Festival season is basically done and we’re moving back into our dark underground rooms and the choice is overwhelming.

Slow Dance at Village Underground – Friday 2nd September
w/ Folly Group, Saint Jude, AYA, Glows, DJ Bus Replacement Service

A live and club music crossover show from one of the definitive platforms for alternative music in London over the last few years. With techno punk energy from Folly Group, innovative ambient pop from Saint Jude and heavier stuff from AYA and DJ Bus Replacement service guarenteed to bring a wonky end to the night.


Manchester Psych Fest – Saturday 3rd September
w/ Kurt Vile & The Violators, Black Midi, Tinariwen, Warmduscher, Gwenno, Hinds, The KVB, Scalping, Honeyglaze, Fake Turins

For the cool indie kids and their dads up in Manchester, perfect fodder for those who want to sit at a pub talking about all the bands they’ve seen that their friends have half heard of. At least now you don’t have to lie about seeing Mercury award nominee Gwenno… now just to work out who Fergus McCreadie is and you’ll be golden.


30/70 at Corsica Studios – Thursday 8th September

It’s electronic music and Jazz and yes half of the people there will probably be pretentious but if you’re still reading this then I may have some news for you… regardless they’re at the cutting edge of the Melbourne scene so very worth catching them while they’re in the UK.


Never Heard of Ya’s 3rd Birthday at Moth Club – Friday 9th September
w/ Film Noir, Vlure & more

The end of an era for one of the coolest promoters in London who’ll be calling it a day after three years of parties. In their classic style bringing together some London and Glasgow scenesters for some more of that music that’s called post-punk but isn’t really.


Obongjayar at Koko – Friday 30th September

Little Simz had just two features on her last album, one was Cleo Sol and the other was Obongjayar. If that’s not enough to convince you to see one of Nigeria’s finest exports to London then hyou may be lost. His 2020 project “Which Way is Forward” is a must hear and his masterpeice of a debut album sets him perfectly for the prestigious KOKO backdrop as he starts his tour.
