(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 good week for live music in the capital. I'm really looking forward to finally seeing Grizzly Bear and supports Hermana and Magic Arm tomorrow night at Koko's - actually to be honest it's not just the show I'm looking forward to, whenever I go to Koko's I also like to indulge myself in one of life's other little delights, a cheap but tasty vegetable curry at a little eatery round the corner. On the subject of food, maybe I should write a regular feature about good places to eat near concert venues, mixing my two favourite subjects could be a lot of fun.
