Dig out your Halloween costume for this one. Fucked Up bring their annual Halloween party to London and there are prizes for the best dressed too. No tricks here, just treats.
Anna Calvi at Shepherd’s Bush Empire
Anna Calvi blew us away earlier in the year in Shepherd’s Bush, again at Field Day and we reckon she will make it a hattrick at this sold out show. One of our artists of the year.
Zulu Winter at CAMP Basement
New kids on the block Zulu Winter have been impressing all and sundry with their epic live show, huge first single (out on King Maker label Double Denim) and finding their way on to the likes of Pitchfork and The Guardian too. A big tip for next year, get onboard earlier at CAMP.
GOTYE at Kings College
Another sold out show brings Australian based and hugely fun Gotye to London. Those who got with this evening plan early had the right idea, kicking off the party season with gusto.
Duologue at Electrowerkz
Tender and deceptively big productions from Duologue are the order of the day here. Duologue has excellent taste too, as evidenced by his recent mix for us. In support is the brilliant Throwing Snow too.
Chairlift upstairs at Electrowerkz
Early architects of the current chillwave scene, Brooklyn duo CHAIRLIFT’s early stated aims included making music for haunted houses, an apt intention for their ethereal sound.
Coming to the attention of the masses after their single Bruises was used on an iPod ad the band have built up a much-deserved cult following.
The King Krule/Zoo Kid project has been quite slow burn - surprising when you consider the tender age, but looking back at ‘Out Getting Ribs’ from earlier this year it still packs the same punch. The EP is brilliant and really unique in the UK at the moment.
We are thrilled to announce Korallreven at the Shacklewell Arms on Monday 12th December. The Swedish electro-pop duo have revealed the details and track listing for their debut full-length, An Album By Korallreven, to be released on Acéphale on November 15. The duo are celebrating the album’s forthcoming release with a mixtape entitled A Dream Within A Dream, featuring Britney Spears, Ciara, and more. Download the mix here.
We’re in for a spooky night at Fucked Up’s Halloween party next Monday at the Scala. The band will be in costume joined by Eagulls and Cold Pumas. Halloween costumes are compulsory and prizes go to the best dressed. For tickets click here
Brookyln pop duo Chairlift have revealed the latest taste of their forthcoming album Something. To listen to the single ‘Sidewalk Safari’ click here. The band release their debut album ‘Something’ on the 23rd January.
Make sure you don’t miss their show next Thursday at Electrowerkz. For tickets click here
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the return of James Yorkston singing songs to make us all feel festive. We are very excited to announce that James will be joined by BBC 6 music legend Josie Long and the mesmerising Pictish Trail. For tickets click here
Zulu Winter visited Black Can Sessions this week with their perfect, epic synth pop. To watch their stripped back ‘Black Cab Sessions’ version of ‘Let’s Move BAck To Front’ click here

You might already have heard Youth Lagoon, and his fantastic debut record ‘Year of Hibernation’ but he just keeps growing in confidence and continuing to impress us. Check out this new live clip for evidence:
Thanks to our friends The Line of Best Fit for announcing our competition yesterday. Here’s how they eloquently explained the comp and how to enter on our FACEBOOK:
In the spirit of good will and togetherness our buddies over at Eat Your Own Ears want you to tell a friend / potential life partner / family member / stranger about a gig you’d like to take them to this Autumn.
All you need to do is ‘tag’ your chosen friend on Eat Your Own Ears Facebook wall and invite them to one of the gigs below. Rave about a band, complain about how you haven’t seen them for months, or ask them out on an intimate date to watch the sweet and calming sounds of Iceage (pictured above).
We will cherry pick the best invites over the next week or so and give away a pair of tickets per day! Easy. Yes?
So, the following shows are eligible for the competition. (All concerts listed are taking place in London. For more details visit:www.eatyourownears.com/events)

Producer Dauwd (pictured, above) has been blowing up slowly for a few months too. The penny is dropping with his latest (and greatest) hitting the likes of Fluokids and The Fader as well as some support from Boiler Room. Listen to the new single:
