Music Choice: 13-19 December

The Christmas season is officially upon us, which means chances are you have at least one office party to attend and who knows how many other engagements. But it's also the season for festive label parties and Christmas singles. In addition to your weekly rocking out, here are a few chances to get into the holiday spirit:

Tonight, off-kilter singer songwriter Sam Amidon is at Café Oto. He shares the bill with Hannah Peel, whom we were gushing about last week.

Tuesday, Frankie Rose, formerly of Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls, and other cool Brooklyn bands, is making her London debut with her band the Outs at the Luminaire. Also on the bill are the hotly tipped Banjo or Freakout, so show up early. Making good on our Christmasy promises, the Boy Least Likely To have just released a Christmas record, so much which they will surely play at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen.

Wednesday, Damaged Goods Records are having their Christmas Party at the 100 Club. On the bill for the celebrations are Tender Trap, Betty and the Werewolves, and a yet to be disclosed special guest (dare we hope for a Billy Childish project?).

Thursday gives you your first chance to see Singing Adams, the new project from Steven Adams, formerly of Broken Family Band, at XOYO. If you miss out on Thursday, or your life is changed by the experience, you'll have another chance to see Adams on Sunday at the Windmill.

Friday, Left With Pictures are having a Christmas Party of their own to launch their second album, In Time. You can hear them play the new album live and in complete order at the Slaughtered Lamb.

Saturday, psych poppers the Clientele are at the Borderline. For something of a post-New Wave persuasion, the Radio Dept. are at the Forum.
