June ’17: 5 More Great Gigs Coming to Notts This Year

Rest in Peace Bank Accounts.

With Dot to Dot Festival and The Big Weekend concluding May, the festival season has well and truly begun.

And as the warm-up gigs are played, the post-festival cool down gigs are beginning to be announced.

Here are Five Great Gigs just announced to come to Nottingham this year.

The Pigeon Detectives


Continuing on from 10-year anniversary tours being trendy in our last gig guide, Leeds indie rockers The Pigeon Detectives celebrate at Rock City October 20th.

Fresh after performing a free gig in the Broadmarsh Centre, Fly FM’s Mason Coleman spoke with the band earlier this year. The Leeds United promotion talk seems a bit dated though – ouch.

Supported by Sunderland’s Little Comets in a gig with their debut album “Wait For Me” to be played in full, these Detectives are definitely worth your money.

Tickets are on sale Friday, June 2.



After supporting Circa Waves in Nottingham in March, four-piece alt rock band INHEAVEN play The Bodega on Friday 13th October.

Lucky for some.

With a sound harking back to female-led rock groups of the 1990s married with millennial-focused themes – INHEAVEN are not to be missed.

Tickets went on sale Friday, June 2nd – and their debut album out September 1st can be bought at a discounted price with the tickets.

CATS in SPACE – The Band 


Or more simply Cats in Space – are an intriguing coup for Rock City.

The power poppers have only one single on Spotify but are already set for a headline gig Friday 15th September in the Basement. (Granted, they do have one physical album).

It must be their influences spanning 70s rockers ELO, Queen, 10cc, Supertramp – the list goes on.

Whether they’ll be actually any astronaut felines there remains to be seen. We’ll let you know after September 15th.

Tickets went on sale Friday, June 2nd (yep, that’s becoming a theme here).

Neck Deep


As Fly FM will be neck deep in Freshers Week coverage, you could be joining us seeing Neck Deep live at Rock City on October 9th.

Shame the gig is not in December – like their most popular song. (Though at least it’s here sooner!)

The Welsh pop-punk quintuplets The Peace and The Panic Tour are actually more popular in the US than the UK – so why not change that and book those tickets now.



More cats? Yep. 

Following their 2016 album Drive North, punk rockers SWMRS drive up north to Nottingham on Monday October 2nd.

Have you ever been to a gig on a Monday? Now’s your chance. A band inspired by watching Jack Black in School of Rock, featuring the talents of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong’s son Joey – a swarm is sure to form at SWMRS (pronounced swimmers).

Miss Hannah Montana’s “Rock days”? Well, check out their tribute Miley. Which will be even better live.

Tickets are of course were on sale Friday 2nd June. 

You can listen to these artists on Alexander Greensmith’s show Friday 10-12.
