Meanwhile, after the NME tour finished at Brixton Academy on Saturday night, their shows continue throughout the week, with Wombats playing Shepherds Bush Empire on Monday (tickets are £18.22), and Metronomy playing Koko on Tuesday (tickets £12.34). Then Wednesday night sees the awards ceremony at Brixton Academy (featuring Franz Ferdinand amongst others), and then Thursday night head down to the O2 to catch The Cure, Franz again, White Lies and Crystal Castles (tickets are £29.36 each).
Elsewhere, there are plenty of ace bands playing all week, however a lot of the shows we'd reccomend are sold out (School of Seven Bells, Hockey and Pasion Pit). However we'd strongly suggest you check out Wichita Records' new signing First Aid Kit at the Camden Enterprise on Monday - tickets are £5 each.
We've missed out TONNES of good music that's on around London this week, but if you're going to catch something we need to know about, why not leave it in the comments below?
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.
