Need something to get you out of the house this dingy January? Something musical to warm you up a bit? Well, there are numerous options this week around London, ranging from the up-close and intimate to the massive arena fillers.
Are you a fan of plastic pop from the US? The Pussycat Dolls play the O2 on Tuesday and Wednesday nights with Ne-Yo and Lady Gaga... Tuesday night is sold out, but tickets are still available for Wednesday at £32.50 each.
If you like your mainstream pop-punk (or are just a screaming teenage girl), then check out the Kerrang tour at Brixton Academy on Friday night, with the likes of Mindless Self Indulgence Bring Me The Horizon, Dir En Grey, Black Tide and In Case Of Fire all taking to the stage. Tickets are £14.68
If you're not such a fan of the bigger acts and want something a bit smaller, a bit more intimate then the lovely Luminaire plays host to experimental ambient musicians Lucky Dragons - tickets are £7 in advance.
Swedish pop sensation Loney Dear (pictured top) plays St Giles in the Field church on Wednesday evening. Tickets are £12 each. Alternatively, check out Madame Jo Jos (also on Wednesday evening), where Kyte and Little Death will be playing for the regular "Oh, Inverted World" evening. The £6 ticket is worth it for Kyte alone, who have amazing soundscapes that just transport you to another world.
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.
