Best Gigs In London This Week: 1-7 December 2014

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

https://soundcloud.com/thelakepoets/windowsill-1

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

https://soundcloud.com/allmanbrown/foolish-love-2

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

Friday 5 December

Milly Upton, The Distillers, Hammersmith

https://soundcloud.com/millyupton/barcelona

Enjoy the stunning vocals of Milly Upton. This track is just a demo and can be heard with a collection of her other tracks on her SoundCloud page. One of our favourites. @MillyUptonMusic, @DistillersW6

Saturday 6 December

Swingrowers, Village Underground, Shoreditch

If you're a fan of electro swing, this gig will be heaven for you. These guys are one of three bands playing that night and are coming all the way from Italy just for your enjoyment. This event will sell out fast — book now. @Swingrowers, @villunderlondon

The Fabulous Lounge Swingers, The 100 Club, Oxford Street

https://soundcloud.com/thefabulousloungeswingers/toxic

How do you mix Britney Spears's Toxic into Minnie the Moocher? I would have said don't bother trying but these guys did — and it sounds epic! See them live tonight. @TheFabLSwingers, @100clubLondon
