Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Hailing from Ayrshire and comprising Janine Shilstone and Hamish Reilly, rising melodic rockers VUKOVI are currently gearing up for a headline show at London’s Underworld, arriving in the capital on 4 June 2019.
The date follows the recent release of singles C.L.A.U.D.I.A, the video for which is available to watch below, and their celebrated inclusive sign language video for Behave.
With their self-titled album released back in 2017, the duo have been busy making big waves on the alternative live scene across the country, with various festival appearances under their belt.
Supported by BBC Radio 1 among others, this year will also see them take to stages at All Points East and 2000trees Festival as well as their own headline shows across the UK.
Speaking of their forthcoming headline show, the band say: “We want VUKOVI to be a community for the unique and quirky. Dress code: orange + onsite glitter station. Go bright or go home. Come be weird with us.”

Ahead of VUKOVI’s colourful headline show at The Underworld in London, check out the songs that will be soundtracking their time on the road:
Dirty Loops- Sexy Girls
“This is one of the first tunes we’ll put on when in the green room getting ready for a set. It gets us up on our feet, it’s such a club jam.”
Poppy ft. Grimes – Play Destroy
“This song is so ahead of its time and we’ll always play it in our dressing room over some vodka-Redbulls when we’re hanging out with friends before a show.”
Die Antwoord- I Fink U Freaky
“I love how original these guys are, always pushing boundaries. This is another tune that always gets us pumped before a set.”
Panic At The Disco – I Write Sins Not Tragedies
“This is always the song we play right before a set. I’ll turn it up full and sing my lungs out to it. It’s a great vocal warm up track.”
The Midnight – Shadows
“After a hectic show our Tour Manager/Driver will put this on in the van while we drive to our digs for the night. It’s a great song to wind down to.”
