We've had a quiet week on the music team this week - we got out and caught French shoegaze star M83 at Scala on Wednesday night and previewed "Drifting and Tilting", a night of Scott Walker's songs at the Barbican Theatre in mid November.
Looking ahead to this week, and Monday night sees Bloc Party play HMV on Oxford Street at 6pm for a free show to celebrate the release of their third album, Intimacy. Meanwhile for those who want something a bit lighthearted and jokey, The Hoosiers play Brixton Academy. Tickets are £18.50 from See Tickets.
Tuesday is the night of multiple choice as Alphabeat bring their camp, dancy Danish fun to Shepherds Bush Empire for the first night of a two night run (tickets are £12.50 each). One Night Only bring their paint by numbers "indie" to the Astoria (tickets are £12.50), Martha Wainwright brings her stuff to the Roundhouse (tickets from here), whilst New York indie rockers The Walkman play ULU (tickets are £13.50 each)
Dance-rock comes back with a vengence on Wednesday night as The Music play the Roundhouse - tickets are £15 each. Alternatively, South Wales' Stoner Doom rockers Taint play the Underworld - tickets are £6.50 each.
For your Halloween Friday, if you're not out trick 'n' treating maybe you might want to check out Underworld who play a late night show at Brixton Academy - tickets are £25 a pop. Alternatively, cult legends The Fall play Hackney Empire for the first of two nights - tickets are £20 a pop.
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.
