Silent Disco at The View from The Shard

The View from The Shard is the visitor attraction at the top of Western Europe's tallest building, The Shard. With unparalleled, panoramic views, it offers visitors a unique perspective on the capital.

Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk

  • Free

To mark Blondie's 40th anniversary, Somerset House present this mega show of previously unpublished photographs by Chris Stein, co-founder of the band. As well as featuring images of the chart-topping group in their early days and backstage on tour, Stein has selected other favourites from his archive including sultry snaps of David Bowie, The Ramones, Andy Warhol and other big names from the glittering, new wave world.

The Kings of R&B: Joe + Jagged Edge + Ginuwine

  • Critics choice

This ’90s R&B revue features three male vocal acts from the golden era of the slow jam. Joe, known for tunes including 'I Wanna Know', has just released a back-to-basics new album intended to 'inspire today's generation to become R&B artists' – which is big of him. Jagged Edge, fronted by the Casey twins, are joined as support acts by lascivious 'Pony' star Ginuwine (real name, incredibly, Elgin Baylor Lumpkin).

Alt-J

  • Critics choice

The symbol-named, Mercury-winning trio from Leeds ply their reverb-smothered, off-kilter indie that echoes Yeasayer and Jeff Buckley. Some find it utterly enchanting, others favour the term 'snoozefest', but whichever side of that fence you're on it's hard to deny they're a pretty big deal nowadays – as proved by these huge gigs, at which they'll perform songs from their new album 'This Is All Yours'.

Jessie J

  • Critics choice

Motormouth, songwriter, ex-talent show judge and vocal acrobat Jessica Cornish arrives in London with a bang to perform her high-energy dance-pop and soulful, electronic R&B. Whatever you might think of her occasional habit of bludgeoning songs to death with her vocal cords, she is undeniably a top performer with a huge pair of lungs and the confidence to match.

Tove Lo

  • Critics choice

Rising Swedish pop star Tove Lo (pronounced 'too-veh loo') stepped into the spotlight last year with her unflinching break-up anthem 'Habits'. 'You’re gone and I gotta stay high all the time, to keep you off my mind,' it goes, which ought to give a vague idea as to which 'habits' she’s referring to. As if to placate parents, the follow-up single is called 'Not on Drugs.' Both are rather fabulous slices of pop.

Hozier

  • Critics choice

Young and brooding Dublin singer Andrew Hozier-Byrne – who's rapidly rising and starting to sell out venues astonishingly quickly – juggles folk, soul and blues.

Jessie Ware

  • Critics choice

A silky-voiced London singer who's tapped straight into the UK bass scene, Ware has collaborated with some of the smartest cats out there including Sampha, Joker, SBTRKT and Julio Bashmore. Her smooth R&B debut, 'Devotion', was one of Time Out's top ten albums of 2012, and the follow-up 'Tough Love' is sounding pretty special too. If you didn't get tickets to her intimate church launch shows for the new album, then make sure to catch the singer at this big gig on her home turf in

Slipknot + Korn

  • Critics choice

Iowa's masked marauders Slipknot headline a nu-metal double-bill that'll be packed to the rafters with headbanging teens and ’90s/’00s nostalgics alike. They're supported by Korn, as angsty and dirty-minded as ever they were in the glory days of 'Freak on a Leash'. Dig out that crusty old hoodie and join the mayhem – it'll be quite a show.

Paolo Nutini

Full-lipped, gravel-voiced, baby-faced Scots crooner Nutini has raced up the charts and devastated hearts once more with his more mature third album 'Caustic Love' (working title  'Numpty', apparently.)

Die Antwoord

  • Critics choice

The South African hip hop trio, whose name translates from Afrikaans as The Answer, combine a mixture of trashy electro beats with some gloriously bizarre lyrics. Despite dressing as raving '90s hillbillies, they're a serious troupe who attracted the help of Diplo for their single 'Evil Boy', opened for M.I.A. and tour relentlessly.

Fortuna Pop's Winter Sprinter

  • Critics choice

Long-running London indie label Fortuna Pop presents four days of indie fun, with slight leaning towards spiky twee but a fine range of artists involved. Sctottish alt folkie Withered Hand headlines on Tuesday, with former Hefner man Darren Hayman and his band The Long Parliament singing smart, conceptual piano-pop to top the bill on Wednesday. Hailing from the weirdly named town of Pity Me near Durham, Thursday headliners Martha make sweet grunge-pop. Tigercats round things off

Fat White Family

  • Critics choice

Anyone remember The Metros, Peckham's straggly, sub-Libertine punk 'n' roll group? Well, through a strange alchemical process – via stints as The Saudis and Meat Divine, and gaining and losing members along the way – they've turned into one of London's most exciting young bands. Tonight Fat White Family perform from their totally screwed up debut album 'Champagne Holocaust' and drag their weird and wonderful dark psychedelia, which takes in Butthole Surfers and The Birthday

Queen/Adam Lambert

  • Critics choice

Yep, that Queen: the classic rock act with the iconic, irreplaceable, long-dead frontman. Freddie Mercury's continued absence from this world hasn't stopped Brian May and Roger Taylor from reuniting Wayne Campbell's favourite car karaoke band. Paul Rodgers has played the part of Mercury in the past; and now, for the second major tour, 'American Idol' runner-up Adam Lambert steps in to belt out 'Don't Stop Me Now'. Eccentric outfits and outlandish shenanigans accompany the

Orlando Julius/The Heliocentrics

  • Critics choice

Hi-life saxophonist Julius is as close to a living legend of Nigerian music as it's possible to get. Busting out groovy explorations from his new album 'Jaiyede Afro', he's backed here by brilliant, expansive, Sun Ra-influenced jazz collective The Heliocentrics: an unbeatable combination.
