Don’t panic, there’s another bank holiday next Monday. For now, enjoy the best gigs for the week of 29 April – 5 May. Get noisy at The Social on Friday 3 May with the Iggy Pop-approved Birthday Girl, Mutes and Nothingheads. Goat Girl round out the evening with a DJ set. Free entry.
We don’t feature enough Russian darkwave, I hear you cry. Let me rectify that by pointing out that the always intriguing Shortparis finish their short European tour with shows in London and Liverpool this week.
For the very reasonable price of zero pounds, you can see the most excellent Dancehall alongside Muskets and High Praise at East Street Tap on Tuesday.
And another for our Brighton contingent: Cabbage are supported by The c33s at The Haunt on Friday 3 May.
Leeds’ own Drahla release their album Useless Coordinates at the Brudenell on Friday. Support from XAM Duo and The Shakamoto Investigation.
Get down to The Cavendish Arms on Saturday for a night of alternative rock, featuring Sinka, Boyfromthecrowd, Ryse and more.
For something a bit different, The Shacklewell Arms is hosting a vinyl playback event for Nine Inch Nail’s The Downward Spiral this Sunday.
