Ben Howard

Bombay Bicycle Club

  • Critics choice

My, haven’t these four young men come a long way? It seems only yesterday that they were fresh-faced 16-year-olds bashing out melodic, winsome indie at Nambucca. Now they’re following an adventurous Number One record, ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’, with their biggest home town show ever at Earls Court (capacity: a cool 20,000). It’s a big step up, but by the sounds of the new album they’re more than ready. First Foals, then Metronomy at Ally Pally, now this? Look out

Kasabian

  • Critics choice

Leicester's enormously popular, Glastonbury-headlining, swaggering good-time rockers show everyone what they're made of. Essentially that's baggy revivalism with a fixation on the Mondays, Primal Scream and Oasis, but with more epic, experimental, psych-rock flavourings and (just occasionally) some interesting electronic excursions. Massive chant-along choruses, sweaty jumping about and spilt beer should be the order of the day throughout this massive run of Brixton gigs – and,

John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme'

  • Critics choice

A troupe of contemporary jazz and world music heavyweights 're-envision' Trane's transcendental masterpiece, commemorating 50 years to the day since the sax saint's original was recorded in a single session.

Lenny Kravitz

You know what they say about Lenny Kravitz's career: it ain't over ’til it's over. To the haters, he's a ’90s relic, a mega-sized tub of pastiched cobblers in shockingly bad clobber. But there are also plenty of people who look on ol' Len as the living embodiment of freaked-out and loved-up sex 'n' roll, hence this huge Wembley date more than two decades on from 'Are You Gonna Go My Way?'.

Michael Bublé

What’s in a name? Received wisdom says ‘not much’, but when it comes to the smoother groover from Vancouver, it’s the secret of his huge success. ‘It’s pronounced “boo-blay”’ was the slogan used when his eponymous breakthrough album launched in 2003. Nothing has burst the Bublé bubble since. The singer’s consistent formula of big-band crooning and radio-friendly soft pop has generated huge sales, and, along with that playful name, has seen him become a

Christmas in Trafalgar Square

  • Free

A huge Christmas tree will herald the arrival of the festive season (someone ought to tell the supermarkets they started early) when it is lit by the Mayor of Oslo, the Mayor of Westminster and the Norwegian Ambassador at 6pm on December 4 in London's living room, Trafalgar Square. Carols from the Salvation Army and St Martin-in-the-Fields choir will add to the atmosphere. On December 7 a torch-lit procession will surround the choir and clergy of St Martin-in-the-Fields church

Gogol Bordello

  • Critics choice

Described as 'Joe Strummer with a gypsy twist', Gogol Bordello's Ukrainian-born frontman Eugene Hutz leads his misfit collection of New York-based refugees out on stage in London. Though they've been around for years, their brand of Balkan punk rock – complete with fiddles, saxophones, accordions and whatever they can lay their hands on for percussion – is still unmissable.

Julian Casablancas and The Voidz

  • Critics choice

The Strokes' frontman brings his new band to the UK to play a date in support of upcoming album 'Tyranny', scheduled for release in mid-October. While Casablancas' new outfit still thrash out tunes with the punky energy of The Strokes, The Voidz music has an experimental edge to it, taking in anything from melodic lo-fi to mild electronic dabblings. Intriguing stuff.
