Wednesday the 18th of September: Zuzu at the sunflower lounge
If you like The Zutons or Haley Kiyoko, then this gig is a one for you. Zuzu is a relatively small artist, originally from Liverpool and her punk-rock song tone and scouse accent makes for a nice combination.

Thursday the 19th of September: No Hot Ashes (With Roma Cove & Honey I Shot The President) at the Sunflower Lounge
Having toured with The Amazons and performed at the Isle of White Festival, this 2018 band inspired by the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen present a fresh alternative indie sound that considering there recent history with gigs (selling out the 950 capacity Manchester Academy) is bound to be a hit.

Friday the 20th of September: Catapult Club presents Charm Offensive / [SKETCH] / The Filthy Casuals / Man Called Skip / Block C at the O2 Accademy3

Tuesday the 24th of September: Pale Waves at the O2 Academy
Having got signed in 2017, Indie Pop sounding band pale waves have been touring various festivals, from Chicago's Lollapaloza festival through to Leeds. Tickets will set you back around £22 - but it's certain to be a good show!
Thursday the 26th of September : Koyo at the Hare and Hounds
Having been selected to perform at the BBC introducing Stages in Leeds and Reading in 2017, Koyo have been making critically acclaimed music and performances that span into the prog rock genre. The Hare and hounds is a bit of a venture out into Kings Heath, but a £4-6 uber or a hop on the 35 bus will get you there in no time. For a £8.80 ticket to see such a well featured band in a nice small pub venue - its 100% worth the price!
Saturday the 28th of September: The Penguin Cafe at The Town Hall
For a bit of a change of pace, this genre defying - mixed world orchestral band is performing there opening night of tour here in Birmingham. Tickets are a pricey £27.00 - but for a psychedelic trip without the substance abuse, this will make for a certainly memorable night out!
