London gigs diary: 21 January – 27 January

Los Angeles’ Milo Greene play their debut London shows this week at St Pancras Old Church.

2013’s now officially up and running in terms of London gigs – this week sees a slew of great shows it’ll be well worth braving the biting temperatures for. LA’s Milo Greene are in the UK for the first time ever, and the buzz around them has been so much they’ve had to add a second date at St Pancras Old Church (they’ll headline there on both Wednesday and Thursday). Thursday night is sure to have many of us scratching heads and throwing dice; highlights there include the exceptional Daughter playing at Hackney Empire, Paul Banks showcasing his solo material at Koko and Cavan, Ireland’s teenage rock ‘n’ roll prodigies The Strypes headlining a free show at Old Blue Last. Elsewhere, The BlackWhite’s promising demos should entice a crowd down to their gig at Notting Hill Arts Club on Tuesday, and the annual XFM X-Posure All-Dayer takes place at Barfly on Saturday featuring a whole host of ones to watch for ’13.
