July Gig Round-Up
YOUR MONTHLY ROUND-UP OF THE BEST LATE NIGHT AND LIVE MUSIC OFFERINGS IN SHEFFIELD.
Leadmill // 20th July
Mr Scruff will take to the decks for a five-hour set to mark the official Tramlines opening party. This free event will see the DJ playing a genre-blending fusion of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house and reggae to name but a few.
Bungalows and Bears // 23rd July
Hailing from London, Brighton and Iceland, Dream Wife had an interesting start as a band, forming at first as a ‘fake girl band’ for an art project before realising their collective potential could work for real. There’s nothing ‘fake’ about their talents; as they take to the stage expect energetic guitar pop with all the attitude of Bananarama. Ones to watch indeed.
The Harley // 28th July
Leeds DJ Jack Wickham delivers groove-driven, hypnotic late night house and techno with his signature understated cool from behind the decks.
All Them Witches
Corporation // 22nd July
The Nashville rock band play Corp this month after the release of their new album,’Sleeping Through The War’, earlier this year. In their fifth year, the band deliver a heavy fusion of hard, blues and psychedelic rock.
Monkey Swallows the Universe
Sheffield City Hall // 28th July
Indie-folk five piece, Monkey Swallows the Universe, are reuniting this summer to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the release of their final album, ‘The Casket Letters’. Expect an unforgettable appearance from the Sheffield band.
The Standard Lamps
The Greystones // 25th July
Fresh off their tour supporting The Who, the rock trio offer a modern blues sound with nods to Dr Feelgood and The Jam. They will be playing songs from their latest album, released last year, ‘Long Lost Love’.
Woven Skull, Stef Ketteringham & Blue Yodel
Shakespeares //24th July
From the hypnotic, psychedelic sound of Irish trio, Woven Skull, to the emotionally charged, semi-improvised guitar arrangements of Stef Ketteringham, Shakespeares is hosting a night of music like no other.
