London Gigs: 18-24 May 2015

Gig Of The Week

Erased Tapes’ Nils Frahm (pictured) has built up a reputation as one of the most innovative pianists – nay, instrumentalists – of our time. Berlin-based Frahm is never one to take the easy route; he toils over fascinating recording techniques and synth insertions, and his music is consuming, powerful stuff. Catch him at the Roundhouse on Friday, in an extraordinary week for the Camden venue that also sees it play host to the mighty Swans, Mew and The Cinematic Orchestra.
