Roll on Autumn. Evol and Wingwalker are packing a punch this fall with a string of stunners, both home grown and globe spanning. But we had to bring this one to your attention with immediate effect.

Who: One of the most incendiary live acts around, White Denim are SevenStreets’ second favourite Austin outfit (after the mighty Spoon, of course) but, if pushed, we’d have to admit this four piece probably has the edge, in the living breathing flesh. Their dubby stew of blues, rock, soul and psych is setting stages alight – just as their searing, genre-defying latest set, D, has been stirring up the critics. Rock and Roll never sounded as restless, or as fun.

Where: White Denin and The Royal Bangs, with The Loud O2 Academy Liverpool – £8 advance – 14 + doors 7pm – 10:30pm

When: 31 August
