The Amazons: Buyers Club, March 6
If there is one group to keep an eye on in 2017, it’s The Amazons, who head up to the Buyers Club this week, as they are joined by Cupids and Danye for a whopper of a date.
With big hype and the tunes to easily back it up, this lot won’t be playing this size venue for too long.
Tinariwen: Invisible Wind Factory, March 7
Malian musical legends come to the Northern Docklands this year, with Tinariwen making a much welcomed return to our shores.
In what is one of only two UK dates for the group on their European tour, be sure to act fast if you want to see these legends.
Man and The Echo: Buyers Club, March 8
Warrington upstarts Man and The Echo head to the Buyers Club this week with many folk tipping them to take this year by storm.
Having been heralded as one of the great northern songwriters of our times, Gareth Roberts and his bandmates should be on your radar. Support on this one comes from Sugarmen.
The Americas: The Magnet, March 9
The infectious sound of Brummey feral trio The Americas will be more then ready to hit The Magnet this week, as they make their Liverpool bow.
With a lineup that boasts The Isrights, Wet Yeti and Affairs too, this should wipe away the cobwebs for anyone lucky enough to make it.
Sleeptalking: Maguires, March 10
Bristonian psych grunge rockers Sleeptalking make the long journey up north this week, as they hit the close surroundings of Maguires as part of their UK tour.
Armed with enough energy to shake you to your core, the five piece are joined by Debt Stars, Vulture Cult and Echo Grass on what may be the loudest gig of the week.
Ross From Friends: Buyers Club, March 10
Fear not, this is not David Schwimmer but actually one of the hottest properties in the dance circuit at present, Ross From Friends.
The Colchester spinner is causing waves with his emotionally tinged house workings have seen his stock rocket over the last few months so trust us when we say this is going to go off big time.
Rongorongo: HUS, March 11
One of the most promising talents to come from Merseyside in recent memory, as GIT Award nominees Rongorongo head up to the neon bunker at HUS primed to make this year their own.
This one will also boast Hannah’s Little Sister, Mary Miller, To Eva and Broom of the System to make this the perfect way to wrap up your week.

Upcoming events to keep an eye on
The Shipbuilders: The Shipping Forecast, March 17
Continuing to ride the musical crests of the Mersey’s waves, The Shipbuilders descend to the depths of The Shipping Forecast this St Patricks Day, having won rave reviews for their storming debut EP Something In The Water. With Mad Alice and David Barnicle & The Mystery Force also on the bill, this is bound to be a foot stomper and a half.
Crazy Town: EBGBS, April 17
Rising like a phoenix from the flames of the nu metal splurge of the noughties, Crazy Town wind back the years to head to EBGBS next month in possibly one of the most surprising come backs of recent memory. Many members may have come and gone over the years, but we still reckon Shifty and his crew will make this one hell of a party.
