Feb and March Gigs

I only realised last week that I hadn’t posted about my February gigs, so instead I’ve got a double whammy of February AND March!

Tame Impala @ Ally Pally

I’d been dying to see Tame Impala for quite a while, although I had heard they weren’t the best live. Don’t believe the rumours as they were fantastic! They had the prettiest lighting of pinks and purples. Oh so dreamy.

Rock Off Challenge @ The Pipeline

With A Vengeance Band Live Rock Off Challenge The Pipeline London Music Blogger

The Boyf and his band played a battle of the bands style gig arranged by my old housemate Tony and great friend Kiran. With A Vengeance were their competition. Red Hook played a mean heavy metal cover of Abba’s Gimme Gimme Gimme which actually worked really well with their style of music. I also got to play Social Media Manager for the night, updating Tone Key’s Instagram and Twitter accounts during the event. Keep an eye out for their next gig!

Musical Marathon @ Chequers Barkingside

Red Hook Band Live at Musical Marathon for Big Issue Charity Gig London Music Blogger

As Red Hook won the Rock Off Challenge the previous week, they won a spot playing at my wonderful friend Lucy’s 12 hour musical marathon that she put on to raise money for The Big Issue charity. There was a whole array of different types of live music throughout the day, from classical piano playing by Erin, Celtic folk by Arfur Doo and of course, heavy metal from Red Hook. I’m so incredibly proud of Lucy for organising one hell of a day!!

St Patrick’s Punk @ New Cross Inn*

Ofelia Band Live at New Cross Inn St Patrick's Paddy's Punk London Music Blogger

I made up for spending actual St Paddy’s night indoors, by grabbing passes through Jukely the following night for some St Patrick’s Punk. The night included music from Pog, Ofelia (who were my favourite!), Foxes Faux and ending with Smokey Bastard, who covered Delilah by Tom Jones and had everyone singing in the New Cross Inn!

First World Problems @ St Moritz

First World Problems band live at St Moritz Club Bar Soho London Music Blogger

James invited me along to watch one of his work friends bands play a little hidden basement club in Soho. There’s always a worry when going to watch a friend of a friends band play that they’ll be rubbish and then you have to pretend that you really liked them. No pretending here, I really truly loved them and I now have a mini girl crush on James’s colleague.

Mystery Jets @ Hospital Club

Mystery Jets Band Live at The Hospital Club Deezer London Music Blogger

Every now and then, Deezer put on a free gig. A few weeks ago they announced that the Mystery Jets would play their next gig at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden. I’d never been to the Hospital Club before. It was strange to travel 4 flights in a lift for a live concert. By the time we got there it was packed! When did hipsters get so frigging tall?! I could barely see, but Mystery Jets sounded well on form and even played some new stuff, along with their classics of course!

Gigs marked with a * are those which I got passes for through Jukely. You can get £10 off your first month by using my special code: JUKECE1

Did you manage to make it to any of these gigs? Or maybe you saw someone else. I’d love to hear in the comments below!

You can catch January’s gig round-up here, and be sure to read all about why I go to so many gigs.

  1. Wow, so many gigs! I love live music but I barely ever find out about gigs before they’re sold out now I’m in London (and on a purely lazy note people tend to play in the east and I’m west!). I really need to find a way to see some more bands though – it makes me feel old being one of those people who are out of the loop!!
