Whether or not you're celebrating your nimble fingers and loving your broadband providers for helping you win the battle for Glastonbury tickets or praying for a wet and windy late June, the bands play on and in some cases such as The Kings Of Leon, on and on as they have just announced yet another date at Hammersmith on the 21st June.

Hammersmith quickly looks to be regaining it's prominence as a major player in the London venues racket, and certainly a favourite for the Americans as Beck's also doing a turn there on the 2nd June. Tickets are flying fast though.

If you prefer your tunes clouded in green smoke then maybe Tha Dogg, Snoop to his buddies, is more you're thang. We don't think you can smoke in the Wembley Pavillion these days but maybe they'll make an exception on the 12th July.

Brendan Benson brings his bright sunshine pop to dingy smoggy Camden, at the Electric Ballroom on 27th April. Supporting him will be HAL who are also doing their own headline tour. They play ULU on 27th

May. Their site has further info.

There have been more names added to the Wireless Festival, reported

by NME. Notable additions are Graham Coxon and ridiculously-coiffured The Bravery.

And it's been a long time since we've mentioned the The Pipettes. The hard-working fragrant princesses of pop play the following London dates:

Sun April 10 - The Garage, London (with Quasi)

Mon April 25 - The ICA, London (with Sleater-Kinney)

Thurs May 5 - London School of Economics

Monday May 9 - Camden Barfly
