Live music is great. Paying through the nose for it… not so much. So here are this week’s best cheap-but-good London gigs. Enjoy!
Mixing up post-punk and Britpop, Superfood are the latest stars of the Birmingham indie scene which spawned Swim Deep, Peace and Jaws. Wednesday August 6. £5.
Four posey Manc lads perform dreamy, funky house-pop with falsetto vocals and obvious chart ambition. It’s all performed live too – no loops here. No vowels, either. Friday August 8. £6.
Brilliantly upbeat garage rock that nods cheekily to The Strokes and Queens Of The Stone Age. Wednesday August 6. £5.
Missed out on Blink-182 tickets? This lot mine the same nostalgic punk seam. Monday August 11. £3.
The young Londoner brings his winsome, lo-fi guitar pop out of the bedroom and on to the stage. Sunday August 10. Free!
