September gig guide

As the new  academic year rolls in, our gig diaries are hotting up with some absolute killer acts coming to Leeds and Manchester this September.

Here are a just a few of our fave female talents playing locally this month:

Chloe Foy @ Soup Kitchen Manchester, September 5th

The lyrical music mastery of Chloe Foy takes inspiration from classical gems and layers it with folk, Americana and just a hint of Indie.

Chloe Foy will also be playing  at a secret location in Manchester on the 3rd as part of Sofar Sounds.

For fans of Laura Marling and Aisha Badru

Soccer Mommy @ Deaf Institute Manchester, September  5th

Also in Manchester on the 5th is Soccer Mommy at the Deaf Institute. Nashville-based songwriter Sophie Allison has been hailed as one of indie rock’s most relatable heartbreak kids. Her sharp witted trip through self discovery is “chill but kinda sad.”

For fans of Hinds and Snail Mail

Goat Girl @ Brudenell Social Club, September 8th

Brixton punks Goat Girl have a tongue in cheek way of looking at the world and openly talk about sex, religion and mental health. With music that ranges from satirical to lo-fi urban country, the guitar gang live by the words “dance first, think later.”

For fans of Japanese Breakfast and The Orielles

Mitski @ Brudenell Social Club Leeds, September 24th

Japanese- American songwriter Mitski Miyawaki, known by her fans as just Mitski, does indie rock at its finest. In her latest album Be The Cowboy she lays bare her nomadic life experiences with brutal clarity.

For fans of The Orielles and Our Girl

Half Waif @ Headrow House Leeds, September 25th

The songs of Half Waif yearn to find what it means to be home.  By exploring complex musical landscapes, their world music sounds can transport you to a whole other place. Going to a Half Waif gig is a memorable experience that is not to be missed!

For fans of Hatch and Soccer Mommy
