deezer gig guide

Although festival season is in full swing there are still some great gigs going on in the capital this month. Dominic Wallace, Deezer’s UK and Ireland Music Editor, has given us his recommendations for the best gigs to be checking out in August. “A few highlights include American hip hop group Arrested Development who are playing two nights at the Jazz Café, eight piece band Ibibio Sound Machine who will be bringing their vibrant show to the Globe’s Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and one act that I’m predicting good things for, HUNTAR, who will be at the O2 Academy Islington on the 16th August. If all that still leaves you wanting more then get yourself to the Lexington at the end of the month where Sydney songstress Julia Jacklin will be performing as a part of her hectic world tour schedule (you can see the dates on her facebook page, it’s mental…). Check out all of these, and plenty more, below…”
