Feature: Gig Rig

Bonjour amigos!

I think you’ll agree that the new site design is looking pretty darn sexy, so massive kudos to Dave for the relentless effort he’s put in to make Spotisfaction what it is.

With the festival season now starting to draw to a close, there promises to be a feast of live music on offer over the coming months. Here are some of my highlights from this week’s findings:

All you good folks of London Town need to book Friday 19 November into your diaries and head on over to the Coronet because this is gonna be an evening you won’t want to miss! Not one, not two but FIVE awesome artists in the form of Caribou, Four Tet, James Holden, Nathan Fake and Rocketnumbernine will be pumping out the finest abstract IDM tunes known to man.

Following the success of their fifth album, High Violet, which was released earlier this year, The National will be playing a handful of UK gigs towards the end of November. Some of us here at Spotisfaction are heading down to the O2 Academy Bristol gig to absorb the atmosphere and kick back with some quality music, so we’d love to see you guys there!

If JamesTAE’s review of Foals‘ second album, Total Life Forever, gave you the urge to see them live then it just so happens that you’re in luck! They’ll be on a nationwide tour in a couple of months, kicking off in late October in Leeds and finishing off in mid November in London. Not one to be missed!
