Dingwalls, NW1, Tues
Garage rock with aspirations for explorations far beyond the garage. Texan trio do good impersonation of total chaos, and play great single Let's Talk About It.
KOKO, NW1, Wed
The Duluth, Minnesota-resident Mormon trio play their enduringly magical brand of rock. Quiet is the new loud as the band play, albeit a little early, a Christmas concert.
The Macbeth, N1, Thurs
New York resident Mike Strallow brings material that's a cross between Radiohead and the Strokes. Emotional, but in a good way, you know.
