Wide-eyed Londoners, The Big Moon take to the iconic stage of Southampton's The Joiners on Tuesday 12th for a very special gig. The indie quartet have been building a fairly impressive following with absolute belters in their arsenal of tracks - this is one certainly not to be missed. The band are becoming increasingly well known for their wired, exuberant energy during live sets and this show is set to follow the trend. If you're a fan of Palma Violets, you'll dig this.

Brighton's very own The Magic Gang return to the city for a homecoming gig on Thursday 14th at trendy multi-floor, Patterns. Their last tour went down a storm in the seaside capital and we're excited to see them return with fresh material and banging retro-tinged beats in the way that only they can do best. They're a four-headed beast of tight harmonies, guitar interplay and sickly sweet charm and you'd be a fool to miss them.

Nothing But Thieves stop by Norwich's The Nick Rayns LCR on Wednesday 20th and they promise to deliver huge energy and filthy riffage throughout the night. They're a band that refuse to be pigeon-holed and if you're not yet familiar with them now's the time to get well acquainted, as their popularity is set to increase throughout the latter half of 2016. The ferocious bedlam on offer is definitely one to get down to. It's machine gun music and you better be quick to bag yourself a spot at the front as this band still have so much more to deliver and that's the exciting part. 

Tickets are £14.70 and can be bought here.

The final gig you need to add to your gig list is that of British indie upstarts, High Tyde. The Brighton based four-piece are tearing through the industry at whirlwind speeds, captivating all who hear their intoxicating sound. They're a band destined for greater things, however first up is a gig at Brighton's The Haunt on Friday 29th for them. Even the sky isn't the limit to contain this band with their huge choruses and catchy beats and it's their driving riffs that propels the band forward and steers them in the direction of assured future success. Go mental for this massively tasty musical outfit and lock into their sound at The Haunt come the end of the month.
