A day earlier than usual, here's the Londonist skinny on next week's giggage.

Friday: So on the one hand we have glitterpunks Lorca at Purple Turtle making lots of noise and on the other Whirlwind Heat return with new album All Types Of Wood to explore new veins of art-punk sparsity at Club NME, Koko. Somewhere in the middle is another fine Blang night of anti-folk at the Luminaire with Lou Psyche, Um, Angel Racing Food and Seth of Doofus.
