HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri 8 - Leon Bridges at Brixton Academy
The Fort Worth, Texas soul prodigy hits Brixton with his seductive take on classic soul and doo wop. Still only 26, Bridges still has some way to go before he hits the heartbreaking peak of the true greats, but he's definitely on the right track.
