Hottest Gigs
Bands we lost in 2016 - Bombay Bicycle Club

The autumn and winter months are fast approaching, but don’t let the change of seasons get you down. Each week is another closer to Christmas and yet another dose of #HottestGigs. So why not sit back, pour yourself a nice hot chocolate and see what this week of gigs has in store for you.

Pale Waves
Tuesday 25th of September
02 Institute, Birmingham

Opinions on our first #HottestGigs may be divided to say the least, but there’s no denying that Television Romance and There’s Honey are a couple of great tracks.

I won’t say that their album was terribly awe-inspiring, but with Pale Waves being reviewed so much lately, what better time to see them live and decide on an opinion yourself- and don’t forget that you can leave user ratings of bands on our new site too. So what better time to utilise that tool as well.

Franz Ferdinand
Wednesday 26th of September
Roadhouse, London

There’s no arguing that Franz Ferdinand is a household name. Whether you know them from their pivotal track, take me out, or from one of their more recent releases such as ‘Glimpse of Love,’ you know that a show like this has a 100% chance of going off! So what are you waiting for? Get yourself some tickets now!

Against the Current
Thursday 27th of September
Riverside, Newcastle

Starting as a band that initially released covers on YouTube, Against the Current have grown considerably since their debut back in 2011.

Having seen them back in 2016 alongside All Time Low, I can tell you that Against the Current are definitely a lot of fun onstage, and that you’ll undoubtedly be singing along to their tunes well after the show is over.

Where to find tickets:

Muncie Girls
Friday 28th of September
Rock City- The Basement, Nottingham

Whilst the vocals may not be for everyone initially, these guys are definitely something that grows on you.

With hooks around every corner, and a sense of DIY punk rock – which is as charming as it is intriguing. Muncie Girls are a band worth getting excited for, and I for one would love to see what comes next from the Exeter trio.

Where to find tickets:

Mallory Knox
Saturday 29th of September
The Anvil, Bournemouth

Cambridge lads and ‘Lighthouse’ experts, Mallory Knox will be imparting some of their nautical knowledge at The Anvil, Bournemouth on the 29th of this month.

After the departure of their lead vocalist; Mikey Chapman, some might have expected for the lads to feel a little lost at sea, but this couldn’t be further than the truth.

With bassist, Sam Douglas stepping up to the occasion, Mallory Knox may sound a little different, but I assure you that they remain as strong as ever.

Where to find tickets:

Sunday 30th of September
The Deaf Institute, Manchester

If slow melodic tracks accompanied by delicate harmonies is what you’re after, then look no further than S.Carey- or Sean Carey as that may sound more familiar.

With a history within the indie folk industry as the drummer of the well known indie folk band, Bon Iver it’s not surprising that Sean has released something with such a coherent and refined sound that seems so self-assured.

Where to find tickets:

Anna Calvi
Monday 1st of October
02 Ritz, Manchester

Distinguished, sultry and astute, Anna Calvi offers up something fresh and different as a deeply interesting sound, which separates itself apart from the rest of the artists on this week’s #HottestGigs

Whilst listening, you can’t help but get drawn into her vast body of work, and I imagine that the same runs true of her live shows also.
