's Gigs Of Note

Gigs of note for 24 March 2014-6 April 2014

Oxford sound artist Lee Riley hosts an event at the Port Mahon in Oxford on Wednesday 26 March. ‘Category: Other’ will include a set by Riley himself, along with sets from avant-garde composer Samuel C. Roberts and ambient electronic chap Mr Glick. Interesting stuff.

Relive your Britpop days of yore on Friday 28 March, as Suede play O2 Academy Oxford. They’ve got a new album out, and everything.

A million and one Oxford music things to do on Saturday 29 March, including: Desert Storm at O2 Academy 2; ArtClassSink at The Cellar; Girlpower at The Wheatsheaf. All with even more Oxford bands as support acts. This is what Oxford does well – great local bands, a ton of choice. Love it!

There’s a free lunchtime performance from Oxford Improvisers Orchestra at 1.00 pm on Monday 31 March at St Michael at the North Gate, Oxford. The Orchestra will be performing “a series of improvisations in various combos”, and it’s certain to spice up your Monday…

The Mercury-nominated experimental-jazz-electronica-rock combo Polar Bear will be doing their very particular thang at St John the Evangelist Church in Oxford on Thursday 3 April. They’ll be performing work from their new album, which is described as “more spacious and more intense than their previous work”.

There’s a lil’ shindig on Saturday 5 April at Fusion Arts (in East Oxford Community Centre), to celebrate the launch of Freada’s new EP. They’ll be playing, as will Count Drachma, Clare Ewen and Julia Meijer. What’s more, they promise that there will be home-baked goodies to buy!

Full details of these and loads more gigs can be found in the events calendar.
