We weren’t here to answer your Monday cries for live music options, but if you spotted a good gig yourself and would like to write a review to be published on this website then drop an email to Dan on [email protected].
We’ll begin on Tuesday with a lo-fi gig at Kraak. If your eardrums are grazed by the scything guitars on show then Lorelle Meets The Obsolete will be the band responsible.
One antidote for sound-grazed ears is more dulcet tones, provided at Soup Kitchen on Wednesday 9th by the slightly more harmonious lo-fi indie of Peggy Sue.
The bad news for Burning Hell fans is that their Thursday 10th show (and indeed the tour) has been cancelled due to a family emergency. But keep your eyes peeled for their return later in the year. Or, better still, keep your eyes on these blogs to find out when they’ll be back. For something a little different that night, why not try to post-punk veterans Dub Sex at Sound Control?
The Californian adopted Manc Jesca Hoop has gained plaudits from esteemed voices, such as Elbow ringleader Guy Garvey, and we wholeheartedly agree. Catch her latest show on Friday 11th at Deaf Institute.
There are a couple of prime targets for your internal SatNav on Saturday 12th. Set coordinates for Delia Derbyshire Day 2014 at the Anthony Burgess Foundation venue, where the aforementioned electronic music pioneer and original Dr Who soundtrack composer will be remembered by some of those she’s influenced.
Or detour to Sound Control, where local punk imprint TNS Records will be celebrating ten years of existence in their usual brash style, featuring bands such as Random Hand.
Check back in next week for more live music selections.
