The Howlers @ The Green Door Store, Monday 11th February

Jimothy Lacoste @ Concorde, Wednesday 13th February
Jimmy Lacoste is an introspective artist with a left-of-center outlook on his North London life. His music has moments of being Mike Skinner-esque, and sometimes parallels North London dance-grime-electro collective Man like Me, but his mature, considered focus on internal struggle makes him an original. Head down to Concorde to see what this 18 year old is all about.
Concorde 2, 7.30 pm – 11 pm. Tickets £14. 14+ (under 16’s accompanied by an adult). Madeira Drive, BN2 1EN
Night Flowers @ Komedia, Thursday 14th February
Night Flowers is an indie-pop band that was formed when good friends from North England collided with Boston, Massachusetts born vocalist
Sophia Pettit. Since then their dreamlike atmospherics, created by a stunning combination of sunny vocals and cheerful guitar, have gained them a global fan-base. Join them this Valentines Day for an evening of heart-stirring, romantic pop and joyousness.
Komedia, 7.30 pm – 11 pm. Tickets £8. 18+. 44 Gardner Street, BN1 1UN
FUR @ Patterns, Friday 15th February
Brighton-based indie band FUR is one to watch this year. Their 60’s inflected ‘If You Know That I’m Lonely’ (which has reached over five million views on youtube), and their debut EP ‘What Would I Do?’ is gaining them an ever-increasing fanbase. Watch them perform in the town they still call home this Friday at Patterns.
Patterns, 7 pm – 10 pm. Tickets £7.50. 14+ (under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult). 10 Marine Parade, BN2 1TL
King King @ Concorde, Saturday 16th February
Glasgow-based King King have been hailed as “the best blues-rock band in the world” by the Blues Rock Review and their most recent edgy, rocky album ‘Exile & Grace’ was crowned the Classic Rock’s Blues Album of the Year. There’s no denying the momentum of these rockers. They are playing at Concorde as part of their UK tour, with support from Sari Schorr.
Gwenifer Raymond and more @ The Prince Albert, Sunday 17th February
The Prince Albert is holding another TST winter warmer with a quality line up. Rising start Gwenifer Raymond will be performing alongside previous favorites, Markers, Sairie, and Fane. Enjoy a pint to an eclectic mix of folk throughout the afternoon.
