London: Paul Weller | Peter Walker | Animal Collective | Lily Allen | Tunng With Tinariwen

Paul Weller
O2 Arena, SE10, Sat 21 Mar
The Woking class hero leads the faithful in worship at this big shed gig. Expect material from his latest, more eclectic, album 22 Dreams, plus stuff from his back catalogue, too.

Peter Walker
Cecil Sharp House, NW1, Sun 22 Mar
The celebrated, influential 1960s folk raga guitarist and musical director of the Acid Tests showcases the results of his studies in flamenco guitar. Cool stuff.

Animal Collective
HMV Forum, NW5, Tue 24 Mar
Panda Bear and the rest of the Technicolor band bring freedom chants and tales of ecstatic domesticity from their new album, Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Lily Allen
O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, W12, Thur 26, Fri 27
The pop songstress offers paparazzi laments and other wry moments from her It's Not Me It's You album. Wonky-haired hipster La Roux is in support.

Tunng With Tinariwen
KOKO, NW1, Thur 26 Mar
It turns out that opposites do attract: folky London band mysteriously collaborate with African desert blues dissidents. Fusion, happily, occurs.
