Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five free gigs around town this week.
Monday 2 June
Magdalena Wolk, The Finsbury, Manor House
Magdalena is a London-based singer songwriter. The photo on her facebook page implies that her song writing is done on her bed with the aid of a couple of bottles of red wine. First 50 tickets are free, after that they are £3. @TheFinPub
Thursday 5 June
Jenny Said Yes, Tooting Tram and Social
Focussing on ‘savagery, belonging and loneliness’, don’t expect light-hearted ditties. Do expect passion, pain and some beautifully crafted tracks from this free concert. @JennySaidYes plays @TootingTram
Bambi, The Bedroom Bar, Shoreditch
They are not as ‘cutesy’ as their name implies. This is a great guitar-led Indie band. Ethereal without making you feel like you have taken something you shouldn’t have. @BambiHQ plays @Bedroom_Bar
Cortes, The Blue Kitchen, Camden
They recently supported Catfish and the Bottlemen at Dingwalls and Chasing Grace at Barfly, so they are definitely hanging out with the right people! Catchy indie, delivered with power and passion — just as it should be. @CortesBand plays @TheBluesKitchen
Friday 6 June
H.A.M., The George Tavern, Shadwell
They host a regular night at The George Tavern which is really worth checking out. Their tracks never fall short and could easily stand up next to more well known indie acts. @weareHAM plays @GeorgeTavernE1
