Apologies to lovers of singer-songwriters and the classically inclined: This week is all about rock. Experimental rock, indie rock, pop rock, folk rock, electro rock; this is the week to rock out.
Tuesday, rhythm-driven pop band Dimbleby and Capper are at the Macbeth for the launch of their new single, "Let You Go." Across the north, Norwegian avant garde outfit Ulver are at Koko.
Wednesday, get a post-goth post-punk fix with Chapman Family and O. Children at XOYO. If you'd like more texture and fewer deep, brooding vocals, Italian minimalist rockers Husband and electro post-rockers Teeth of the Sea are at the Hoxton Bar and Kitchen.
Thursday, 80s indie fuzz band the Primitives are at the Garage.
Friday, Welsh hard rock band Funeral for a Friend are at the Garage. Also somewhat aggro, but with a more bluesy edge, Kill It Kid will be at Proud.
Dance it out Saturday night with Innerpartysystem at the other Proud (formerly Matter).
Sunday, Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble, who releases his second solo album this week, will be doing that solo thing at Union Chapel.
