The Best Gigs To See In London This Week

Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects ten recommended gigs around town this week.

Monday 25 November

Iyes, Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston

https://soundcloud.com/weareiyes/til-infinity

This is the latest single from this electronic indie duo, which is available on iTunes. They are from Brighton and due to headline the Brighton Dome later this month. Event Details

I Am In Love, The Old Blue Last, Shoreditch

https://soundcloud.com/i-am-in-love/my-heart-your-soul-1

These guys have been off touring Germany recently but are now back on home ground to play a free gig at the Old Blue Last. Event Details

Tuesday 26 November

The Moth & The Flame, Sebright Arms, Bethnal Green

https://soundcloud.com/themoththeflame/how-we-woke-up-2

From their debut album, which they have kindly put up on soundcloud.com. If you like this, buy their new album which is called '&'. The band are a three piece currently working out of LA but are originally from Utah. Event Details

Manu Dibango, The Barbican

At 79 , Manu Dibango still has plenty to give. He is a sax legend both in his home country of Cameroon and across the globe. Event Details

Wednesday 27 November

Keebo, Strongroom Bar and Kitchen, Shoreditch

I think this is an all-female band, but I don't know whether 'Rhapsody' is a girl's or a boy's name. Anyway, lets play it safe and just say they are a five piece from London. Event Details

Thursday 28 November

Beachwalk Canvas, The Troubadour, Earls Court

https://soundcloud.com/beachwalkcanvas/winter-coat

This week's 'Shameless Favourite'! It says on their website that they have just recorded 10 new tracks so an album launch would appear to be imminent. Beachwalk Canvas are from West London and only formed last year. This track is beautifully subtle. Event Details

The JB Conspiracy, Barfly, Camden Town

This track is from their new album 'Storm', which was released this month. This gig marks the band coming to the end of a national tour. Event Details

Friday 29 November

Scarlett's Roses, Charlie Wrights, Hoxton

https://soundcloud.com/scarletts-roses/truth-be-told

This is their latest single, which is available on iTunes. Ska-ish indie beats. Event Details

Ruarri Joseph, The Miller, Borough Market

This Cornish singer has a beautifully relaxed tone and plays to my stereotype that everyone from Newquay is a chilled out surfer. It's a great video too. Event Details
