Some 'in store' appearances you might want to make a note of this week:
Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6pm at the Virgin Megastore. Turin Brakes are playing for the masses. We love 'em.
Also tomorrow: Maximo Park (see Monday Music news below) are playing and signing copies of their debut album at HMV, 150 Oxford Street, at 6.00pm.
On a more literary bent Borders are hosting Valerie Mason-John, author of Borrowed Bodies at their Charing Cross Branch at 6:30, for a signing and a talk.
And finally, if your copy of the KLF's How To Have A Number One The Easy Way is a litte dogeared and out of date now you could always try the Charing Cross Borders on 19 May for a songwriting masterclass by Chris Bradford, author of Heart & Soul – Revealing the Craft of Songwriting. Writing A No.1 Song begins at 6:30.
