The best London gigs in February
Mike Skinner has said a new mixtape is coming in 2019, but you can expect to hear a generous selection of hits from his back catalogue during this five-night Brixton residency. No need to dry your eyes, mate – a few tickets are still available.
The cult pop queen whose fans call her 'Lesbian Jesus' plays her biggest London shows yet. Expect a shedload of sleek hooks and lyrics which explore love and relationships from a queer perspective.
The beguiling singer-songwriter (and seriously skilled guitarist) plays a hometown show in support of excellent third album 'Hunter'. This one should be pretty dreamy.
The Scottish synth-pop trio bring their arena-sized electro bangers to Ally Pally. Expect their biggest hit 'The Mother We Share' and fan favourite 'Clearest Blue' to go off like a frog in a sock.
The north London house duo behind hits like 'Ready for Your Love' and 'Here for You' head south to take over Canada Water superclub Printworks. Expect this one to really go off.
Riding high on their huge hit 'Happier', Dan Smith's quirky indie-poppers play a pair of hometown shows. Expect 'Pompeii' and 'Of The Night' to get Brixton properly bouncing.
Genre-blending alt-pop icon Neneh Cherry tours in support of excellent new album 'Broken Politics', which was produced by Four Tet. This is surely one of the coolest ways to spend Valentine's Day 2019.
The Big Beat legend should turn Wembley's SSE Arena into a sweetly nostalgic rave with era-defining hits including 'Praise You' and 'Right Here Right Now'. No word yet on whether Christopher Walken's on the guestlist.
The trip-hop icons celebrate the 21st anniversary of their 'Mezzanine' album with what's being billed as 'a totally new audio / visual production'. Excitingly, they'll be joined by Elizabeth Fraser of The Cocteau Twins, who sang on three 'Mezzanine' tracks including the hauntingly beautiful 'Teardrop'.
The 'RuPaul's Drag Race' queen who's also an accomplished country singer-songwriter brings her 'Skinny Legend' tour to London. With looks and hooks, this show will be anything but a drag.
