Music Choice: Monday 4th - Friday 8th August

It's been a busy week musically here at Londonist as we've been previewing and reviewing the best of the music around London. On Tuesday we previewed Kitty, Daisy and Lewis' instore gig in Clerkenwell and reviewed Monday night's Rogue's Gallery at the Barbican. On Wednesday we caught the King Blues on a boat in Camden Lock ahead of their gig at Dingwalls that night. Thursday saw the possible sad demise of Sister Ray record shop, and Friday saw us giving one of you lucky lucky readers a chance to go to the Underage festival this Friday (but only if you're under 19!).

Looking ahead to this week, and musically things seems a bit, well, quiet. Most bands seem to be out and about doing the festival thing, so below is our pick of the best.

If pop is your sort of thing, then Kylie finishes her stint at the O2 on Monday night - tickets are still on sale at £49 each. Alternatively, amazing rising Swedish stars Those Dancing Days play Kingston's McClusky's on Thursday night

For those of you who like something a bit louder, then why not pop by Underworld on Thursday night when they have skacore rockers Voodoo Glow Skulls from California. Tickets are £10 a pop. The Mae Shi also play the Old Blue Last on Thursday night for the Field Day pre-party. Tickets are £7.50 each.

Like something a bit more off-kilter? Then maybe psychobilly rockers Reverend Horton Heat are your sort of thing - they play the Astoria 2 on Wednesday night - tickets are £16 a pop. Alternatively southern USA rockers Drive-By Truckers play the Electric Ballroom on Monday night - tickets are £16 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.
