Listen to Davina & The Vagabonds here. Beautiful music to mooch to! The band are over from their home in Minnesota on a UK tour taking in Birmingham, Edinburgh and Newcastle. Tonight you can listen to their blues tunes at The Half Moon in Putney. @DavinaVagabonds, @HalfMoonPutney

Thursday 17 July

Diaz, Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen, Shoreditch

The band are launching their debut album Vancouver and this gig is the official release. Also playing that night are the amazing EditSelect.

Friday 18 July

Dead Flowers & Joe Innes & The Cavalcade, The Gallery Cafe, Bethnal Green

This week's double bill. Dead Flowers: this man's voice is pure gravelly gold! This track is from his debut album which was written while travelling from New York to Montreal. Joe Innes & The Cavalcade: the band recently released an EP called Brian, I'm a genius too, which you can hear on their SoundCloud page. @thedeadflowers, @joeinnes, @The_GalleryCafe

Saturday 19 July

Smiling Ivy, Hootananny, Brixton

An explosive and outspoken band from Sheffield. Their tracks are political and pack a punch. This is from their Tastefully Disgraceful EP which they released last year.
