Best Gigs In London This Week: 13-19 October 2014

Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects four small/medium gigs around town this week.

Monday 13 October

The Barr Brothers, Rough Trade East, Brick Lane

Over from Montreal to launch their new album Sleeping Operator. They laid down 40 tracks and then slimmed those down to the 13 that appear on the record. We love their use of a classical harp in a blues track — it sounds epic. @thebarrbrothers, @RoughTrade

Tuesday 14 October

Little Brother Eli, Surya, Kings Cross

Five piece rock and rollers from Oxford doing weird things to a song from your childhood. This is not a novelty act. Brilliant musicianship and a vocalist with power and passion. @LittleBroEli, @Surya_London

Wednesday 15 October

Elephant 12, Barfly, Camden

These guys are festival favourites (the gig is being organised by the team behind LoveBox and Great Escape). They are a three piece electro punk/rap band from east London, and will be showing off some new tracks at the gig. @Elephantwelve, @TheBarflyHQ

Thursday 16 October

Our Man In The Field, Hackney Attic

Alexander Ellis is the man behind Our Man in The Field, a name which implies an attempt to use songs to record and convey his experiences of life. He succeeds and with his band has created a beautiful self-titled EP. This gig is free entry. @OurManInTField, @HackneyAttic

Friday 17 October

Autoheart, Sebright Arms, Bethnal Green

The band have taken time out from recording their second album to play this one-off gig. Expect piano ballads, with the occasional indie or disco beat, and some stunning harmonies. They sold out when they played this venue last time so get your tickets quick. @Autoheart, @SebrightArms
