earlier this year, Peterborough quartet Airways are furiously establishing a name for themselves. With BBC Introducing hot on their heels, this four aren’t to be missed by any Arctic Monkeys/Kasabian lovers out there.

TUESDAY 4th JULY

RADIOHEAD
EMIRATES OLD TRAFFORD: 17:00–22:30
TICKETS

Their Glastonbury performance was a certified killer; now, Radiohead have decided to take their OK Computer-dominated set national. As the original dates have been rescheduled from Manchester Arena following recent tragic events, you still have a chance to snap up the last remaining tickets if you’re lucky.

WEDNESDAY 5th JULY

itoldyouiwouldeatyou w/ SIBLING & POSSUM
BRUDENELL SOCIAL CLUB (LEEDS): 19:30–23:00
TICKETS

Moody and mellow, innovative and emotional, itoldyouiwouldeatyou are an outfit that’s expanded from Joey Ashworth’s bedroom project into a six-member strong rising star of the UK’s math rock scene. Check them out before they head abroad for their first European tour this summer; with sick support slots from post-rock/pop group Sibling and local lads Possum, it’s a night not to be missed.

THURSDAY 6th JULY

FOREVER CULT w/ JEKYLL & BOY GENIUS
THE CASTLE HOTEL: 19:30–23:00
TICKETS

You can get grooving to one of THE hottest Leeds bands this Thursday- because Forever Cult are coming to town. Signed to ace indie label Clue Records (Allusondrugs/TRASH/Avalanche Party), thumping basslines and scuzz-infused guitars have earned Forever Cult mass appreciation. Put your pre-orders in for the Homewrecker EP, out July 7th, now.

FRIDAY 7th JULY

COLD WAR KIDS w/ GENGAHR & BAD SEA
O2 RITZ: 19:00–23:00
TICKETS

American indie legends Cold War Kids return to the UK for the first time in four years, in support of their critically-acclaimed sixth studio album LA Divine. The lineup is completed with the additions of dreamy London quartet Gengahr and Dublin duo Bad Sea – two simply unmissable supports.

SATURDAY 8th JULY

THE ORIELLES
NIGHT & DAY CAFE: 20:00–23:00
TICKETS

Heavenly Recordings’s latest DIY act, The Orielles are a thrashing Halifax outfit who have molded their Sonic Youth/Pixies influences into their own personal blend of 90’s infused guitar-pop. Infectiously catchy and repeatedly featured on “Breakthrough Artist” lists, catch the West Yorkshire trio at Night & Day before they’re selling out venues twice that size.

SUNDAY 9th JULY

BEACH SLANG
THE ALMA INN (BOLTON): 19:00–23:00
TICKETS

Probably the biggest surprise of the week, established Pennsylvanian punk-rockers Beach Slang are hitting Bolton this Sunday. You read that right – Bolton. You can catch the quartet over at The Alma Inn, where the smaller venue will almost certainly house one of the most ferocious gigs of the quartet’s July European tour.
