Another month gone, another addition of Hottest Gigs. August has finally drawn to a close, meaning that we’re fast approaching my favourite time of year.
The temperature may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean we’re gonna go cold on you!
Keep yourself warm by getting yourself moving at one of these exceptional gigs; and have we got some absolute belters for you this week!
Tuesday 4th of September
Festival Theatre Edinburgh
Garbage celebrating a career spanning twenty four years, Garbage are back and this time with the kickass likes of Honeyblood as support.
2018 marks twenty years on since their Grammy nominated album 2.0 was released, making it a perfect time to take that album back on the road. Here’s to 20 years paranoid!
Wednesday 5th of September
Chances are you’ve definitely heard of this band, but might not even realise it- After all, they’re responsible for the electrifying 2001 hit ‘Danger! High Voltage’, and the infamous ‘Gay Bar’
Whilst this might seem a bit of a peculiar suggestion, but hear me out, how much of a laugh does it sound to sing along with a crowded room to the likes of ‘Danger’ with a few mates aster a couple of drinks?
Thursday 6th of September
The Eagle Inn, Salford
From the far off reaches of America comes the energetic sounds of Vista Kicks. The Sacramento bunch have captured my heart with their lively brand of rock, and I’ve become utterly obsessed with their track Marceline (No, not just because of Adventure Time’s bass toting vampire queen)
These guys are a band that I’m definitely going to be keeping a close eye on from now on, and I suggest that you do too. If you fancy a sure-fire way to finish your Thursday with a sensational bang, I suggest you get on buying tickets to see these lads soon as possible.
Friday 7th of September
Whilst ‘Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino’ proved to be rather divisive amongst fans and some critics alike, it’s undeniable that Arctic Monkeys have a certain something special about them when it comes to their onstage presence and fan energy.
The last time I saw these guys perform was way back in 2014 at reading Festival during the height of their AM era, and it was truly something else. I’m more than positive that they won’t fail to deliver this time either.
Saturday 8th of September
From humble beginnings arises something truly special in the form of deeply intelligent songwriting and some truly raw tracks.
Inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Macleod selves into reflective storytelling to produce heartfelt and intriguing indie folk

Monday 10th if September
The Haunt, Brighton
Denmark quartet promise more than solely stylised punk rock. With each album they release, they constantly prove themselves as more than competent artists gradually exploring a more eclectic sound, not to mention their prowess as performers.
