Music Choice: 19-25 July

Everyone's favourite ice cream sponsored festival is coming up this weekend: Ben and Jerry's Nuts about Fairtrade Sundae is this Saturday and Sunday in Clapham Common. Tickets are sold out, so here's what we've got to fill the void if you're not lucky enough to have your gigs sorted for the week:

The week is starting off a bit slow, but Wednesday the sugar-sweet folk pop of Allo Darlin' will be at Luminaire.

Thursday offers lots of variety. For the rap lovers out there, Themselves will be kicking it old school while waxing topical at Camp. For the indie rockers, Larsen B will be celebrating the release of their album, Musketeer at the Silver Bullet. And finally, alt-country titan Howe Gelb will be at Barbican for a one-off performance with Giant Sand.

Friday night, Rought Trade East is celebrating three years at their Brick Lane location and the publication of Document and Eyewitness: An Intimate History of Rough Trade by Neil Taylor. British Sea Power will help them celebrate with a live set.

Saturday, electro instrumentalists Gallops will be at the Notting Hill Arts Club in the evening. You also have another all-day option with record label Tough Love's fifth birthday party at the Stag's Head. Performances will come from Graffiti Island, Becoming Real, and Cymbals.

Round out your week on an avant garde note with Toronto's John Kameel Farah, who will be playing a melange of classical piano and Arabic-inspired dubstep at the Vortex Jazz Club.
