Weekly Gig Roundup 2nd-8th September

Every week, Birmingham Promoters brings you a wealth of live music from varying musical genres at venues across the city centre. If you’re looking to find a new band to fall in love with or you can’t choose which event to go to, take a read of our new weekly gig guide to help you to decide how best to spend those evenings!


On Wednesday 4th, local post-hardcore outfit Layers play a very special stripped back set for us at The Yardbird Jazz Club. Treating us to a preview of their forthcoming debut EP, Til Deaf Do Us Part released on 16th September, Layers are supported by Birmingham pop-punk heroes Templeton Pek, who will also be performing a rare acoustic set. For more information on this not to be missed free entry show, take a look at the event page and RSVP to the Facebook event.

On Friday 6th, we welcome Broken Witt Rebels to the stage at The Victoria. A classic rock sound deftly intertwined with elements of soulful blues and americana, the Birmingham quartet also have character in abundance. Supported by sixties rock ‘n’ roll-style five-piece, The Hounds, tickets for this event are priced at £5 and further information can be found here.

On to the weekend and on Saturday 7th we welcome Teesside tribute outfit, The Southmartins to The Institute in Digbeth. Playing a mix of classics from both The Beautiful South and The Housemartins, there’ll also be DJs spinning some records to keep you moving in between. Head on over to the event page for further information and to purchase advance tickets, priced at £7.

Or if that’s not your thing, ‘the Midlands answer to Gil Scott Heron’, Barnesy, is live at The Sunflower Lounge. Think Bob Dylan meets Jamie T. Playing his first gig in Birmingham in a lengthy amount of time, Barnesy is supported by singer / songwriter Dale Hanson. Tickets are priced at £4 on the door – check out the event page for further information and RSVP to the Facebook event, here.

Then, bring your week to a relaxing close at our weekly Sunday Social event at The Yardbird on Sunday 8th. Having previously invited some of most promising acts from across the midlands to the stage, this week we continue in the same fashion with the delicate sounds of Jenna Varndell, Titus Waldenfels, Ed Geater and Nix Dadry. Soak up the beauty of some of the most talented acoustic acts around in the gorgeous surrounds of The Yardbird all for free – for further information, take a look at the event page.

Whoever you choose to leave the sofa for this week, stay safe and find some new music to fall in love with from the brilliant array on offer.
