Ronnie Spector

Rounding up the latest gig news…

Pop icon Ronnie Spector (pictured) will bring her ‘Beyond The Beehive’ show to London next month, appearing in the midst of the Women Of The World Festival on 9 Mar, at Queen Elizabeth Hall. ‘Beehive’ finds Spector reminiscing on her hits, both solo and with the Ronnettes, telling stories, and showing clips and photos from throughout her life. It should be, and will be, very cool. Info here.

Scottish indie clan Camera Obscura have just this minute noted down six new shows. Running from 25 May (at Belfast’s The Empire) to 31 May (at Glasgow’s ABC), the tour supports a four-track EP, due on Record Store Day, comprising a live audio session based on the band’s fifth LP ‘Desire Lines’, which came out last year. All the gigs are listed on this page, and the session, taped last summer by CA’s label 4AD, looks and sounds like this:

America’s anti-sweetheart Sky Ferreira is flying in to London, England again in March, celebrating the strange-yet-apparently-true UK release of her very first LP, ‘Night Time, My Time’. The gig is at Oslo in London on 10 Mar. RSVP and find its relevant deets here.

Nordic showcase night Ja Ja Ja has singled out some Scandinavia-neighbouring artists to play its forthcoming edition, a show at London’s The Lexington on 27 Mar. And as is always the case, it’s an attractive line-up, this time featuring Norwegian psych kids Electric Eye, Stockholm indie-pop types Last Lynx, and rising Finnish band The Scenes.
