Pick of the week: Rock and pop

London: Nick Sanderson Tribute Night | Martha Wainwright | Toumani Diabaté | Ipso Facto/SCUM | The Walkmen

Nick Sanderson Tribute Night
The Forum, NW5
Monday
The former Earl Brutus frontman who died this year is commemorated with sets from JAMC, British Sea Power and Black Box Recorder.

Martha Wainwright
Roundhouse, NW1
Tuesday
Magnificently voiced songs from Rufus's sister. New CD I Know You're Married … adds a radio-friendly, Fleetwood Mac sheen to things.

Toumani Diabaté
Barbican Hall, EC2
Wednesday
The kora player — and sometime member of Björk's band — brings "filigrees of sound" from his entrancing Mande Variations album.

Ipso Facto/SCUM
Roundhouse, NW1
Wednesday
A night of monochromatic thrills, as the spiky Valerie Solanas-inspired SCUM support the still-interesting sounds of the "female Horrors".

The Walkmen
ULU, WC1
Tuesday Hamilton Leithauser leads the New York band through their occasionally shambolic, always passionate paces. New album You & Me shows this may still be a good plan.
