A youthful collective of artists dominate this week’s gigs around the city and Getintothis’ Simon Kirk dishes the details.

Well, these nights are pulling out and we must say, it’s a welcoming change.

Not to put the mockers on mother nature, but it’s getting to that time when we wipe the dust off those summer records in anticipation for long nights and warmer weather.

And, of course, this includes the new Real Estate album which feels like it’s set to feature quite heavily in the coming months.

This week features a slew of of nice intimidate shows dotted around the city this week.

Sadly, the Melon Yellow set for The Invisible Wind Factory this Saturday has been postponed until September, but have no fear – there’s still plenty around over the weekend to keep you occupied

And since The Derby isn’t until Monday, ditch the Red/Blue aggro and get yourselves out to one of these gigs instead.

Enjoy your Sunday and the week ahead.
