By Time Out London Music

Another week, another crop of ace London gigs. Out of everything that isn’t sold out, here’s our top ten – just click on the red headers to read more.

10. Joseph Arthur

Melodic and effortlessly familiar acoustic sounds that explicitly explore tricksy family dynamics. Oslo. Hackney Central Overground. Tue Nov 8.

9. Baroque Trio Sonatas

The Historical Performance Department are let loose on various period instruments. Royal Academy of Music. Baker St. Tue Nov 8.

8. Lyra

Definitely one for Florence fans. Thundering drums tangle with ragged angelic vocals and emotive, lovelorn lyrics. The Old Blue Last. Old St. Thu Nov 10.

7. Irah

Drift into the floaty world of this Copenhagen trio where blissed-out melodies reign supreme. The Waiting Room. Stoke Newington Overground. Thu Nov 10.

Danny Brown

6. Danny Brown

Rapper whose hyperactive, eccentric delivery and eerie, leftfield beats have finally been getting deserved credit. Electric Brixton. Brixton. Thu Nov 10.

5. Sleaford Mods

Fresh punk poetry scrawled over relentless electronic beats as the Nottingham duo debut new tracks. Roundhouse. Chalk Farm. Thu Nov 10.

4. Ren Harvieu

The pomp-pop vibrato teams up with Romeo Stodart (him from noughties band Magic Numbers) to premiere new tracks. O2 Academy Islington. Angel. Thu Nov 10.

Ren Harvieu

3. EFG London Jazz Festival: Classical Meets Jazz

Tuba master Andy Grappy connects with young musicians. Southbank Centre. Waterloo. Sun Nov 13.

2. Peaches

Exuberant and hyper-sexual performance artist ready to strut and slay audiences with her brand of amped-up electro. Oval Space. Bethnal Green. Wed Nov 9.

1. Margaret Glaspy

Don’t miss Californian ray of sunshine Glaspy, as she beams over to London with her cream-coloured Telecaster, folky guitar licks and fun lyrics that save her from being just quirky and instead just quality. Village Underground. Shoreditch High St Overground. Wed Nov 9.
