The Gig-a-low Down, w/c 26th November 2012

Monday 26th November

American Idiot @ The New Alexandra Theatre (runs until 1st December) – Okay, so this ain't really a gig but, direct from Broadway, Green Day’s hit musical of the hit album promises to take punk rock where it’s never gone before.

Tuesday 27th November

Laura Mvula @ The Hare and Hounds – hotly tipped Birmingham vocalist plays the kind of intimate gig people will cut their ears off for this time next year.

Thursday 29th November

Evan Dando and Julianna Hatfield @ HMV Institute – acoustic versions of hits and misses from The Lemonheads, Blake Babies and their own solo stuff.

Friday 30th November

Boat To Row / Misty’s Big Adventure / Young Runaways / Charlotte Carpenter @ O2 Academy – Folk loveliness meets musical mayhem as the old skool (Misty’s...bless ‘em) meet the new (everyone else).

Saturday 1st December

Goodnight Lenin @ Birmingham Cathedral – now more of a tradition than Noddy Holder yelling “Ittttttt’ssssss Chhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhrrrrrristmasssssssssss!” the Lenin warm yer cockles just a few months before the release of their debut album.  The gig’s already sold out but you can always stand outside and drink mulled wine with the Goths of Pigeon Park.
