Indie pop, vintage clothes by the kilo and insights on masculinity are in November's first Pick of the Week...

When:Tuesday 2 November, 6.30pm
Where: Motorpoint Arena
How Much: From £32.50

Formed in Nottingham, the indie pop band London Grammar are heading back to the city this Tuesday to play at the Motorpoint Arena. The tour follows their third studio album Californian Soil, featuring tracks like Baby I’m Yours, Californian Soil, and Lose your Head. Indie lovers unite and book a ticket for this one.


When: Tuesday 2 November
Where: Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall
How Much: From £26.50

Known for his love of dresses and insightful takes on masculinity, Grayson Perry is one of England’s most beloved artists and writers. Lucky for us, he’s heading to the Theatre Royal this Tuesday to perform A Show For Normal People. If you fancy a show all about death, existentialism and meaningless, book a ticket for this talk (apparently it’ll make you laugh).


When: Friday 5 November, 7pm
Where: The Bodega
How Much: £7

If you’ve seen this month’s magazine (if not, why not?), then you’ll already have seen our interview with Chloe Rodgers. Based in Nottingham, this young pop artist is experiencing success after success with her new EP Back to The Quay. Drawing from many different inspirations, her sound is always diverse and unpredictable. Grab a ticket for her show this bonfire night at the Bodega.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
