Start off at Epic Studios on the 1st where a pop- punk triple bill awaits you, with Canada’s Seaway, Liverpool’s WSTR and Brighton’s Te Gospel Youth. Pinch and a punch, and all that.

Te wonderful C Duncan is back at Norwich Arts Centre on the 2nd. Writes and records music in his bedroom, gets Mercury Prize nominated, and is beautiful live on stage. A veritable boy wonder.

Unbelievable, but true. Fairport Convention are 50 this year, and celebrate with a new album and tour. Get the real ale in at Open on the 4th when they get their fiddles out once again.

Richard Sutton, Chad Mason and Robbie Hall are all set to entertain you at Te Plasterers on the 9th. Another excuse for real ale, and possibly a pizza as well?

Hit Te Murderers up on the 10th for another top Oddbox night feat Birds of Hell and Joy Tourette, all fer free.

Loyle Carner took the Norwich Arts Centre

by storm last October. Let’s see if South London’s latest hip hop hope can do it again at Te Waterfront on the 11th. His debut album Yesterday’s Gone should be flying high by then.

Local guitar band Black Shuk headline a show at Norwich Arts Centre on the 13th. Named after the ghostly black dog said to roam the coastline of Norfolk, this band have the energy and the riffs to have you dancing all the way to California (well, the one just north of Great Yarmouth).

If your true love loves jazz and wants to see an all-time legend, then take your choccies and roses down to the Playhouse Teatre on the 14th. Chris Barber, together with his trombone and Big Band, will be blowing, tapping and strumming for your romantic pleasure. Happy Valentines Day.

Norwich born and bred, and now global superstar DJ, our very own Sigala will be mixing it and making it tropical in the house at Te LCR on the 15th. Easy Love and Say You



“If music be the food of love, play on”. Tat’s one of Shakespeare’s, and he might well have been thinking of February as well as Twelfth Night. In between preparing the dim sum to welcome the Chinese New Year, kissy-kissy romantic dinners on the 14th, and loads of yummy pancakes on the 28th, gorge yourselves on this month’s tasty platter of musical delight.

Do mean you will be shakin’ it right bootiful out on that there dance floor.

Alternatively, there might be murder on the dance floor on the 16th when Sophie Ellis Bexter turns up at Te Waterfront. Originally with one of my favourite 90’s indie bands Teaudience, she has collaborated with Ed Harcourt on recent albums, so expect plenty of new material before it’s time to Take Me Home.

Have the disinfectant ready for an outbreak of Anthrax at Te LCR on the 17th. Expect more decibels than you can shake a stick at when these thrash legends take the stage and perform Among Te Living, along with some other classic thrashy tracks.

Have your knickers ready for Te Ballad of Tom Jones when Space make a long overdue visit to Norwich at the Waterfront Studio on the 18th. Avenging Angels and the Female of Te Species might possibly appear alongside material from their new album Give

Me Your Future.

Te historic Guildhall interior provides the atmospheric backdrop for Celtic-Americana duo Lewis & Leigh at Britannia Café on the 21st. Tracks from debut album Ghost will manifest during this one.

You could also catch Te Magic Lantern and local act Eastern Seaboard at Te Bicycle Shop with some supersweet guitar and vox action, also on the 21st.

Deaf Havana play what is surely a homecoming gig at Te LCR on the 23rd. I know they met at college in Kings Lynn, but only fools and worthless liars would dare to split hairs. Tey will always be Sunny Hunny boys to me.

Northampton electro- poppers Fenech- Soler return to the Waterfront Studio on the 25th, now a duo but with new album Zilla to promote. Teir summery indie sound could be just the thing to dispel any vestiges of lingering winter blues.

Tose who follow the

likes of Seth Lakeman and Eliza Carthy will have heard them talk of Broadside Ballads, songs published on cheap single-sided sheets of paper from the 16th century onwards, and probably sold by Roy’s of Wroxham. Norwich Arts Centre present an evening of such songs on the 27th, performed by Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp and Nathaniel Mann. Get your clogs out for this one.

Frontman of Murderdolls, Wednesday 13, rounds off our February on the 28th with an appearance at the Owl Sanctuary, featuring a special Southern Fried set from Bourbon Crew. Expect horror, glam and outlaw country at this one. And save me a bloody pancake.

So that’s it for another month. Let’s now leap into spring like the husk of mad March hares that we know we are. I’ll meet you by the wicker man for a fertility dance and a glass of mead.
