So the exams are all but over and now the festival season, summer jobs or caravan holidays with the 'rents are all looming. Alternatively, stay in Norfolk and enjoy some of these upcoming vacation specials. As we say round these parts, “Norwich do summer right good, boy”.


he North London hip-hop poetry reggae legend that is Skinnyman

kicks off my July on the 1st at Te Owl Sanctuary.Real Big Ting. But if a late- nighter is more your ting, pop down to Space Studios whereJaztecare hosting their album launch party, which will take you coolly through to the early hours.

Perfect Mistakesand Comic Book Endingsare just two of the acts appearing at theWaterfront Studioon the 2nd.AJQJand Maya Lawwill also be there. No point in Waiting for Sunday when it all happens here on a Saturday.

An intimate evening at the LCR?Sounds contradictory until you realise that it's a seated gig on the 5thwith the queen of Americana, Lucinda Williams.Let Te Ghosts of Highway 20 wrestle with the Tickthorn roundabout and the Earlham Road. An autogyratory delight awaits you.

Open, in association with Outline and BBC Introducing, present

48 / July 2016/

another £3 deal of the day on the 6thwith the latest edition of Te Cut. Tis month it features Will Overton's band Lightscape, Next Big Ting semi- finalists Happy Coloured Marbles,and KL rockers Youth Killed It.

Norfolk's Morganwayhave progressed so far musically that it is now unfair simply to liken them to Fleetwood Mac. See what you think at NACon the 7th. It will also provide one of the last chances to see fellow local favourites Addison's Uncle.

Don't miss Odd Box's night at Te Murdererson the 8th. It features Soyuz Rats, Epia,and the welcome return of one of my one of my favourite local bands, Host.

Mysterious girls should make a beeline to the LCR on the 9th. Yes, ladies. Mr 'I'm A Celebrity Iceland Shopper' himself, Peter Andre, will be snacking on all types of jungle critters, and singing a few tunes as well. It all sounds Insania, and probably will be. Alternatively, pop down to the Maddermarket Teatre for some lovely accordion-

led French jazz from the Gabrielle Ducombe Quartet. Mmm. Nice. (Provençal jazz humour).

American guitar legend Jesse Malin is playing the Waterfront Studioon the 14th.Lead singer of New York punks D Generation during the 90's, and with eight solo albums to his name, this is definitely one not to miss. Love It To Life.

Nocturna, Blind Saviour and Rolodex of Gods provide a triple bill of rock at the B2on the 15th. Everyone back to mine for a hot chocolate after that one?

Tere's an alluring line-up at Gonzo'son the 17th, that includes James Whiteand the talented guitarist Kolin Durier,but it is the curiously named French Dogthat has me intrigued. Have baguettes and sausages at the ready, but make sure that the mustard is Colman's.

Whilst every Guardian- reading couple with Golden Triangular kids-in-carts will be enjoying milky coffees at Latte-tude, Norwich will be creating its own clashfinder dilemma on the 18th.Choose between Tim Burgess (of Te Charlatans) atNorth, Tanya Donnelly's Bellyat Te Waterfront,Grammy Award winning Tuareg band TinariwenatNAC, or BJ Barham(he of American Aquarium) at Te Bicycle Shop. All that we are missing are the wristbands and the long-drop toilets.

Do not forget that the

world's very best free Norwich listings magazine is 15 years old this summer, and that there is a massive party on the 23rdat Te Owl Sanctuary to celebrate. Keep eyes peeled for full details. You won't want to miss it.

Acoustic four-pieceTrack Dogs visit Te Bicycle Shop on the 25th. Yarmouth Stadium was unavailable. Hope they manage to park the Greyhound tour bus in St Benedicts Street. Seriously though, the album Serenity Sessionsis a great listen.

Te Hot 8 Brass Bandsold out NAClast November for what many referred to as their personal gig of the year. Tey are back at Te Waterfronton the 27th.Do not luck out this time around. You have been told. Next Big Ting finalists Savage Islandare supporting.

Finally, end your July with singer songwriterFinn Doherty at Te Bicycle Shop on the 31st,and you also get to hear the talented Aphra- did you see her in Wild Life during this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival? It's a Tilting Sky night, so expect a couple more acts as well.

And so that is July done and dusted, I hope those of you who will not be around all month enjoy Latitude, Torremolinos or your two weeks salmon fishing in the Yemen, and we'll all meet up again in August and compare suntans.
