Acclaimed contemporary composer Max Richter is to play a single show at the Barbican in London. Slotting in with the deluxe vinyl reissue of Richter’s debut LP, ‘Memoryhouse’, out 27 Jan, the live date falls on 24 Jan. Find info here.

Also touring in 2014 are US indie firebrands Speedy Ortiz, who’ll play six shows in mid February. Toting their well-liked first LP ‘Major Arcana’, the band start off at the Birmingham Hare And Hound on 13 Feb, with Joanna Gruesome for company.
