The end of October is here, bringing with it the opportunity to either celebrate or ignore Halloween. Festive or not, there are plenty of options this week to get your musical fix.
Tuesday, rhythm-driven synth rockers the Woe Betides are launching their album Never Sleep at the Buffalo Bar.
On Wednesday, former Libertine and Dirty Pretty Thing Carl Barat is bringing his solo project to Scala. Screaming Females, a band who live up exactly to their name (except for the plural), are at the Luminaire. And for something outside the indie rock sphere, Walls are playing Heaven.
Brave the trains on Saturday and catch Youthless and their garage-dirtied club beats at the New Cross Inn.
For Halloween itself, the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Diasaster are having a Halloween ball at Heaven, and electronica duo Zombie Zombie are playing the songs of John Carpenter at Corsica Studios.
