Music Choice: 21-27 February

Start your week in gigs off tonight with a little mood music from classically influenced pianist Dustin O'Halloran at Vortex. For mood music with distortion pedals, chill wavers Cloud Nothings will play their first show of the week at Barfly.

Tuesday, Brooklyn's post-hardcore beardniks Les Savy Fav will be at Heaven. Super Furry frontman Gruff Rhys will be at Cadogan Hall with Welsh instrumental electropoppers Y Niwi.

Wednesday, folk slinging Scottish gentleman — and recently published authorJames Yorkston is at St Giles Church. For a little more grit, Cold War Kids are at Koko with support from Wye Oak.

Thursday, Psych-rockers the Black Angels will be at Heaven, alt-rockers Dinosaur Pile-Up will be at the Garage, and if you missed them Monday, Cloud Nothings are playing another show at Camp.

Friday, the Øya and Field Day festivals are curating an evening at Koko with Not Squares headlining.

Saturday, hip-hop artist Ne-Yo will be at the O2 Arena. For something more rock oriented and low-key, Kiwis the Phoenix Foundation will be at the Borderline.

Sunday is the screening of Vincent Moon's new film, An Island, with a live performance from the stars, Efterklang, at Scala. Or, if you've yet to catch British Sea Power this year, they'll be at the Forum with suport from Team Me.
