Hottest Gigs
Hottest Gigs 18/09/18

This week we’ve got some absolute belters lined up for you! From the far-off lands of Scotland to some of the freshest young names of indie and internet hits of years gone by. This week we have a little something for everyone.

So whether you’re looking for vocals to knock your socks off or just something to give you a little bit of feel-good nostalgia, buckle up because here are this week’s hottest gigs.

Biffy Clyro
Tuesday 18th of September
St David’s Hall, Cardiff

Starting off this week with a bang are Kilmarnock‘s very own shirtless rockers, Biffy Clyro. This time around, however, rather than offering head-banging hit after hit, the band are stepping back and performing a more stripped back version of their tracks in an MTV Unplugged session.

Tickets are going fast, and with only a few hours remaining before the gig, I’d get to buying if I were you.

Spring King
Wednesday 19th of September
St Luke’s, Glasgow

Macclesfield indie-rock fourpiece, and ICM favourites; Spring King grace this week’s Hottest Gigs as one of the shows I’m perhaps most excited for.

High octane energy and sing along anthems can be an absolute certainty for your Wednesday night if you manage to get your hands on tickets for this phenomenal show. So if you think that you’ll be able to keep up with these guys, why not check out Spring King as they take shit up a notch at St Luke’s this week.

The Midnight Beast
Thursday 20th of September
Manchester Academy 3

For the most part, I threw this in for a laugh and to shake things up a little. The majority of acts this week fall into the indie or the rock genre, but sometimes you might just fancy a night of laughs instead.

Obviously, they aren’t exactly the most indie of acts, but with all the miserable and scary shit going on in the news recently, I feel as if something not too serious could perhaps take the edge off a little.
So if satire and the odd cheesy spoof or the odd dance routine are your bread and butter, why not kick your shoes off and give this unconventional gig a go.

Fizzy Blood
Friday 21st of September
Boston Music Room, London

Having been covered by ICM a number of times, we’re sure as hell no strangers when it comes to Fizzy Blood. Hot off the heels of their third EP, Pink Magic, the Leeds lads have returned by wading into more unfamiliar waters with the exploration of a new transitional era as a band.

Some may read those words with trepidation, but one thing is for sure; it truly is an exciting time to be a fan of Fizzy Blood.

Saturday 22nd of September
02 Academy Sheffield

With a career spanning over 20 years, Halestorm have risen up the ranks to become an absolute force to be reckoned with in the world of rock and alternative music.

Between the pure unadulterated power of Lzzy Hale’s vocals (Yes it’s spelt without the “i”), and the earth-shattering wails of the electric guitars, Halestorm are pure rock royalty, and promise to leave you desperately begging for more once they’re through with you.

The Magic Gang
Sunday 23rd of September
Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh

Originally from The New Forest (Same), the beloved Magic Gang just can’t seem to stop branching out onto bigger and better things.

Already with a number of successful accolades under their belts, the fourpiece are now set to bring their much-anticipated self-titled album to The Liquid Rooms this Sunday.

So if you’re a lover of breezy honest rock with a laid-back attitude, I suggest you make your way down to Edinburgh too.

Where to find tickets:

The Night Cafe
Monday 24th of September
Thekla, Bristol

Last and by no means least is The Night Cafe. With their crowning gem of a track; Mixed Signals in hand along with the colourful youthful exuberance and charm that has caused them to gradually become a household name, I can’t think of a more perfect act to end on.

These guys frankly have everything that you could ever want from an indie band, and the stage presence to deliver upon it every single gig. So why not see it for yourself?

Where to find tickets:

So whether you feel in the mood for hair-raising rock, bouncy indie anthems or ridiculous spoofs, you can find it all here in this week’s Hottest gigs, so take your pick of what you fancy.
