Jess Morgan - Pamela by laurenrazavi
January’s always a pretty quiet one for gigs, I guess because most bands are, like the rest of us, trying to sober up...at least enough to play without either (a) falling over or (b) vomiting all over the audience. There are a couple of immediate must sees here in Birmingham though. First off hotly tipped Americana tinged folkstress Jess Morgan supports all round folk legend Vin Garbutt at The Red Lion (Kings Heath) on Wednesday 11th.
Next (and touring the UK...brave souls), the France-tastic M83. Dreamy hushed vocals meet 80’s synth pop. Lush! Cool enough to get the hipsters nodding along nonchalantly but poppy enough to get the rest of us a little moist they play the HMV Institute on Saturday 21st. Il ya beaucoup de la voiture dans la rue! (that’s pretty much all the French I know...je suis desole).
