For some of you Field Day at Victoria Park was the start of summer. For some others maybe it felt like the beginning and end? But fear not, because Eat Your Own Ears has a whole raft of great shows to keep you busy over the summer months and those long evenings (hopefully some sunshine too). Here’s a little guide to the best upcoming shows…
TNGHT – Village Underground – 21st June
True to the project’s name, this one happens TONIGHT, and is set to be a very special show indeed. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke join forces for the first time together in London. Unmissable fun.
Neneh Cherry and the Thing – Village Underground – 15th July
The brilliant Neneh Cherry is back and this time she has a Thing. Her new record is earning huge acclaim and rightly so. The first few shows have been full of inspiration and improvisation and this looks like it could be a superb gig.
Atlas Sound + Verity Susman – Scala – 19th July
Less than a month to go to the return of Atlas Sound and with Bradford Cox you never quite know what to expect (“My Sharona” hecklers beware). We’re hoping for an outing of some new songs and highlights from the stunning “Parallax”
Nathan Fake – CAMP Basement – 30th August
For those planning late August there’s a treat in the form of Nathan Fake. The electronic producer is back with a superb new EP and has blown us away everytime we’ve seen him. We expect more of the same.
Grimes – Heaven – 5th/6th September
Grimes has been one of the success stories of the year – and a HUGE highlight at Field Day. Her twin shows at Heaven are the only London dates left for the summer and are long sold out.
Beirut – Hammersmith Apollo – 14th September
Beirut was another big Field Day highlight (FYI: YouTube search Beirut/Field Day/Dancing) and we can’t wait for a second bite of the cherry in mid-September. Still a few tickets for this one so hurry.
James Yorkston – Southbank Centre – 24th September
A new James Yorkston album, delightfully titled ‘I Was A Cat From A Book’ is out this year, his first for a good four years. Southbank Centre welcomes him into their well-ventilated and acoustically-excellent hall for what promises to be a superb show as always.
Hot Chip + Django Django – Brixton Academy – 19th October
The brilliant Hot Chip might just have made the best album of their careers (we think). We are already beyond excited to see the new record live at the end of October. Heirs to their weird-pop throne Django Django will be in support.
