J Mascis is the singer, guitarist and songwriter for Dinosaur Jr. and has produced two beautiful solo albums. They’re pieces of music to be listened to alone, and will be the type of gig in which you can drift off into your own world – for £18.
This Canadian quintet are every hipster music blogger’s wet dream. But their romantic and dreamy front-woman makes them stand out from the moany and dreary with her naive ‘struggles-of-a-twenty-something’ style lyrics. Their debut album Alvvays is well worth a listen, with moments reminiscent of the first time we heard Warpaint. Tickets for £10.
