New Social Sheffield Live Music Editor, Joe Taysom, recommends three exciting gigs coming to Sheffield, Mon. 14 – Sun. 20 Aug. 2017.
1. – The Sherlocks // Fri. 18 Aug. // HMV Sheffield – – (FREE)
This Friday, local lads The Sherlocks are set to finally release their long-awaited debut album ‘Live for The Moment’. To celebrate its launch, they are performing it live at HMV in Sheffield City Centre and will be signing copies. The four-piece have been touring the UK for years and have earned themselves an army of fans who are gleefully excited for the release of this LP. The event kicks off at 5:30 and entry is granted on a first come first served basis with a copy of the album. I’d advise queuing as this is one not to be missed!
For fans of: Catfish and The Bottlemen, Circa Waves
Songs to listen to: Chasing Shadows
Hear a sample: The Sherlocks ‘Chasing Shadows’
2. – Marmozets // Fri. 18 Aug. // Plug – – (£12.90)
Two years after storming the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festival and with a brand-new album in tow, this band of siblings are set to raise the roof at the Plug on Friday. The band are playing a series of dates in intimate-ish venues up and down the country to let fans preview the new material. They’ll then be returning to Reading and Leeds at the end of August. This tour will be the first opportunity for Marmozets fans to witness them live since 2015 and it’s set to be a raucous occasion. It’s also worth getting down to the gig early to check out the hugely talented Blackwaters, who are destined for big things.
For fans of: Don Broco, Mallory Knox
Songs to listen to: Captivate You
Hear a sample: Marmozets ‘Captivate You’
3. – Generation // Sat. 19 Aug. // Record Junkee – – (£6)
Scouse punks Generation are fresh from releasing their debut EP ‘Who likes this Generation?’ They are making waves despite only being together for less than six months with their current line-up. Frontman Dean Carne cites The Stooges and The Cramps as two of their main influences. Their sound is loud, thrash and captivating – three things you can expect if you get down to see them live at the Record Junkee this Saturday night.
For fans of: Royal Blood, The Stooges
Songs to listen to: I like it
Hear a sample: Kings Of Leon ‘Waste A Moment’
