THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 16

 

So as The Recommender blog looks ahead to 2009 we find there’s plenty of bright highlights that we can already look forward to. The spring is looking particularly sweet, with two of the UK’s shining examples of powerful Indie turning up to blow us away. Enjoy.


LATE OF THE PIER

Having had the magical hands of the dance legend Erol Alkan helping to produce their debut album they are continuing to blow up in the UK scenes. We first caught them live supporting Justice at The Astoria in London and it proved to be one hell of a ticket as they threw out a highly energetic performance. They are all danceable, space age Indie with a unique sound. They’re a superbly creative and artistic group, who prove to have a mesmerising live set so pop down to Concorde 2, a venue that’s a perfect size for them at this stage of their careers, for a night to remember.

ACT:                     LATE OF THE PIER
VENUE:                 CONCORDE 2
COST:                   £ 9.50
DATE:                   Wednesday 18th February 2009
WEBSITES:           Myspace     Last.fm


THE ENEMY

Another look ahead to 2009 and we see that these guys are heading into town. They may be an big band, in a big venue, but that’s nothing compared to the size of their live sound. They’ve gone from strength to strength since bringing out their debut album in early 2007 and their thumping, sing-along songs are perfect for a live set. Massive chords and pounding beats are thrown at the crowd with a buzzing energy that’s not been seen since the pomp of Kasabian or the attitude of Oasis, (two bands that definitely have more than a little drip of inspiration in The Enemy’s sound and character). Tom leads the line brilliantly with his chest stuck out and a snarling grit in his voice. This gig is part of a lengthy UK tour which will no doubt sell out everywhere, so grab yourself a ticket for them whilst you still can.

ACT:                     THE ENEMY
VENUE:                 BRIGHTON DOME
COST:                   £ 18.00
DATE:                   Wednesday 8th April 2009
WEBSITES:           Myspace    Last.fm

Make sure you keep up to date with The Recommender through 2009 as we continue to bring you the world’s musical highlights. The ride goes on…
