Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five small/medium gigs around town this week.
Tuesday 2 December
The Lake Poets and Emile Bernard, Old Blue Last, Shoreditch
This week's double bill. The amazing sound of The Lake Poets comes from just one guy (Martin) from Sunderland. Emile Bernard describes his music as "Melodramatic Popular Song/Indie". @TheLakePoets, @emilebernarduk, @theoldbluelast
Thursday 4 December
Allman Brown, Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston
This track is from Ancient Light, an EP which was released in June of this year. Allman Brown is a stunning singer/song writer and his track Sons and Daughters was featured in an episode of NBC’s hit show Parenthood. Get your £5 entry ticket now. @AllmanBrown, @ServantJazz
