We went to have a look at the best gig on this week but the listings were so overwhelming we couldn’t possibly pick just one! The city’s music scene is better than ever so read on and see what’s happening on your doorstep this week!

Wednesday 18th May

Mayday Parade, Sub91

From all the way over in Florida, one of America’s best pop-punk groups are heading to British shores and have a date in Leicester on their UK tour. They’ve played with everyone from Madina Lake to You Me At Six, been on The Warped Tour, and are quickly gaining a legion of fans both here and stateside.

The show is 14+ and tickets are £12.50 so grab yours HERE.


Thursday 19th May

MC Lars, Lock42

He describes his style as “post-punk laptop rap” and he’s been one of the first rappers to sample punk and emo artists. Having toured with Wheatus, Bowling for Soup and Gym Class Heroes amongst a plethora of others, MC Lars certainly knows how to keep the crowds happy. Don’t be surprised if you see him hanging out at the merchandise stand before and after his show, he’s definitely an artist at one with the DIY nature of the business.

Tickets are only £6.50 and remember this isn’t just a gig, it’s a guaranteed party! Get your tickets now from HERE.


Friday 20th May

The Junipers, Guildhall

Definitely a band worth seeing! The Psychedelic sounds of The Junipers are coming to The Guildhall this coming Friday. They have supported Kasabian and have played Leicester’s favourite festival – Summer Sundae Weekender. Not to mention receiving brilliant reviews from Uncut Magazine and Record Collector for their album ‘Cut your Key‘ and BBC Radio 2 for ‘Single of the week‘.

Advanced booking is recommended. Unreserved seating & licensed bar. £8.00 / £6.00
