October 2021 Hertfordshire Gig Guide

September didn’t pan out the way I expected. I seriously damaged my arm which meant I couldn’t drive for three weeks. Plus at the beginning of September I heard stories of inflections at some smaller venues where there was a mix of young and old. London venues tend to have an older crowd. But it’s pretty much the mix of my local venues which also suffer from having no fresh air mixed air conditioning. I had planned to go to several of the Horn gigs and two at Club 85. Some were actually cancelled in the end. But I decided to give the rest a miss.

5th October – Roddy Woomble, The Horn

Lead singer of Idlewild playing his solos material.

7th October – King Nun, The Horn

12th October – October Drift, The Horn (Postponed)

I’m not too fused about October Drift musically. But they do put on a good show.

14th October – Avalanche Party, The Horn

A much underrated band. Excellent live. I think I will mask up, and chance this gig

19th October – Haunt the Woods, The Horn

Playing indie folk wth haunting melodies. I’m not use if their music will translate to live. But worth giving them a try. I think this is a rescheduled gig from last year.I’m sure I planned to see this band at the Horn before lockdown.

20th October – Coach Party (Postponed) , The Horn

Infectious indie pop band that have been on several one to watch’ lists. Their recent ‘After Party’ EP was great.

26th October – Gender Roles, The Horn

Jangly indie punk

27th October – Moon Panda, The Horn

Dreamy indie pop from Denmark and California

30th October – Jazz UP!, Club 85

Presents saxophonist Emma Rawicz
