Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five small/medium gigs around town this week.
Monday 21 July
Fyfe, The Social, Oxford Circus
Fyfe is the name currently being used by Paul Dixon (he has previously performed under different names). In the past he has done covers and remixes but this track is 100% his own work and I love the the 80s style sax solo. Tonight he performs at The Social. @thisisfyfe, @thesociallondon
Wednesday 23 July
The Very Most, The Buffalo Bar, Highbury and Islington
The perfect summer indie track. We want to hear this on our way to a lazy afternoon on the beach — we can do that tonight in Highbury and Islington as well. Their new EP, called Things Too Obvious to Sing, is out on My Little Owl Records. @theverymost, @thebuffalobar
Thursday 24 July
Minor Signal, Bedroom Bar, Shoreditch
This week’s shameless favourite. Mirror Signal is 19 year old Steven Barker from Suffolk. Getting into music around the age of nine, and writing since the age of 12, he has grown into a keen songwriter and producer. @MirrorSignal, @Bedroom_Bar
Friday 25 July
Houdini Dax, The Monarch, Camden
This band are a three piece from Cardiff. They are raising the funds for their latest album via crowd funding and have released this track as a free download to thank fans for their continued support. @HoudiniDax, @camdenmonarch
Saturday 26 July
Littlemores, The Lexington, Angel
