Gig highlights 11-17 Oct

‘Some people call me the space cowboy, some call me the gangster of love.’ Yes, that’s right, the Steve Miller Band is still going strong and on Gallic shores this week, along with Santana, John Mayall and The Doobie Brothers. But, if 70s throwbacks aren’t your thing, don’t worry there is still plenty to whet your palette. There are two real narratives running parallel to the 70s parade: post-rock inventive instrumentalism and introverted folksy musings. The former being aptly delivered by the impressively bewildering Maps and Atlases at Point Ephémère, and the Frankenstein monster of post-rock bands, Red Sparowes at La Maroquinerie two days later. In the other corner, Micah P Hinson, one of the few singer/songwriters under the age of 30 who I would be interested in reading the autobiography of. After a packed-out performance at the Fleche d’Or this summer, there will be a clamour for tickets to catch him in action at Théâtre Marigny. His delicate yet forceful folk stylings will serve as the final ribbon round a week which also includes both The Swell Season and Tom McRae. And without forgetting Swedish indie pop-rockers Shout Out Louds, who have supported everyone from the Kings of Leon to The Strokes but are yet to make the step up  in to the big arena. It may be worth venturing up to La Maroquinerie on Wednesday so one day you can say ‘I remember when…’. MT
