London gigs diary: 6 August – 12 August


90s throwback kings The Divers headline the upstairs room at Ronnie Scott’s on Tuesday.

As Olympic fever and patriotic euphoria (courtesy of Team GB’s weekend heroics) well and truly kicks in, the gig situation in London town remains quiet. However, be sure to check out The Divers at Ronnie Scott’s on Tuesday night for a nostalgia trip back to the 90s, and you could probably do a lot worse than to head down to see Escapists at The Bedroom Bar on Thursday, when they play a free entry warmup show for their slots at Reading and Leeds at the end of the month. That same night, Music Week’s monthly showcase hits Proud Camden, with Bwani Junction headlining and Jamie Parisio appearing in the acoustic stable. BT London Live in Hyde and Victoria Park remains in full swing – its highlights this week include Wall, I Dream In Colour and everyone’s favourite Aussies The Temper Trap.
