London: The Chap, Chairlift | James Blackshaw | Glasvegas

The Chap, Chairlift
Proud, NW1

James Blackshaw
The Harrison, WC1
Sunday November 30
In The Pines presents a display of hypnotic guitar noodling. "American primitive"-style picking from this young Hastings native, very much proving that less can be more.

Glasvegas
Shepherd's Bush Empire, W12
Monday December 1
Scottish indie fellas bring sunglasses-at-night rock. New Christmas mini-album showcases a surprising interpretation of festive spirit.
