London gigs diary: 17 September – 23 September

Fierce Panda signings Hey Sholay play a free entry show at The Lock Tavern on Tuesday.

Monday night sees a blockbuster bill at the fast rising Society Of The Golden Slippers night at Blacks in Soho: the princess of rock ‘n’ roll, Lisa Marie Presley, tops a bill which also includes new talent such as Luke Sital-Singh and Jade Hopcroft. A huge amount of notable bands play shows on Tuesday evening – amongst these are Hey Sholay, who play a free entry night at The Lock Tavern as part of their current tour, and Matt Corby, who plays his 48th secret garden show around the world. Gold Dust at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on Wednesday evening sees a piping hot lineup on show, including the recently signed Josh Kumra, Kent producer du jour Draper and Swedish/Australian sister duo Saint Lou Lou. On the same evening, The Futureheads showcase their latest a cappella and acoustic album at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The Sebright Arms hosts the mysterious THUMPERS on Thursday night, which should attract a crowd keen to hear more where their promising first demo came from.
