Welcome to ‘Editor’s Picks’, a brand new feature here at Eventim where we hand pick a selection of forthcoming events from some of the most exciting acts around. Updated weekly, you can guarantee that if an event receives the editor’s seal of approval – it’s worthy of your hard earned cash.
AlunaGeorge // Tickets
Part of an incredibly exciting new breed of acts where the sound of the underground dub step and bass scene emerging from South London is bleeding into the mainstream. Current single ‘Your Drums, Your Love’ a firm fixture on daytime radio and a full UK tour planned throughout November ahead of the release of their forthcoming debut, 2013 is set to be a huge year for Aluna Francis and George Reid.

Foxes, Faye and Syron // Tickets
Three of the most exciting female pop acts come together for this special show in Soho courtesy of London based promoters White Heat. At just 19, Syron is one of the most exciting young talents orbiting the blogosphere right now. The sweet soulful voice that featured on the smash hit single ‘Spoons’ from East London quartet Rudimental earlier this year takes a step into the limelight with ‘Breaking’ – her debut single for uber hip dance label Black Butter.
Stockholm based Faye finely weaves a blend of electronica and pop that consistently leaves an indelible impression on all who listen in. Described by The Guardian as “spectacular” and The Independent citing her as a “formidable creative force” whilst MTV state that the young Swedish singer is “poised to meet all expectations”.
Foxes is in actual fact just one – Louisa Rose Allen. The Southampton-born 22 year-old followed her big sister to London the day she turned 18. She tried her hand at studying music but dropped out when she realised it wasn’t the studying part that she enjoyed. With ‘Youth’ (and its mournful b-side ‘Home’, and resulting remixes) having so far garnered over a million combined Soundcloud and YouTube plays, and 1,250 Hypemachine ‘likes’ between them, it’s unlikely she’ll be heading back to classanytime soon.

First Aid Kit // Tickets
Swedish siblings Klara and Johanna Söderberg continue their ascent to household name status with their second album The Lion’s Roar. Released at the start of 2012 and produced by Mike Mogis (of Bright Eyes fame) – the record saw the sisters take a massively bold step forward. Their harmonious acoustic folk songs of yore evolving into spectacular Americana flecked anthems that have become a mainstay on daytime radio, summer festivals and Jack White’s iPod. First Aid Kit are a very special proposition indeed.
