04JUNE BLACK LIPS @ BETHNAL GREEN WORKING MEN’S CLUB
Even though it does not quite look like it, summer is upon us peeps! And what better way to kick it off than a good amount of bona fide rock ‘n’ roll? Our first pick is Atlanta’s punk-rockers Black Lips who are currently touring Europe with recently released album ‘Underneath The Rainbow’ and will grace Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club stage on Wednesday the 4th of June.
05 JUNE THE ORWELLS @ DINGWALLS
Our favourite Chicago fivesome will be rocking hard at Dingwalls on June 5th, bringing to our eager ears their debut album ‘Disgraceland’, which will be released on June 2nd. Do not miss them!
06/07 JUNE ARCADE FIRE @ EARL’S COURT
As part of their Reflektor tour, Arcade Fire are set to play two insane gigs at Earl’s Court, a band that never disappoints with their live shows. Epic!
07/08 JUNE FIELD DAY @VICTORIA PARK
To say this year’s Field Day makes you want to jump with psychedelic joy, it is a true understatement. With names such as Pixies, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Temples, The Wytches and The Horrors, it couldn’t get any better than this. Get your sunscreen on and go get yourself wild!
10 JUNE POND @ KOKO
Perth’s Pond, who can be best described as ‘a steady lowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody’, are going to be playing Camden’s KoKo on June 10th. If for whatever reason you’ll miss them at Field Day, get yourself tickets for their own show there, especially as it’s Pond first UK date in two years!
13 JUNE GLASS ANIMALS @ ROUGH TRADE EAST
Following the release of their critically acclaimed ‘Gooey’ EP, Glass Animals will give us a little taster of their forthcoming album on June 13th at Rough Trade East. The best thing? No wristbands needed, as it’s absolutely FREE! Come down on the day at 1 pm and enjoy!

19 JUNE DARK BELLS @ HOXTON SQUARE BAR & KITCHEN
‘Captivating, swirling, beautiful and intense’ that’s how we described Dark Bells’ sound. They’re going to bring it to Hoxton Square Bar &a Kitchen on the 19th, with support coming from Temple Songs and Vladimir. Do not miss them!
26 JUNE TEMPLES @ THE GARAGE
Possibly the best way to end this June giggery, it’s psychedelic Temples taking to the stage at The Garage showcasing their mesmerisingly abundance of acid-infused chills and trills. Support comes from Telegram and The Merrylees. You know you want to be there!
