To mark Blondie's 40th anniversary, Somerset House present this mega show of previously unpublished photographs by Chris Stein, co-founder of the band.

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'.

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.

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.

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

Nils Lofgren

  • Critics choice

Trad blues-rock from this American virtuoso guitarist, who's been a sideman for both Springsteen and Neil Young as well as conducting an extensive solo career.

First Aid Kit

  • Critics choice

Recently tipped by none other than David Cameron, the Söderberg sisters return to London to ply their charming, lushly harmonised, narrative alt folk and country, with a set that'll likely lean on their new album 'Stay Gold'. Keep an eye out in the audience for Dave and Sam.

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

Alice Russell

  • Critics choice

This fine-voiced, intense UK soulstress fronts the Quantic Soul Orchestra and Bah Samba, and is in general puzzlingly undersung. Tonight she plays from her most recent album 'To Dust'.

Neneh Cherry

  • Critics choice

Late-’80s superstar Neneh Cherry is back in the game, creatively revitalised by a recent collaboration with Scandinavian avant-jazz band The Thing. Tonight she's singing songs from her first solo album this millennium, a collaboration with the brilliant electronic duo Rocketnumbernine (and produced by Four Tet). It's called 'Blank Project', and it sounds fantastic – don't miss its distorted but funky synth workouts live.

J Mascis

  • Critics choice

The grandaddy of grunge (with respect to Neil Young) takes to the stage solo again to remind us of just how many strings he has to his slacker-rock bow. Songs from Mascis's new solo album 'Tied to a Star' are a given, but cross your fingers for some Dinosaur Jr favourites too.

Mark Lanegan Band

  • Critics choice

The grizzled grunge wildman makes a welcome return, dropping in with his band to play songs from his new 'Phantom Radio' album. As well as a synthpoppy new wave influence, the fresh material shows off Lanegan's throaty vocals and hard-rocking roots to fine effect, and should make for a kickin' live show.

Gerard Way

The former main man of My Chemical Romance tours his solo debut 'Hesitant Alien', which draws on a whole pool of influences beyond MCR's emotive thrash.

Roy Ayers

The US jazz-funk vibist plays another installment in what's becoming a regular residency: a trio of shows at the Jazz Café. Expect all the much-sampled rare groove classics, like 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine', 'Mystic Voyage', 'Love Will Bring Us Back Together' and 'We Live in Brooklyn'.
