(In case any concerts have changed dates/ changed venues/ been cancelled or I've made a typo, you'd be wise to check out the venue websites before heading out the door)

Plenty to go and see this week, I'm off to the Sleeping States show at the ICA tonight (which apparently Huw Stephens will be introducing) and maybe if possible I'll slip in a quick visit to Pure Groove to see The Phenomenal Handclap Band free show at 6:30pm. I have an e-ticket to the !!! show tomorrow but unfortunately can't go - if anyone is interested in buying this ticket, please leave a comment or send me an email and I can transfer the e-ticket into your name so you can just print it off and head along etc. It's £15 and I won't charge you the booking fee, it should be a really fun evening, shame I can't go.

One other thing - a fourth plinth has been added to Trafalgar Square in London, you should check this out! Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break, a different person will make the Plinth their own. They can use your time on the plinth as they like. Here's the live webcam link to see what they're getting up to: Webcam link.
