Music Choice: Monday 3rd - Friday 7th November

This week we've had a bit of a quiet one, catching Ólafur Arnalds and Finn at the Union Chapel for some ethereal folk and Sigur Ros like tunes and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also got a tiny bit excited about Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlitt's new project, starting on Saturday at the O2.

The Killers

Monday night sees The Killers play the Royal Albert Hall for Radio 1, though as expected tickets are long gone. Alternatively, if you like something a bit heavier, Enter Shikari play the Astoria 2 - a handful of tickets are available from See Tickets are £17.50 a pop. Finally, if you want some fun, non-taxing indie pop then Ra Ra Riot (who we caught at Water Rats in August) play Hoxton Bar and Grill - tickets are £7.50 each.

If you're not glued to your TV on Tuesday night to find out who the next President of the USA is, then you might want to catch some feel-good pop from The Feeling at the Hammersmith Apollo - tickets are £25 each. If that's not your thing, you might want to catch some German Trance from Cascada at Shepherds Bush Empire - tickets are £23.50 each.

Irish punk stars Flogging Molly play the Astoria on Wednesday evening. Tickets are a rather reasonable £16.50 each. Alternatively Bryan Adams plays the O2 for fans of something a bit easier on the ears, but not the pockets at £37.50 a ticket.

Thursday night sees charming Folksy balladeer Seth Lakeman plays Shepherds Bush Empire - tickets are £17.50 each.

To round out the week, Queen and Paul Rodgers play the O2 on Friday night, though most tickets have long gone. If that isn't your scene (what's wrong with you??) then maybe some US indie will be more your sort of thing - Cold War Kids bring their alternative sound to the Astoria - tickets are £14 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.
