Best Gigs In London This Week: 20-26 October 2014

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

Monday 20 October

Slow Skies, Sebright Arms, Bethnal Green

This band are a Dublin duo who sometimes confuse things by adding additional band members for gigs. This track is from their latest EP Keepsake. @slowskies @SebrightArms

Wednesday 22 October

Lazy Heart Parade, Strongroom bar, Shoreditch

Lazy Heart Parade are a six piece alt. folk band started by guitarist and singer Colin Smith as a soapbox on which to tell his confessional stories about a life spent as a geographical and emotional drifter. @LazyHeartParade @StrongroomBar

Thursday 23 October

Patch and the Giant, Cecil Sharp House, Camden

This is their first London gig for five months and hopefully means they have all recovered from their summer of festivals! We saw them play at Larmer Tree last summer and they were excellent. There is sad tale behind this song involving a taxi and lost violin — if you download the song for a pound you can help replace the much loved fiddle. @patchandgiant @cecilsharphouse

Friday 24 October

Kikagaku Moyo, Shacklewell Arms, Dalston

This track is from their second record, Forest of Lost Children. The band are a five piece 'psychedelic space band' from Tokyo. Why would you not want to see that on a Friday night? @kikagaku_moyo  @ShacklewellArms

Saturday 25 October

The Rin Tins, Jamboree, Cable Street

These guys have come up from Bristol to launch their new album One More Roll of the Dice. Entry is free and there is the promise the gift of some 'Bristolian Magic' for all in attendance. The band cite 'Make them Dance' as their driving ethos. @therintins  @jamboreevenue
