October Gigs Round-up
Here’s a round-up of some of the best gigs happening in Sheffield this month…
O2 Academy // 6 Oct // £28.65
A lynchpin of the grime scene, British hip-hop extraordinaire and one of the finest lyricists in the game, the fire on Dizzee Rascal’s fourth album Raskit has shown that he doesn’t intend on slowing down with age.
Café Totem // 8 Oct // £7
Formed as a reaction to stagnation in the music industry the alt-synth-pop duo began as a more folksy affair and have evolved into something which feels very contemporary. Kaye McGill’s voice lends itself to delicate lyrics which Dan Broadley’s electric keyboard is careful to compliment.
Foundry // 12 Oct // £20.35 (Adv)
After dropping the acclaimed You’ll Never Make A Million From Grime EP early this year, the high energy rapper brings his I Win tour to the Steel City this month.
The Greystones // 19th Oct // £13
This five -piece set brings their unique brand of folk to Sheffield. Influenced by European folk traditions they are known for their often intense live shows which are at turns touching and brimming with an anarchic energy.
Sheffield City Hall // 26 Oct // from £32.50
Formed in London, 1974, the writing partnership of Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook produced some of the best melodic pop of the late 70s and early 80s with noteable hits ‘Cool for Cats’ and ‘Up the Junction’. They are currently working on a new album for 2017.
Clean Cut Kid
The Leadmill // 27 Oct // £10
After the release of their debut album Felt earlier this year, Liverpool’s favourite, energetic pop quartet are heading to The Leadmill at the end of the month.
