Gigs this summer in Glasgow


May

MICHAEL KIWANUKA
6-May-22 O2 Academy

British singer-songwriter and record producer Michael Kiwanukas self-titled album hit no.2 on charts on its release. Richly textured, sonically adventurous but highly listenable KIWANUKA was greeted with acclaim from all corners of the globe. Its a record that finds its blueprint in Michael previous record Love & Hate but pushes harder and travels further. It feels like a body of work that will be listened to for years to come, and is perhaps testament to an artist who hasnt been rushed nor guided on his recordings beyond the watchful but encouraging eyes of dual producers Danger Mouse and Inflo.

LEITH ROSS
11-May-22 Drygate w/ Andy Shauf

Leith Ross is a singer-songwriter and performing artist born and raised in the outskirts of Ottawa, Ontario. Struck by a culmination of inspiration sourced from their Celtic roots, and potentially the High School Musical series, Leith Ross became a vessel for their very own distinctive musical style. As a young person, songwriting quickly became Leiths most dependable method of processing their identity and lived experiences. Like a metaphorical beating heart on a sleeve, Ross music is raw, vulnerable and often received with a deep sense of catharsis.

THE BIG MOON
23-May-22 Oran Mor

Following support tours with Pixies and Bombay Bicycle Club, and their own run of headline dates in 2020, The Big Moon were due to hit the road in 2021. After offering fans one-on-one music lessons throughout lockdown, the tour is now finally going ahead so expect to hear tracks from their Mercury shortlisted debut Love In The 4th Dimension and top 20 follow-up Walking Like We Do.

JELANI BLACKMAN
27-May-22 SWG3

Born and raised in London, Jelani Blackman has steadily emerged as one of the citys most vibrant voices and has been hailed as one of the most exciting, versatile rappers around. A 2020 joint project with Ghetts & Fraser T Smith landed him in one-to-watch charts for the year, and his catalog of collaborators includes Ghetts, Burna Boy, Wolf Alice and Brian Eno. With a Fire In The Booth recently under his belt, and views in the millions for his COLORS session of his latest single "Hello", its clear that people are ready to hear what Jelani has to say.

THE AVALANCHES
20-Jun-22 Queen Market Union

In their groundbreaking debut, Since I Left You, The Avalanches presented the world with a totally unique sound, crafted by meticulously combining over 3,500 vinyl samples. This approach set a precedent for dance music, inspiring a whole generation of musicians and producers. Released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S. and the U.K. (debuted at No.8) in 2001, Since I Left You is now regarded as a modern classic. The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches sophomore album, Wildflower (Modular Recordings). It charted top 10 in the UK, debuted at No. 1 on Billboards Vinyl Albums chart, with The Guardian hailing it as "a joyous journey" and Pitchfork proclaiming it "better than just about any music ever made" and "an album that could have been made by nobody but the Avalanches."

June

YEARS & YEARS
25-Jun-22 Colourboxx

As Years & Years, Olly Alexander has become one of the worlds most trailblazing modern pop stars. Across two hugely successful albums to date, the singer, actor, fashion icon and cultural vanguard has earned 5 Brit Award nominations, surpassed 4.4 billion global streams, and played triumphant shows ranging from Glastonburys Pyramid Stage to The SSE Arena. Along the way, Olly has also become a fearless, once-in-a-generation voice on important discussions around mental health, and issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community - all of which, in its own way, has taken him to Night Call, the most essential Years & Years album to date. On release, the album shot straight to the top spot on the UK charts, earning Years & Years his second number one album.

July

OLIVIA RODRIGO
2-Jul-22 O2 Apollo

Multi-platinum, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Olivia Rodrigo, has released her highly anticipated debut album, SOUR, last year. The album, entirely co-written by Rodrigo, embodies a minimalist yet mesmerizing form of alt-pop, each song centred on the L.A.-based artists beautifully detailed storytelling, unforgettably original narrative voice, and undeniable boldness. The song premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, holding the top spot for eight consecutive weeks and becoming the first in 2021 to hit one billion total global streams.


BABY QUEEN
2-Jul-22 O2 Apollo w/ Olivia Rodrigo

Baby Queen is a deeply personal project for 23-year-old Bella, a musical persona that was born out of feeling like a misfit as she tried to fit into London life following her move here five years ago. Signing to Polydor in 2020, a series of acclaimed releases including an EP and a mixtape have cemented her status as a global popstar in waiting. Baby Queen performed throughout the summer at festivals including Reading & Leeds and played 3 headline shows at Omeara in November – all of which sold out straight away.

HAIM
14-Jul-22 SSE Hydro

Women In Music Pt. III is the follow up to Haims sophomore album, Something To Tell You, which was released in July 2017. Something To Tell You debuted at No.2 on the UK album charts and No. 7 on the Billboard 200 following release and was critically acclaimed by NME, The FADER, NPR, and more. The album was declared "a gleaming triumph of artisanal pop music" by Stereogum, Pitchfork called the album "slyly complex" and The Observer noted that it "finds them adding a bittersweet edge to their fusion of retro pop styles." WIMPIII topped the UK album chart upon release and the new record has been welcomed with an outpouring of critical acclaim and rave reviews. NME hailed WIMPIII "a thing of great beauty" and "their best album yet" in their 5 star review, while the Telegraph proclaimed the record "their best by a distance," backed up by the Financial Times who hailed it their "most accomplished album to date... a powerful statement of intent." The Sunday Times made it their Album of the Week, writing, "Call it perfect third album syndrome."
