Herfest 2019 will be celebrating female-identifying musicians in Leeds on Saturday. It’s free but best to get a ticket in advance as the bill features Calva Louise, The Orielles, Dilettante and more. Womxn in music are also being celebrated at the Boudica Festival in Coventry on the 19, including music from Ghum, Los Bitchos, Pretty Vile and lots of others.
There’s a tonne of music in Norwich this weekend because of the Wild Paths Festival. A highlight looks like it’ll be the Karma Kafe on Saturday, where Beach Riot, Gaffa Tape Sandy, SuperGlu and more are due to play.
Not sure what it is with festivals this week but there is also BadPond in London, featuring The Physics House Band, Palm Reader, CLT DRP and other good stuff.
I’m so glad that there’s a band called Fatberg. I’m also glad that they will be playing alongside Cherry Pickles and Black Mekon at the Shacklewell Arms on Thursday.
Fatberg are also supporting when Fabricators release their Apocalypse Noodles EP on Friday at Off The Cuff. Free entry.
Things will be getting loud at Moth Club on Saturday with music from Bad Breeding, The Cool Greenhouse and Subdued.
Celebrate 15 years of Hyperdub at Village Underground on Friday with Kode9, Lee Gamble, DJ Spinn and more.
Free entry at the Old Blue Last on Friday for Guru, Social Contract and The Shuks.

Good things in Glasgow on Saturday with a double venue all-dayer. Acts include Yowl, bdrmm, The Vanities and lots of others.
