(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)

It's a great time to be in London (apart from the swine flu worry bit) so get yourself out there and enjoy some live music. If you're short on dough (I'm trying to bring the word 'dough' back), try one of the many free instore gigs at Pure Groove or Rough Trade East - here are the links to their websites:

Pure Groove
Rough Trade

I often enjoy just walking around London (preferably with an ice cream) and taking in some street music which in the Summertime seems to be just around every street corner.

Whatever you do, hope you have a great week
