It’s almost time. Live at Leeds returns this weekend, boasting an exciting line-up that features the likes of Everything Everything, AlunaGeorge and Darwin Deez who will play in various venues across the city, from the unlikely setting of Holy Trinity Church, to popular venues such as O2 Academy and Brudenell Social Club.
With the main event just hours away, who are you planning on seeing? If the festival’s fantastic scheduling app isn’t enough to make those all important gig decisions, have a look which bands we are looking forward to this weekend.
Post War Glamour Girls – 4.30 pm @ Leeds Uni ‘Stylus’
Homegrown Leeds art-rockers Post War Glamour Girls are certainly not ones to be missed this weekend as they play a mid-afternoon slot at the University’s Stylus venue.
You can listen to ‘Jazz Funerals’ by Post War Glamour Girls HERE.
The Crookes – 6pm @ The Cockpit
Self-declared ‘new-pop’ northerners The Crookes have quite the accolade with radio plays, a collaboration with fellow Steel City musician Richard Hawley and modelling under their belts. The Crookes’ set at The Cockpit is sure to be one of the weekend’s musical highlights.
You can listen to ‘Bear’s Blood’ by The Crookes HERE.
It’s easy to see how Lulu James has had such a successful run as the support act on Jessie Ware’s latest UK tour. With layered soundscapes and dubstep-inspired musical experimentation, Lulu James’ commanding on-stage presence will wow the crowd at The Faversham.
You can listen to ‘Closer’ by Lulu James HERE.
Man Like Me – 9pm @ The Faversham
Perhaps best known as the band behind the swedish-furniture-version of ‘You’ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties’, Man Like Me’s sound is reminiscent of The Streets’, so its no surprise that the trio are signed to Mike Skinner’s label.
You can listen to ‘You’ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties’ by Man Like Me HERE.
Melody’s Echo Chamber – 11pm @ Nation of Shopkeepers
Even if you don’t plan to spend the day at Nation of Shopkeepers, washing their gourmet burgers down with fruit bear, the enchanting sound of Melody’s Echo Chamber is sure to grab your attention. With Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker producing, Melody Prochet’s psychy sound will provide the perfect ending to the day.
You can listen to ‘I Follow You’ by Melody’s Echo Chamber HERE.
