14th March 

sir Was, The Lexington, London (See Tickets) 

sir Was returns to the UK to play a handful of shows and we’re definitely recommending him for March’s live show to go to. His music is built around supple grooves, voices ricocheting off one another, and different musical styles, creating a very unique landscape of sounds.

You don’t often see such an amazing line-up, and these three bands are going to impress you with their performances. If you love guitar music this is your night! From the established indie rock band The Vaccines, to the pop-punk queens that are Dream Wife, and infectious guitar playing of Whenyoung, this is a night you don’t want to miss.

22nd March, Mulatu Astatke, Barbican Centre, London (See Tickets)

Legendary Ethiopian musician and arranger Mulatu Astatke returns to The Barbican this March. Known as the father of Ethio-Jazz this is a night for fusions of western jazz with Ethiopian modes, a show we truly recommend here at ROM.
