London gigs diary: 30 July – 5 August


LFC Records’ Jake Mattison performs three sets in London this week.

As the Olympics kick in, there’s very little going on in the way of gigs across London this week. However, there’s of course a few things worth missing the women’s badminton and synchronised swimming for: Sissy & The Blisters showcase their raucous rock at The Social on Tuesday, and the buzzy Luke Sital Singh brings his Neil Young meets Bon Iver compositions to The Old Blue Last on Thursday. Dalston’s Birthdays venue is hosting headline shows from both Fixers and Chapel Club, and there’s a bunch of notable artists playing free shows in Hyde and Victoria Park as part of the BT London Live event in association with the Games. For absolutely nothing, we’re able to see the fast-rising likes of King Charles, Lucy Rose, Jake Mattison and Hudson Taylor. Check out the details below for exact times and places.
