Big Bad Wolf at The Dark Horse
My what big hairy tunes you have. The unique and indispensable Big Bad Wolf bring horizontal vibes and a rampant musical eclecticism to The Dark Horse. Unshackled by the limits of genre the London based four piece paint wonderfully laconic pictures in sound with a deceptively lazy energy. Check out their supremely chilled latest album Pond Life here.

Pigeonhole at 1000 Trades

The Birmingham Comedy Festival (Free) Half-Dayer at Cherry Reds and The Victoria
Eight events, two venues, Sunday afternoon sorted. You may wear out some shoe leather flitting between two of the city’s finest bars but for the comedy acts available it’s most definitely worth it. Or you could of course take root in one place as every show is a winner. Don’t miss Josh Pugh, the 2016 comedian of the year is a punnery master with an absurdist take on life. Also recommended are Gareth Berliner, Hannah Silvester and Jay Islaam.

Under The Same Roof ft. The Day Ends at The Edge
A free showcase of engineered eclecticism and innovative, inclusive live music brought to life by the prolific bandleader Matthew Philip Hale.

Experimental rhythms from The CPM Connection and Beats by Sean are joined by a new lineup and new set from political punk antagonists The Day Ends. Life-affirming, unpredictably raw art.
