Thanks to the joys of the ITV Hub, you can watch Love Island on catch up, so why not tear yourself away from the telly (or the pub) and go to a gig? Frank Ocean’s in town this week and everything.
Thursday, July 13
Roots Manuva + Klashnekoff + London Posse + Blak Twang, Brixton Jamm, 7.30pm
Roots Manuva in Brixton doesn’t really need any hard sell, so we won’t waste anyone’s time. This will pop off.
Friday, July 14
Frank Ocean + Solange + Jamie xx + more, Lovebox, Victoria Park, 12pm
The will-he-or-won’t-he festival act of 2017 arrives (all being well) in east London for a show that has great many people practically quivering with excitement. Whatever Frank does, you can rely on Solange to both turn up and be amazing. Of course, there’s plenty more on offer in Victoria Park on Friday, including Mac Miller and Sampha.
Meatraffle + Warmduscher + Suitman Jungle + Sex Cells, Moth Club, 7.30pm
Those hankering after guitar-based mess need look no further than Moth Club this weekend. Meatraffle come on like a mini carnival for the unwashed, while Warmduscher are another of South London’s premier exports.
Tuesday, July 18
Meatbodies + Thee MVPs + Drahla, Moth Club, 7.30pm
Punk rock’n’roll, delivered fast, hard and loud by Cali garage king Chad Ubovich and his band.
Wednesday, July 19
Caramel + Ice Cold Slush + Mass Datura + Luxury Apartments, The Shacklewell Arms, 6.00pm
This eclectic bunch are all on the bill for Space Jam Vol.1. The Shacklewell Arms’ free shows are usually pretty hot; we predict you could find worse things to do on a Wednesday night.
