It's going to be a folk-rock kind of Monday. Tonight is your first chance this week to see Vancouver's Dan Mangan when he plays the Hoxton Bar and Kitchen. If you prefer your folk to have a literary or poetic inspiration, Josephine Foster will be at Café Oto.

There have been plenty of questions about the 100 Club's future lately. We recommend getting to the historic venue as soon as you can, whether for the first time or a repeat visit. Tuesday provides the perfect excuse with a solo set from sometime-Slit Viv Albertine.

Wednesday, catch improvisational, experimental trio PVT (known for the 10 years prior to now as Pivot) are playing Cargo.

Thursday's schedule offers a little something for everyone: Morose Scotsmen the Twilight Sad are playing XOYO with Errors. Micah P Hinson brings his roots-inspired new country to the Queen Elizabeth Hall. And if you just want to rock out, the Black Angels are playing Shepherd's Bush Empire, with a little help from Black Mountain.

Friday gives you another chance to catch Dan Mangan, this time at Union Chapel. Fans of '90s chilled-out surf band Sublime can get their nostalia kick at the Shepherd's Bush Empire when their latest incarnation plays with vocalist Rome Ramirez.

Finally, if the whole chill wave scene is just a little too mellow for your tastes, check out Blank Dogs, whose washed out tones still bounce along, at the Camp Basement.
