Thurs 17th Apr: Von Hertzen Brothers with The Wildhearts – Electric Ballroom, London – Sold Out
A big hit in their native Finland, Von Hertzen Brothers released their fifth long player Nine Lives early 2013.

Fri 18th Apr: Echoic – The Water Rats, London – Tickets
Echoic is ‘colour blind’ music by Finnish musician Otto Nuoranne, who produces rich and layered art rock watermarked by a merging of acoustic and electronic elements. The musician was joined by Markus Vuoristo for debut record Springbook and the duo have been performing live concerts since February 2014. There are still some tickets left for their gig at The Water Rats so grab some quickly!
Sat 19th Apr: Agnes Obel – Barbican, London – Sold Out
The enigmatic Danish chanteuse and pianist Agnes Obel returns to London for one of only three UK shows this spring in support of her critically acclaimed album Aventine. Supported by Brussels’ Melanie de Biasio, the gig at Barbican on April 19th is unfortunetly sold out.
