Amber Arcades
The best in live music this month...

It's October and already the first sting of Autumn is in the air.

The lingering energy of summer is still in our veins, though, and we're itching to get out there, and experience some live music.

From DJ sets to indoor festival, live shows and acoustic sets, this month's round up is one of the broadest we've ever published.

As ever, it's powered by our good friends at Skiddle - check 'em out for the latest ticket news, offers, and more.

Rummaging through his record box, Ron Basement will be joined by a number of special guests - this one is close to selling out, so act quick.

One of the biggest indie discos around, This Feeling specialise in promoting young talent, in providing a platform for new bands to get out of the rehearsal room and on to the stage.

Rising tykes Sauce play this special Manchester edition, with their raucous performance set to be followed by This Feeling DJs spinning the best in indie rock 'n' roll - so expect floorfillers, rarities, and more.

Teleman - Concorde 2, Brighton - October 9th - TICKETS

Teleman's new album 'Family Of Aliens' is a dynamic return, one that explodes their psych-pop tendencies and adds electronic currents, acres of analogue synths, and fresh colour.

Live, the record truly comes into its own, with Teleman reinvigorating their own catalogue, in essence remixing themselves live onstage. Brighton is always a fine place to catch a show, so make your way to the south coast on October 7th to catch this highly under-rated group up front.

Amber Arcades - The Dome, London - October 10th - TICKETS

'European Heartbreak' but an American recording - Amber Arcades' new album is riddled with contradictions, but that goes a long way to explaining the aesthetic depth rumbling through her work. Dutch musician Annelotte De Graaf is blossoming into something special, her psych-pop seeds taking roots and growing into something imposing, and resolutely personal. This London show is a key point in her new tour, and the ideal place to catch Amber Arcades up front.

The Wood Burning Savages - Nice N Sleazy, Glasgow - October 30th - TICKETS

Formed in Derry, the biting riffs and political awareness of The Wood Burning Savages have already made them darlings of the underground. A stellar live act, comparisons could include The Clash or Stiff Little Fingers, but truly this band are carving out their own lane. Confirming their biggest UK tour to date, the Northern Irish group will hit Glasgow on October 30th, playing the basement sweat pit that is Nice N Sleazy. With Glasgow set to give them a raucous welcome, it's time to light a fire with The Wood Burning Savages.
