Melting Vinyl Present : Chapelier Fou – 3 October

Venue: Blind Tiger  8pm
One-man bands used to look pretty similar. Big bass drum on the back, acoustic guitar, harmonica rack, rings on his fingers, bells on his toes… Louis Warynski looks nothing like this. In the digital age, a one-man band can make a plump old noise just from the push of a couple of buttons. £8/£9

Mahala Rai Banda – 4 October

Venue: The Old Market 7.30pm
An explosive fusion of Balkan and Gypsy rhythms and lightening-fast melodies from the Romanian band whose songs featured all over the Borat soundtrack – be transported straight to a Gypsy wedding. Their music is known the world over as the basis for the classic Shantel remix of their track Mahalageasca. They’ve played with Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello, and in the Gypsy Queens and Kings show. £15

White Mink – 5 October

Venue: The Old Market 9pm
WHITE MINK is the zeitgeist-capturing speakeasy where the sounds and styles of the 1920s and 30s are turned on their head and smuggled into the 21st century. What started out as a launch party for our compilation CD series; White Mink : Black Cotton (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz), became the accidental hub of a clubbing scene and subsequently a hot festival circuit attraction. £10


Venue: The Haunt 7pm
Devon Sproule’s first UK release, Keep Your Silver Shined, proved an indie hit for her Coventry-based label Tin Angel Records, topping year-end lists, landing her a spot on Later…with Jools Holland, and inspiring many a Brit to google “Virginia.” Now she’s returning to the UK with a new addition to her band, Toronto guitar / synth virtuoso Thom Gill. £12

Warehouse – Breach – 6 October

Venue: Audio 11pm

Breach is the alter ego of Ben Westbeech – a man of many talents. Singer, producer, DJ and now label owner – with his own ‘Naked’ imprint making a bold statement of intent with it’s first release. “You Won’t Find Love Again’ is a perfect slice of underground house magic, complete with soulful chord progressions and catchy vocal hooks. Free bf 12 / £5 after

SKREAMIZM feat Skream – 6 October

Venue: Concorde 2 11pm
The Skreamizm night will take a back-to-basics approach: a dark room, a massive soundsystem, an extended set, and a focus firmly on the music. Rather than staying in one place, Skream explains, we’ll find him taking the crowd on a tour through the music he loves. £12

Jim Whyte’s Sonic Butterfly – 7 October

Venue: The Brunswick 8pm
Originally hailing from Glasgow and now resident in the South East; ex – Gulidhall School of Music and Drama post graduate drummer/singer and composer Jim Whyte, will be performing with his critically acclaimed ensemble ‘Sonic Butterfly’; performing tracks from his recent album of the same title, and some new ones as well. £8
