London Gigs

London Gigs Diary: 14 – 20 March 2011

Sxsw2011logo Texas has stolen all the bands. As swathes of the best acts in the world head to Austin for the annual showcase of talent at the South By South West music festival, those of us not fortunate enough to be following them have seen our city’s gig world decimated for a few days. 

We have a writer there, hunting down the best of the crop, and he'll be reporting back all for our benefit. Meanwhile, in a quieter London, there is still music to be heard and there are still bands to be seen.





Gigs Of The Week: 14 – 20 March 2011

Loop FestivalThe Forge, London – 16-19 March

The Loop Festival is on this week at The Forge in Camden. Organised by Loop, London’s contemporary jazz collective, this is the third time they’ve put together this event, although this time they’re moving to The Forge, a lovely and flexible little venue just off Camden High Street. It’s a great chance to check out what developments are being made in the jazz world, and includes four album launches – three of them, by Mirror, Mark Hanslip and the Javier Carmona Duo and Splice, all taking place on Saturday.
