Carl Barât & The Jackals

  • Critics choice

Despite a high-profile Libertines reunion this year, indie hero Carl Barât has launched a new solo project: The Jackals, recruited over the internet and through auditions at a south-east London boozer. Barât and his new crew will crack out their indie/rocky/grungy bluesy twice on New Year's Eve: first at the Amersham Arms, then (presumably after a mad dash across town) at The Macbeth after midnight.

  1. Amersham Arms New Cross Road, SE14 6TY
  2. Wed Dec 31 - Thu Jan 1

The Voyeurs

  • Critics choice

The hotly-tipped London five-piece formerly known as Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs bash out joyously primitive rock ’n’ roll that nods to the glam, psych and proto-punk of the early ’70s. They play songs from their debut album 'Clarietta' and new material from the follow-up 'Rhubarb Rhubarb'.

  1. The Lexington Pentonville Rd, N1 9JB
  2. Tue Dec 30

New York-styled open mic session for cabaret, musical and jazz singers.

  2. Tue Dec 30 - Tue Jan 6

Esben And The Witch

The captivating Brighton trio perform haunting, chilly melodies interspersed with bursts of heavy noise and backed by a pulsating rhythm section. It's a suitable dark and seductive backing for Rachel Davies's impressionistic, stream-of-consciousness lyrics: imagine Swans backing Siouxsie and you're not even halfway there. This one comes highly recommended.

  1. The Lexington Pentonville Rd, N1 9JB
  2. Mon Dec 29
