There was no music choice last week, due to this Londonista being unorganised and at Delays' intimate gig at the Lock Tavern, which was organised by those lovely people at Clash Magazine, who have just announced the return of Clash Club, this time at 93 Feet East. On the clubbing front, Be at Proud also returns, this time at a bigger venue. We also caught up with the guys behind brilliant clubnight NoOneDied at Enterpise in Camden.
Looking ahead to this week however, and Monday night sees experimental Montreal post-rockers A Silver Mt. Zion play the first of two nights at Scala - tickets are rapidly going, so be sure to get yours from We Got Tickets for £15 each. Meanwhile London / Paris it-band The Teenagers play a sold out show at Bush Hall.
If you like your rock a bit heavier than the usual radio stuff, then Seattle screamo stars Aiden play the Astoria on Wednesday night - tickets are £14 each. For those fans of a bit more traditional indie-pop/rock, Blood Red Shoes play KCLSU - tickets are £8.50 each.
Portishead make their live return to the capital by playing Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday, however good luck getting tickets - they sold out in minutes. José González plays the first of two nights at Shepherds Bush Empire. Paul Weller also plays a sold out Teenage Cancer Trust Show at the Royal Albert Hall.
To round out the week, go and see quite possibly the most interestingly named line up of the week at the indigO2 on Friday, where 65daysofstatic, Gay for Johnny Depp and Dark Captain Light Captain all play. Tickets are £15 each. Alternatively back at the Hammersmith Apollo, KT Tunstall plays her radio-friendly tunes - tickets are almost all gone, but there are a few left at £25 each.
We always recommend ethical gig trading site Scarlet Mist as your first port of call for tickets particularly when they're sold out, so check them out and beat the touts. Failing that Gumtree is always a friend.
