Sometimes our promoter friends gear up for such an excellent spring/summer season we can’t help but highlight our upcoming favourites.
DHP have so much coming up from rising star Gus Dapperton at Heaven to newcomer Arlo Day at Bermondsey Social Club, to none other than Liz Phair heading up Islington Assembly Hall (be quick on that one). We’re here to guide you through some of our London highlights, stick on the playlist and get plotting your next gig tickets.
Just announced but already we are in PURE AWE of the Mirrors line-up, the fact that there’s more to come might just be too much. Phoebe Bridgers? American Football? Swoon. Taking over the Roundhouse, Camden Assembly and Dingwalls for a full day of stunning music, we are so in. Book Quick.
Moth Club – 22nd August
Longtime London in Stereo faves Yeasayer are back and the best news? Not only do they have their absolutely massive bangers from 2010’s Oddblood but we’ve been super taken with new single ‘Fluttering In The Floodlights’ so expect nothing less than a total party.
Borderline – 29th May
Miya Folick gets it, her fiercely poignant lyrics cut straight to the core, where if you ask us, they belong. Marrying a beautiful intensity in tracks like ‘Deadbody’ with a pop sensibility on ‘Stop Talking’ this show is going to be a rollercoaster of emotions.
BIKINI KILL + BIG JOANIE
O2 Academy Brixton – 10th & 11th June
We’d be surprised if you had missed the news that game-changing, legendary punk group Bikini Kill are back for a handful of very special shows. Not only that but they have London in Stereo favourite Big Joanie supporting, don’t miss this thrilling ride of crushing guitars and electric energy.
Printworks – 5th March 2020
Gonna be honest, news of Tycho’s return was a total joy over in the London in Stereo office. The dreamy way he combines electronic sounds an an overwhelmingly natural feel is a complete wonder. We’re more than a bit excited to see what he does with a venue as stunningly cavernous as Printworks.
ROSE ELINOR DOUGALL
Oslo – 28th May
We challenge you to find a sweeter record this year than Rose Elinor Dougall’s A New Illusion. That’s not to say it doesn’t hide a gritty realness at its centre, she just has a magical way of enchanting us with her stunning vocal.
