Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five free gigs around town this week.
Monday 5 May
Richard Maule, Proud, Camden
This gig is part of another full day of free music at Proud in Camden. The lineup is huge and features a variety of musician but Richard was our pick of the bunch — he is on at 2.30pm.
Wednesday 7 May
BRNS, Old Blue Last, Shoreditch
Their full album, PATINE, is set for a late August 2014 release. BRNS are visiting from Brussels as part of a tour, which will see them play venues throughout the UK, France and Germany. Their free gig tonight is a rare chance to see them in London.
Friday 9 May
Harleighblu, Hootenanny, Brixton
It is a steal to be able to see an artist like this for only £3! Or its free if you get there before 10pm. This artist is from Nottingham and recently signed to the Tru Thoughs record label.
Joe Innes & The Cavalcade, The Monarch, Camden
The band have promised to releases a new EP very soon, but in the meantime enjoy this single from one of their earlier releases. One of the other tracks on their EP is inspired by finding a dead rat and burying it — as you do. When was the last time you asked yourself “How clever is my velociraptor?”. Find your answer at the gig tonight.
Sunday 11 May
Russell Joslin & French For Rabbits, The Harrison
This weeks double bill – and it’s free.
Russell Joslin — A fantastic singer/songwriter. His songs speak of regret, anger and love. He is amazing live.
French for Rabbits — Beautiful track from this New-Zealand-based, dream pop duo. They are touring the north of England and then return to London to play the Finsbury on the 19th.
