NYC wonk-pop trio Battles make a return to town this month, hot on the heels of their completely brilliant new album ‘La Di Da Di’. Their gig at the Kazimier in 2011 was one of the most memorable we ever saw at the venue, so we’re rather looking forward to seeing what they’ve got in store for us this time around when they roll up at the O2 Academy. They’re one of the best live bands in the world – all nervous energy, jittery juddering and sweaty stretched-out jams that sound like they’re about to have a panic attack and collapse at any moment.

23 March
Liverpool O2 Academy
£17.50, 7pm
