Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects four small/medium gigs around town this week.
Monday 27 October
Habitats, Old Blue Last, Shoreditch
Three-piece London act Habitats have a one month residency at the Old Blue Last. As well as playing themselves, they'll be introducing audiences to some great up-and-coming acts. @HabitatsMusic @theoldbluelast
Tuesday 28 October
The Starkins & Glass Caves,Buffalo Bar, Highbury and Islington
This week's double bill. This single is launched the day of this gig. The band are from York and the surrounding area and have youthful exuberance by the bucket load.
This gig is part of massive national tour for the band which saw the first four nights sell out.
Wednesday 29 October
Fifi Rong, Barfly, Camden
Strange, chilling, beautiful and that is just her voice. Originally from Beijing, Fifi Rong is a unique singer-songwriter and producer currently living in London — catch her at this gig. @fifirong @TheBarflyHQ
Friday 31 October
Cosines, The Windmill, Brixton
This week's shameless favourite is Cosines' Hey Sailor Boy!
Cosines are a mathematical pop band from north London - which is a bit weird but then so are they. "Boy I love you, but I'm a girl Pirate," they merrily sing. We don't understand them but we like them. Quite a lot. Catch them at this Halloween Spooktacular. @cosinesband @WindmillBrixton
Saturday 1 November
La Luz - Shackle Arms, Dalston
