Some weeks are pretty heavy on the acoustic artists visiting town. While this week is peppered with a few singer-songwriters, it's pretty exciting how many of the bands literally push buttons. There are plenty of options this week if you want to take leave of guitar-centric music:

Kick off the week with the first showing of Vancouver's Brasstronaut, who are more spacey than they are brassy.

Former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt has teamed up with saxaphonist Gilad Atzmon and violinist Ros Stephen. Wyatt/Atzmon/Stephen will be at Scala Tuesday and Wednesday.

For the indie rockers amongst you, Tuesday night brings freak folkers Maps + Atlases to Cargo. Meanwhile, online reference lovers Ambassadors of Morocco will be at the Queens Head.

Wednesday brings nouveau shoegaze collective Mice Parade to Corsica Studios.

Thursday offers a few options for indie with dance beats. Archie Bronson Outfit will put a lo-fi spin on things at Scala with a little help from the Victorian English Gentlmens Club. Or, if you'd prefer something more electronic, Gallops and Metronomy will be at the Barbican.

Friday night will also take you in two different directions. Those of you looking to unwind after a long week should check out singer-songwriter Peasant at the Slaughtered Lamb. If you'd rather dance away the cares of the work week, Hercules and Love Affair will be of-site at the Frieze Art Fair with a little help from Telepathe and Hype Williams.
