As everyone recovers from their extended break, this Bank Holiday Monday's music selection is a bit lacking really - a bit like our weather at the moment, really. If you want to shake away that hangover with some doom metal, then pop along to the Underworld in Camden, for Witch. Tickets are £12 each. Meanwhile, if you like things with a bit more of a bluesy tone, something a bit country from the US, then Nashville's very own Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers play the Borderline. Tickets are £13 each.
The Official start to this week sees London take on a more sensitive side as Death Cab For Cutie play a sold out show at the Electric Ballroom on Tuesday night. Just a tiny bit down the road at Koko, Lightspeed Champion plays as part of his current UK tour. Tickets are £11 each. Alternatively, if you have no self respect or music taste then Celine Dion plays the first of two nights at the O2. Tickets are £125 each.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds play the first of three consecutive nights at the Hammersmith Apollo on Wednesday night. Late early 90's indie stars from Massachusetts, Sebadoh play Koko. Tickets are £17.50 each, and Adele plays the first of two sold out nights at Shepherds Bush Empire.
New Yorkers Nada Surf play Koko on Thursday night. Tickets are £13.50 each. Pop punkers Armor for Sleep play Monto Water Rats - Tickets are £8 each. Colin MacIntyre, better known to some as Mull Historical Society, plays the Borderline for some zany folk-pop, which is sure to be entertaining. Tickets are £10 each.
To round out the week, Friday night sees US singer/songwriter for the college generation Jonathan Richman play Shepherds Bush Empire - tickets are £17.50 each. Laptop conceptualist Fennesz plays the Museum of Garden History for an evening of experimental ambience - tickets are £12 each.
We always recommend ethical gig trading site Scarlet Mist as your first port of call for tickets particularly when they're sold out, so check them out and beat the touts. Failing that Gumtree is always a friend.
