Gig Of The Week

It’s hard to believe it’s been an entire decade since Transgressive released its first record (1am by The Subways, fact fans). Since then, they’ve released over 100 records by more than 30 bands including the likes of Foals, Regina Spektor, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club, At The Drive In and Damon Albarn‘s Africa Express.

This week some of their rosta come together to celebrate the label’s 10th anniversary at the Barbican. Marika Hackman, Mystery Jets, Dry The River and Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit are among those set to play. That’s quite a birthday party!

Announcement Of The Week

Twenty years after Manic Street Preachers released their brilliant third album The Holy Bible, the band are set to play it in its entirety with a series of gigs this December. They’ll be at the Roundhouse on 15-17 December.
