It’s a short week but there are still plenty of gigs going on sale this Friday. Here are some you might want to put in the diary. Tickets available from 9am.
Vocal harmonising Grizzly Bear have been working on the follow up to 2009′s acclaimed Veckatimest for three years now. But with its gestation period nearly over and a release scheduled for September, the quartet have announced a date at O2 Academy Brixton on 22 October. Tickets £22.50 + bf.
Wye Oak are another folk-influenced act hailing from across the pond. The boy-girl duo have been going since 2006 but are more likely to draw comparisons with Beach House than The White Stripes. They’ll play Scala on 11 December. Tickets £10.00 + bf.
Django Django played to a packed tent at Field Day over the weekend and are likely to be one of the breakthrough acts of the festival season this year. With earlier dates at Heaven already sold out, you’d better book up pronto for O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 21 December. Tickets £15 + bf.
Labrinth has worked with Professor Green, Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32, but now he’s bringing his own rap-pop to O2 Academy Brixton on 20 October. Tickets £17.50 + bf.
Leeds alt-rockers Pulled Apart By Horses have a reputation for frenzied, shouty live shows with lots of jumping around and frenetic crowds. Their music’s not half bad either – experience them at HMV Forum on 13 November. Tickets £12.50 + bf.
