Nick Cave

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have invited fans to bid for places at an intimate-ish show they’re playing on 3 Nov. What’s more, the band promise that footage from the gig, which is at Koko in London, will be incorporated into Cave’s new ‘day in the life’ film ‘20,000 Days On Earth’. Live till 11 Oct, a ballot granting tickets to the show is at this link.

Moving on, Iceage have tacked on a date at London’s Old Blue Last (9 Nov) to a global trot they were doing anyway, so that’s nice. Quite relevantly given this week’s ‘Dear Miley’ letter, the band are set to release their take on Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Jackie’ as half of a seven-inch single. That and B-side, a cover of Bahumutsi Drama Group’s ‘To The Comrades’, won’t available till 18 Nov, but you can listen to the first track now on YouTube.

Also running hot in this gigs n tours round-up, it’s Scots folk-pop duo Honeyblood, who’ve posted notice on an October tour. Including a first night at Sheffield’s The Great Gatsby on 22 Oct, and concluding with one at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus on 30 Oct, its full listings can be found here. Honeyblood’s debut single ‘Bud’, just FYI, is out 4 Nov via FatCat. Sound it out here, if you like.
