Later Live – with Jools Holland

Tue Apr 9, 10-10.30pm, BBC2

Series 42, episode one
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.
