London gigs diary: 23 July – 29 July

Torches launch their new single “Sky Blue Ivory” at The Sebright Arms Thursday night.

It’s another relatively quiet week in London for shows, what with us knee deep in festival territory. There’s of course still some decent stuff on – a string of promising US artists seem to all be in town on Wednesday night, including NYC indie rock stalwarts We Are Scientists, who headline The Garage, and Athens, Georgia’s Lera Lynn, who makes her London debut over at Bush Hall. Brooklyn’s Frankie Rose headlines XOYO on Thursday evening with support from Strangers, whilst London band Torches launch their new 7″ single at The Sebright Arms. DIAZ make their live debut at The Nest in Dalston on Saturday night, and Young Lost Club bring their acoustic events to West London on Sunday, when they host a string of acts – including the promising Maybe Myrtle Tyrtle – at The Defectors Weld in Shepherd’s Bush.
