Mid Week Music News

Tonight: Fancy a little danceable punchy guitar driven night out? Perhaps you might like to catch The Sunshine Underground at Dingwalls.

Friday: With some grand new material Kaibosh are keeping busy this year taking it to the road. We'll bring you a review of their new EP as soon as we have it but in the meantime you can catch them at Clockwork, 66-68 Pentonville Road N1, doors at 8.

We like trains, as long as they run on time and aren't full of commuters. We also like iLiKETRAiNS and so are torn as to whether we should also try to get to the Barfly on Friday. Apparently they all dress as British Rail staff and their fans are called RAiLCARD HOLDERS. A bit like early Explosions In The Sky with vocals, their latest single is all about Captain Scott's doomed 1912 expedition to the Antarctic.

Sunday: Music From the Ether, a performance from Japanese 10 Piece Theremin Ensemble: Mable. Masami Takeuchi, Japan’s first professional Thereminist and inventor of the matrioshka shaped theremin, performs at Ginglik, 1 Shepherd’s Bush Green, on his European tour. Together with his advanced students from Japan they have formed Mabel, the only Theremin ensemble that can emulate a full orchestra. Doors at 7 and perfomance starts at 8.30. Eight squids on the door. It'll be like being locked in your own 60s sci-fi horror movie siundtrack only better. Or weirder. One for any Sterolab fans out there.

Wednesday It must be Blang night at the 12 Bar Club. This month London's premiere anti-folk club brings you: Albino, Ben Calvert, Simon Kitchener , Sergeant Buzfuz and late sets from Phoebe Kreutz (check out the awesome Everyone In England, everyone in England looks like Coldplay...) and Dibs. £5 entry, doors 7.30, bar ‘till 1 am.
