The Besnard Lakes – 22/11/11 – Scala – £14

Alabama 3 – 02/12/11 – Kentish Town Forum – £20
Self described as “Sweet pretty country acid house gospel music” – their gigs in the mid-00’s are some of the best I’ve ever been to

Malcolm Middleton – 07/12/11 – The Shacklewell Arms – £14.50
Scottish miserablism from former Arab Strap man. In my opinion Britain’s current best songwriter (probably).
