London Rock Gigs: March

You might think with last month’s Kerrang! Tour, this month might find it a bit hard to compete. Well fear not, there’s some awesome gig night for you to rock your socks off to. Have a lookey below:

wednesday 13

Wednesday 13

Weds, March 13 – O2 Academy Islington, £15

Massive props to whoever booked Wednesday 13’s London gig on that specific day. Also, to the Murderdolls frontman himself (if it was his idea) for booking in some great home-grown talent to support him on this tour. Two bands that have previously graced this blog, Orestea and Ashestoangels will be joining the band in Brighton (March 6) and Bristol (March 7), respectively.

Punktastic Presents: Attention Thieves, Neck Deep, Rat Attack

Weds, March 13 – The Old Blue Last, FREE

Here’s another couple of bands that you might’ve read about here before – I highly recommended checking out Attention Thieves and Rat Attack. Sorry, Neck Deep, I’m sure you’re very good too! This looks like a great night of new music, plus its free! What more could you possibly want?

Cancer Bats

Fri, March 15 – Koko, £13.75

Sadly I only caught the end of Cancer bats when they supported Enter Shikari at the Roundhouse on their last tour. Based on what I saw though, this is going to be a good night..

More info.

 

The Gaslight Anthem

Fri,  March 29 and Sat, March 30 – Troxy, £27

I LOVE this band (as you’ve probably guessed) so may well be taking myself along to this.  Although I’ve never heard of Troxy before and the tickets are a bit pricey!

More info.

 

Other notes: Bullet For My Valentine and Halestorm tear up the Roundhouse on March 17. Unfortunately tickets are sold out.

Rock Gigs in London – February

Well its a new month. Fresh start. Not so cold as January (hopefully!).

Anyway, here’s my monthly update of the best gigs coming up, February edition..

The most exciting one I can see on the horizon has to be the Kerrang Tour. It’s got Black Veil Brides headlining, with a bit of post-hardcore from Chiodos, pop-punk with Tonight Alive, and the always amazing, Fearless Vampire Killers.

London date is Brixton Academy on February 15th, but its up and down the country in the two weeks before that. In fact, its on the road already. Go catch it! (tickets are here).

your demise

Another not-to-miss gig is hardcore punks Your Demise hitting up the Garage, London on February 23. All UK dates and ticket links on their Facebook.

 

For a bit of nostalgia, (and to hear the new album, of course) be sure to check out Funeral For Friend. The Welsh lads have a pretty extensive UK tour lined up. If you can, definitely take the chance to see them playing the small places.. Dates here.

 

If none of this takes your fancy, try the ‘wild card’ option: Derby trio Lostalone are at London’s Borderline on February 24. With some great support from Kerrang! and NME, you won’t be seeing them at the mini-venues for much longer.. Tickets and dates here.
