Plenty of people escape from London in August to hit music festivals around the UK. Follow them at your peril: there are plenty of great gigs in London this summer, and you might just catch some of those festival headliners a lot closer to home. Here’s the best live music this month.

This one's a gig like no other: the Canadian electroclash queen is heading to the South Bank for the UK debut of her 'variety-style futuristic stage happening' titled... wait for it... 'There’s Only One Peach with the Hole in the Middle'. She's promising to gather nearly 40 musicians and performers on stage for her own unique 'vision of the past, present and future of queer feminism', which is bound to be super-sex-positive and a little bit off-the-wall.
