Pop gigs of the week: Other Voices, Wilton's Music Hall, London E1
Friday 29 March 2013
Small and beautiful is the idea behind this Irish festival, and it hasn't been lost in its move to London.
You'll need luck to get in: tickets are free, but must be won via the Facebook page. But it's worth a try if you want to see two fine Lauras, Mvula and Marling, plus Stornoway for nowt on Friday, or Imelda May, young singer SOAk and soul wonder Matthew E White on 7 April.
Pick of the gigs is on 6 April, where the line-up boasts Dexys, Villagers and the great John Grant, a man whose lacerating confessionals could have been made for the up-close spirit of the thing. For the ticket-less, four live streaming venues offer solace.
