5 Sheffield gigs you may not know about this week
Queens Social Club // November 5 // £8
Local trio, Baba Naga bring their shamanistic “inner energy” to Queens this Saturday following a tour of the UK which includes London, Leeds and Nottingham. After the success of their Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, Drenge) produced EP back in February, the band has been sending audiences into a “moody, sickening high without narcotics.” With support from Logs.
Bungalows & Bears // November 2 // Free
Cardiff-based quartet Tibet hit B&B this Wednesday for a free gig, bringing their psychedelic yet poppy sound straight from a summer of festival appearances including Reading & Leeds, Isle of Wight and the Great Escape. With two members of the band being brothers it’s no wonder they’ve been described as “a Kinks for the 3rd millennium!”
The Rocking Chair // November 3 // £6
Following a headline tour of the UK in October, Manchester based quartet, Lake Komo bring their “mysterious, illusive yet seductive pop music” to the Rocking Chair for a final date before they polish off their debut album in the studio. With Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar et al.) on production duties, it’s sure to make a splash in 2017, don’t miss out.
Plug // November 5 // £9
With the release of their 16th studio album Bamboo Diner in the Rain due on November 11th, the Wave Pictures are heading out on a 45 show headline tour of Europe to promote their bluesy rock and roll. Self-confessed haters of “robot music”, this London based trio are flying the flag for the guitar without being “retro”, a challenge few manage to achieve in today’s rock landscape.
Leadmill // October 31 // £9 *SOLD OUT*
Drenge have temporarily abandoned their third album studio sessions in favour of a one off Halloween extravaganza at the Leadmill for those lucky enough to snap up a ticket. Do not miss this rare chance to catch one of the UK’s best punk/rock bands thrash it out free from the shackles of record promotion, no doubt the set list will be hit-heavy! Support comes from Leeds’ busiest exorcists, Menace Beach and Logs.
