RIP summer, you looked so strong and mighty in June and showed flashes of what could have been over the bank holiday weekend but overall the weather sucked and it’s good that Autumn is finally here. No doubt it’ll be boiling hot for the whole of September just to fuck with us a bit more.

Rolling Blackouts Costal Fever

+ Creme

4th September

“Rip-roaring tracks that move by their own logic, any one of which could be a single and all of which leave you wanting more in the best way possible” – Pitchfork, 8.0 review rating

“Rolling Blackouts C.F. make the kind of crisp, unfussy rock music that’s been all too absent in recent years.” – Stereogum

Margaret Glaspy

“Margaret Glaspy writes canny songs and delivers them with lean, bluesy understatement.”
NY Times

“She’s pure American muscle. Guitars snarl and spit, stares are deep and wise…”

“A mesh of tight rhythms, swinging guitar grooves, and smoothly sailing vocals.”
The Line of Best Fit


Get Inuit

7th September

The boldness, confidence and manic fervour Get Inuit display on stage is a result of months fine-tuning their live show supporting the likes of Slaves, Spring King, VANT and The Magic Gang.

+ Bryde

12th September

Making spiky, dramatic pop music, Banfi’s first official shot across the bows ‘Where We Part’ was posted on Soundcloud in April 2015, which led to the band signing with Communion Records. 2016 was spent in the studio recording their debut album with producer Richard Wilkinson (Bombay Bicycle Club, Honne, Kaiser Chiefs) and the first release from these sessions, Happy When You Go, is out now!


Our Girl

13th September

Brighton trio, Our Girl jump into 2017 with a string of highly praised releases under their belt, including last year’s debut EP ‘Normally’ released via Cannibal Hymns (Dream Wife, Abattoir Blues). They will headline The Lexington on 13th September, their biggest London headline show to date.



+ C.A.R

15th September

After selling out Moth Club earlier this year Pop Noire’s Lescop brings his post-punk influenced electro-pop over from France for the night.


Ilk + Rocheman

16th September

An exciting collaborative event featuring new signings from Accidental Records and NXRecords.
London-based art pop experimentalists Ilk have teamed up with acclaimed composer and producer Matthew Herbert on their debut album, ‘Y U’, exploring the space in which found-sound recordings and infectious pop music coexist.

The first sound to be shared is the eponymously named track ‘Y U’. As if tuning into a lost 1970’s sci-fi broadcast, the album’s lead single then takes you on a mad four minute lo-fi adventure of surreal lyrics, hypnotic distorted sounds, polyrhythmic layers of kitchen sink percussion and homemade thumb pianos. ‘Y U’ is a bold and joyous introduction to the world of Ilk.


Blue Orchids

+ Band Of Holy Joy + The Bitter Springs

17th September

Margin walkers and midnight drifters, Band of Holy Joy have wandered liminal landscapes of their own making for 3 decades now. The weirdness and wildness of the landscape they stagger through, the askew vision like a crash between Coleridge, Brecht and David Peace, the literary allusions and poetry, the strangeness of it all. A cultural piracy raiding doomed melancholy and gentrified mediocrity.

Blue Orchids have just released their latest album, The Once And Future Thing, which shows Martin Bramah’s songwriting to be as strong and diverse as ever, from the powerful opener “Good Day to Live” to the delicate and sensitive “Rosy Hours” and the twisted English city blues of “Motorway.” Backing Bramah live is a new band comprising John Paul Moran (Monochrome Set/Rapid Pig) on keyboards and Vince Hunt (A Witnes/Inca Babiess) on bass. They’ll be performing a set filled with classics from the group’s entire catalogue. The current dates mark a long-overdue return to the stage for Bramah and his mesmerising, shamanic performances.

The Bitter Springs are an English rock group from the London suburb of Teddington. The band evolved from Last Party, who had formed in 1985, with the name changing in 1996. The band have released two albums as Last Party, and six as The Bitter Springs and also played with Vic Godard as Subway Sect, on and off for nine years.


Lazy Day

21st September

Lazy Day are a dream-grunge quartet from London – and this is their biggest ever headline show to date. With the launch of the debut EP and first ever UK tour, expect this to be a big night. Support comes from Brighton’s Thyla.

22nd September

They are confident wielders who make thoughtful and angry pop music that is heavy with riffs but punchy and danceable.

Live, they are an impressive force, with a gang-like mentality which leaves no one on the fence. Of course, they love the pop hooks of Fleetwood Mac and Paul Simon that they brazenly reference, but the intricacies are fun to unravel too; Savages, The Birthday Party, PJ Harvey, The Breeders…

Graceland have gathered their strength from these artists and the strong independent women around them to form an unapologetic, unique and addictive musical bond.



24th September

Chris is a founder member of Sharks. As an acknowledged master of the guitar he has played with a diverse array of talent through the years including: Tom Waits, The Wombles, Bryan Ferry, The Ventures, Paulo Nutini, John Cale, Katie Melua, Paul McCartney, Robert Gordon, Jack Bruce and Elton John.

Steve is a founder member of Sharks. When the band folded he then spent 3 years touring and recording with drum legend Ginger Baker. Parsons released two solo albums in the late seventies then retired from performance in 1982. He spent the next 25 years working in the worlds of television and film. Many of his composer/ director/writer/producer credits can be found on IMDB.
In 2011 he decided to sing again and formed the band King Mob. Parsons is currently working with Swans guitarist Kristof Hahn on an original podcast series entitled: The California Death Ray.

Nick joined Sharks on keyboards following the departure of Andy Fraser. After Sharks he joined the Andy Fraser band which released one album. He has been a teacher of music for many years but has found time to pursue solo projects and play live with artists such as Frankie Miller, Brian Eno and, more recently, Lee Thompson of Madness.

Previously played drums with Spedding, Steve and Tosh in the band Presence Ldn. You can hear him on the track ‘Swirl’ on Sharks ‘Killers of the Deep’ album.

Tosh is a bass player with a distinctive look and sound. He was a founder member of the science fiction influenced heavy metal band Slaves to Gravity. They released 2 albums on the SPV label. In 2012 he replaced Glenn Matlock in the King Mob beat group. He has continued to perform and record with Parsons and Spedding ever since. Tosh is a Japanese national who has been resident in London for the last 17 years.


Jen Cloher

25th September

Jen Cloher is the culmination of a period of artistic and personal growth in which the artist took her rightful place as the punk-rock figurehead of Melbourne’s famous DIY music scene. The NIDA Graduate is an outspoken advocate for artist rights and the co-founder of the incredible Milk! Records label (Courtney Barnett, Loose Tooth, Fraser A. Gorman, Jade Imagine, East Brunswick All Girls Choir). Cloher’s fascinating life-story and compelling political voice is enough justification to pay her attention, but it’s the music that will have you returning again and again.


Michael Nau

26th September

Releasing his first album under his own name last year, Nau’s new collection of twelve songs represents some of his most sharp and moving work to date, and finds the Maryland-born songwriter looking to move quickly enough to avoid some of the stop/start nature that had previously left large gaps of time falling between his output.

‘Some Twist’ will see its release on June 16th via Full Time Hobby. Overall, the album splits its time between feeling both energized and unhurried, while featuring the same penetrating songwriting that has led fans to latch onto Nau since he arrived.
