The Clause

When: Saturday 18th November 2023

Where: The Ferret in Preston

The Clause are one of the best Brummie indie exports in recent years. Jamming together since childhood, the four-piece uniquely blends the swagger of the 60s, the rolling groove of the 80s, and the riotous verve and attitude of the 90s, into music that gets the blood pumping and the crowds moving. From bangers from the back catalogue like 'In My Element' to recent raucous numbers like 'I Don't Care' their live shows are always loud and proud, and they truly are a must-see for Indie fans.

Support for this one is Sugarstone and Double Think, grab your tickets below!

50 Years Of Hip Hop w/ Children Of Zeus

When: Friday 1st December 2023

Where: Market Place Peckham in London

Limited to only 200 tickets and more than likely their most intimate show, where else better to deliver one of the most exciting British acts, than in a corner of South London? Children of Zeus is the neo-soul project from two of Manchester’s most respected artists; Konny Kon & Tyler Daley. Konny and Tyler have such great chemistry and have created their own unique style; one that effortlessly blends butter-smooth soul/R&B with upfront rap and hip-hop.

Very few are left for this one, so be quick and experience British hip-hop in one of its finest hours!

Beach Fossils

When: Friday 16th February 2024

Where: New Century in Manchester

Sun-drenched riffs, kaleidoscopic rhythms and hazy lyrics; Beach Fossils are one of the coolest bands in the world. Born out of a carefree ethos, with a vibe akin to an American road trip, you'll struggle to find much better modern surf rock than the Brooklyn outfit. 

This one may be a while away, but if we were you, we'd be booking tickets now, as this will sell-out, and no one wants gig fomo now do they?

When: Tuesday 28th November 2023

Where: Camp And Furnace in Liverpool

Hard to describe, hard to capture, and even harder in the music they create, Kneecap are a truly unique group out of Northern Ireland. Pioneering a movement of Irish-language rap, they exude the anger and struggle of both their country's history and the class conditions they grew up in; creating a musical melting pot of angry punk-fuelled hip hop that is political, revolutionary, angry, and oh-so bloody good. 

Catch them as they come across the sea to Liverpool, courtesy of Camp and Furnace and Pink Dot, this is set to be a riotous night that you really cannot be missing out on. Tickets below!

Bad Manners

When: Friday 29th December 2023

Where: OGV Podium in Aberdeen 

Heroes of the Ska scene and a band your Dad probably has very fond memories of, Buster Bloodvessel and Bad Manners are back this year to bring their nostalgic skank-filled Ska to an audience clad in Fred Perry and Brogue Boots. Whilst to many the genre is a dying breed, the band are coming to Aberdeen to recapture the would of those who were there, as well as those that wish they were.

A cant-miss show for the older crowd and one that is sure to sell out, so get your tickets and get that old-school skank practised, it's going to be a stomper.

Nell Mescal

When: Wednesday 24th January 2024

Where: Hare And Hounds Kings Heath in Birmingham

Unassuming and oh-so-cool, Irish indie folk singer Nell Mescal rose to fame with the release of her 2022 single "Graduating", followed it up with a string of excellently crafted folk tunes, and now is heading on tour to treat the masses to her sultry vocal tones. With the tour being relatively small, it was hard to choose what date to recommend, but this one at the Hare and Hounds, for us, is probably to pick of the bunch.

If you're a fan of the softer music, then Nell Mescall is a star in the making you want to be able to say you saw before she blew up; grab tickets below!

When: Thursday 14th December 2023

Where: Old Fire Station in Carlisle

Ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, globetrotting, instantly enthralling... it’s little wonder that Talisk rank highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland in the last decade and more. Now, they are heading out on tour, and this opportunity to see them live at the Old Fire Station in Carlisle should not be taken lightly.

We here at Skiddle have been entranced by Talisk ever since we saw the video above, just watch it, and you'll see why you'll have to buy tickets, tickets which you can find below!
