Music Week's gigs of the week, June 15-21

This time next week Glastonbury 2017 will be just about to get into full swing. Here’s where you need to be if you’re keen to spend the next few days out and about. Remember, tiredness is all in the mind… 

Thursday, June 15

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, O2 Forum, 7pm

The first in a double whammy of Aussie eccentricity in Kentish Town, this will be a weird night. King Gizzard churn out albums like it’s going out of fashion, embracing flute solos just as much as they do acid-fried riffs.

Friday, June 16

Pond + Methyl Ethel, O2 Forum, 7pm

This lot are similarly eccentric, in town to plug synthy new album The Weather. Support comes from Methyl Ethel, also from Perth their slightly more chilled approach will still tie you in knots.

Monday, June 19

Show Me The Body, Corsica Studios, 8pm

Listening to this New York hardcore band is live being shoved hard in the chest. Seeing them live is something else altogether. Don’t miss it.

Wednesday, June 21

The Rebel, Brixton Windmill, 8pm

Benedict Roger Wallers fronts Country Teasers, and his messed up solo guise The Rebel is well worth your time. Mundane, deadpan and riveting.

Maggie Rogers, Electric Brixton, 7pm

If that’s not your thing, maybe Maggie Rogers, on the rise from folk singer to serious pop proposition, is. This is her biggest London show to date.
