What else is there to say about this young lady who has single-handedly made gospel cool? She headlines a sell out tour hitting most towns this month and with her effortless style and performance prowess it will no doubt be worth a look.

Thursday 1st October: Laura Gibson, Peasant and Steve Abel, Café Oto, London
Celebrate the arrival of a new month with Portland autumnal songstress, Gibson. We’re still stuck on Beasts Of Season after catching her instore earlier this month. Her album launch sees her headline a Dalston night with Pennsylvania-based singer Peasant and mesmerising NZ singer songwriter, Abel.
Friday 2nd October: Stricken City, Pure Groove, London
We’re extra excited about this instore as we’ll be chatting to the band beforehand. Stricken City’s catchy post-punk pop has made them a fixture on our shuffle.
Nine-piece (including two drummers) brass band Hackney Colliery Band, traditional African beats of Kasai Masai and reggae dub outfit, One Drop provide the musical element of this night supporting asylum seekers and migrants threatened with deportation.
