Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Television Centre may have closed for business, but the BBC’s only live music showcase of any prominence will live on in Maidstone, of all places. This eight-week long, 42nd (!) series starts with another simultaneously eclectic and conservative line-up.
Featured acts including a revived Suede (back with their first album in more than decade), hotly tipped soul Brummie Laura Mvula, Irish R&B whippersnappers the Strypes and the ever-wonderful Cat Power. As with recent runs, this truncated live version will be followed by a fuller-length recording on Fridays, for all those who can’t get enough boogie woogie piano in their lives.
