Three, free gigs this week. Stoic folk, head-bashing badassery, plus a lil bit of everything by the river. x


This Fri everyone’s favourite wise, stoic God of Folk returns to Rough Trade. Yurrrp JIMI MACK is back, bringing his old-school Folk vibes mixed with a bunch of influences from some of the finest musicians of the past few decades. Plus he’s got a brand new single ‘Run to the Sun’, which you’ll obvs be able to hear on the night. 

Supporting is the multi-talented ninja in CAIUS BURNS. Ya may recognise him from bossing everyting w/ KAGOULE, but this is his solo project where he slows things down a bit, and sings everything from lovely… love songs, to acoustic fantasy epics. Ya have to see it to get it… and you’ll be obsessed.

Nino’s Blue Saloon from Lancaster are also supporting.

Eureka is back at Albert’s (yes, the old Spanky’s, RIP), and this week brings a proper awesome – proper eclectic lineup. 

Kicking things off are the Pop SUPERSTARS in SAN JUNIPERO. Absolute beasts at writing a mega pop beast that should be dominating charts all over the world. Which – in that intimate spot downstairs, will be proper tastyyyyy. MARTY are up next – with their Pop-infused Indie sounds – which, whilst experimental, still has all the bits and bobs that ya love about your favourite Indie playlists. 

Finally, headlining are SUPER FURNITURE, the kinda Math-Rock-y, kinda Indie-y, kinda All-Over-The-Place (in a good way) four-piece. Chaotic on stage, and full of melodies and breakdowns that will 1000% make you wish ya never gave up being in a  band when you were 14.

Nottingham’s legendary Riverside Festival returns this weekend – meaning ya can get some candy floss, have a gander at our beaut Trent, also seduce those tabs of yours w/ a bunch of ace Notts music.

As ever – there’s a bunch of stages and many doses of awesomeness. Friday ya can see the Bluesy badassery of JONNY OLLEY, the Soul-Pop sauce of MOLLIE RALPH + more. And on the Sat – everything from the Pop-bliss of HOLLY FALLON, through to the Indie sickness of SCOTT BUGG & THE VITAL FEW. Well worth the 0p.
