Gig Of The Week

Peaches’ live shows are always a real event. Her past tours have included her one-woman production of Jesus Christ Superstar (Peaches Christ Superstar, natch) and an autobiographical electro-rock opera entitled Peaches Does Herself. Her show at the Electric Ballroom on Sunday is in honour of her recent album, Rub – her first for over six years – so is likely to be a little more conventional, but it’s safe to say we can still expect a raucous, flamboyant show.


Announcement Of The Week

Indiepop stalwarts The Wave Pictures, have announced a new, vinyl-only album, A Season in Hull, is set for release on 12 February. The songs were written at lightening speed and recorded with friends, on acoustic guitars through one microphone, on singer David Tattersall’s birthday earlier this year. The aim being to capture the moment as purely as possible. To preview the record, the band are set to play three shows in two days at the Lexington on 20 and 21 December (including a Sunday matinee).
