Cheap thrills: great gigs this week for a tenner or less

Posted at 2:15 pm, May 12, 2015 in Arts & Entertainment

Feeling the pinch? Here are five cool London gigs this week that won’t leave your wallet wincing.


Formation at Ace Hotel

Slick, punky funk jams by a pair of cool young brothers from south London. We reckon that these guys are major ones to watch. Tuesday May 12. Free with online RSVP.


Spectres at Corsica Studios

Gear up for some skull-rattling noise as the loud and heavy post-rock crew from Bristol drop in to Elephant & Castle. Tuesday May 12. £7.


Dan Raza at The Defector’s Weld

A young promising country-folk singer, Raza headlines a free night of roots and Americana in SheBu. Wednesday May 13. Free!


Happyness at the Boston Arms

The London three-piece serve up a tasty mixture of Pavementish slacker rock and Blurry indie. Wednesday May 13. £9.


Virginia Wing at Shacklewell Arms

Classic guitar-pop meets electronic drones as cool London trio Virginia Wing headline a Critical Heights all-dayer. Sunday May 17. Free!
