Monday night sees Tom “Squarepusher” Jenkinson bring his experimental drum’n'bass with a heavy jazz fusion influence to Queen Elizabeth Hall in the Southbank Centre. Evan Parker supports, and this is sold out unfortunately, though be sure to check back for last minute availability or other sources. Lily Allen places her summer session at Somerset house, with support from Mark Ronson. Tickets are long gone, though Scarlet Mist may be useful for some. The Dykeenies bring their art rock to play Bar Academy, Islington, with £9 tickets still available.
Mika and Patrick Wolf play Somerset House on Tuesday, again sold out, though if you prefer something a bit more rock based perhaps give the Bravery a go at the Electric Ballroom. Tickets are £14 a go and are still available. Ra Ra Riot play Club Fandango at Dublin Castle along with Clap Disco, Stricken City and The Mod:Elz. Tickets are £5 each.
Hip Hop producer RJD2 plays Scala on Wednesday night, with tickets £12 a go from the usual outlets. Cajun Dance Party graces the Luminaire, though tickets are sold out. The Rakes and Pigeon Detectives play the iTunes festival, with tickets by prize draw only, and finally Americans Silversun Pickups play the 100 club.
Thursday night sees The Roots play Somerset House for their summer session, whilst DJ Shadow plays indigo2 for his last solo show of the year. Brett Anderson plays a one off exclusive acoustic show at the Union Chapel, and Mr Hudson & the Library play at Westminster Reference Library.
Gym Class Heroes play The Forum on Friday night, whilst John Peel favourites the Fall finish off a four night stand at Islington Academy – tickets are £15 a night or £50 for all four nights. Finally, Amy Winehouse is scheduled to play Somerset house, however whether she turns up is quite another matter. Nipping down to The Hawley Arms in Camden might be a better bet if you want to see her.
