What’s on this week: Gig Picks
Check out our gig picks of some of the best live listings from across Sheffield, coming up over the next week and early October.
O2 Academy // October 1
Billed as one of 2015’s festival seasons buzziest new bands, Black Country duo God Damn are heading to the O2 Academy for a rip-roaring set complete with their signature riff-rock, promising a lively and very sweaty one.
Jackmaster & Doorly
O2 Academy 2 // October 1
Muzik have linked up with Doorly for the first instalment of Doorly and Friends Sheffield, kicking off Snowbombing with the man himself, Jackmaster. Instrumental in unleashing output from the likes of Jamie XX, Spencer, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Mosca and Randomer to name just a few, Jackmaster has held down residencies at Circo Loco and DC10 in Ibiza, so it’s not one to be missed.
Leadmill // October 5
They may be Essex boys, but don’t let that fool you. Hi-def bluesy rockers The Bohicas have serious stage presence and catchy tunes to boot, and this is your chance to catch them on the verge of blowing up. Support comes from Seize The Chair, Hot Soles and The Sonik Seeds. Get down early for a showcase of some serious local talent!
Plug // October 3
Ditching indie disco for synth pop, The Wombats made a triumphant return earlier this year with ‘Glitterbug’, an album full of songs documenting lead singer Murph’s love affair with Los Angeles. Check ’em out at Plug to see The Wombats do what they do best.
The Harley // October 9
Former Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci frontman Euros Childs returns to The Harley bringing plenty of tunes in what he describes as “pop music with a bit of folk music thrown in, sometimes synthesizers are used, sometimes pianos or guitars. But it’s always rock n roll”.
The Washington // October 2
Tetsuo describe themselves as alternative rock, but they’ve been labelled as everything from grunge to indie to post-rock to “a bit Deftones-y”, so you really ought to check ‘em out and decide for yourselves.
