Monday 17th August
The XX and Trailer Trash Traceys
Hoxton Hall, London
Prepare to ponder life’s big questions against a white noise soundtrack from melancholic pop rockers, The xx, who are cornering the market with their sterling recent debut LP release and newcomers Trailer Trash Traceys.
Tuesday 18th August
Pearl Jam and Gomez
O2 Arena, London
Some say we’re due nu-grunge as a genre?! Whether this be the case or not, a bit of nostalgic singing along to Pearl Jam, from behind your greasy fringe never goes out of style. Feel free to be less enthusiastic about their support, Gomez.
Wednesday 19th August
The Garage, London
Canadian electro-bleepists, Junior Boys, fulfil a demand for the intellectual and underground whilst producing a tune that the best of us can tap our toes to.
Thursday 20th August
Animal Collective and Gang Gang Dance
Brixton Academy, London
Ahead of headlining Green Man (look out for the festival review next week) this weekend, the epically fantastic Animal Collective are kind enough to treat London to one of their amazing live outings. With NYC art-noisers Gang Gang Dance – genius programming!
Friday 21st August
Beach House, Vetiver and The Papercuts
Union Chapel, London
Lush girl-boy Baltimore duo, Beach House fill this church venue with their spine chillingly beautiful pop, and with the equally atmospheric Vetiver and The Papercuts on the bill, you’ll be sure to have a spiritual experience.
Saturday 22nd August
Duke Garwood and The Ladywoodsmen, The Exploits of Elaine and Sixtoes
Café Oto, London
Sunday 23rd August
Alabama 3, Kate Miller-Heidke and Sam Lewis
Open Air Theatre, London
Provided the weather is grand, this should be a fine weekend closer with A3 providing swamp rock, bluegrass, Aussie alt songstress Miller-Heidke pulling up the pop corner and Nashville’s Lewis sprinkling some country-soul.
