Music Choice: Monday 18th - Friday 22nd August

This week we've been a bit quiet as we gear up for bank holiday weekend, but have managed to bring you some pictures from the Underage Festival for those of us sadly too old to have gone, a review of the brilliant Dodos at the 100 Club and the marvellous Kings of Leon at Brixton Academy.

Future of the Left

Looking ahead to this week however and Miami based melodic hardcore punks As Friends Rust play the Underworld on Monday night - tickets are £10 each. Meanwhile in the East, Field Music’s Peter Brewis brings his new project, The Week That Was to 93 Feet East - tickets are £8 a pop.

Tuesday's highlights include a night of ingeniously named bands at the Borderline: death metallers Despised Icon are joined by Take a Worm for a Walk. Tickets are on sale now at £10 each. Fancy something a bit lighter? Then James Yorkston plays the Roundhouse - seats are £15 each.

Like MGMT's crazy electro pop? Then you'll love Yeasayer who play KCLSU on Wednesday night. Tickets are £11 each, but going quickly. Welsh noise rockers Future of the Left play Water Rats - tickets are £7 each.

Tokyo Police Club plays ULU on Thursday night ahead of their new album later this year. Tickets are £9.50 each. Alternatively go star spotting when Tenacious D sideproject Trainwreck play Dingwalls. Tickets are £12.50.

Friday night is rather quiet as most bands and people migrate out of the city for Bank Holiday weekend. However if you're sticking around we'd suggest you check out Noughts and Crosses at the Buffalo Bar - they only have demos up at the moment, but they sound like they have some promise.

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.
