Gigs Of The Week
Emmy The Great’s third album, Second Love, was released earlier this month after a break of almost five years. A mature album, full of twists and turns, Emma-Lee Moss has come a long way since the timid acoustic tracks of her first record. Always a treat live, she’ll be at the lovely Islington Assembly Hall on Thursday 24 March.
Laura Mvula also stops off at Islington Assembly Hall on Tuesday 22 March. With a new album due out in May, expect plenty of new material. If Overcome, her single featuring Nile Rodgers, is anything to go by, it’s going to be a gig to remember.
The Windmill’s all-dayers are something of a bank holiday institution, and this year they’re hosting a ‘bad Friday’ barbecue on, you guessed it, Good Friday. The line-up includes Misty’s Big Adventure, ex-Broken Family Band man Steven James Adams, bonkers Japanese grrrl pop band No Cars and lots more. It starts at 3pm, and tickets are £9.
