Arts and Entertainment Prince is sueing fans who post links to recordings of his live performances online

The singer is targeting 22 individuals for 'massive infringement' of his work

Miguel, Shepherd's Bush Empire, London

If the new wave of US r’n’b really is all about existential angst and conflicting emotions, no one has told Miguel Pimentel, an exponent perfectly happy to rip off his vest to show off an admirably toned physique to please an excitable audience.

‘There’s a fair chance that this line-up would be a train wreck’

Cinderella, St James Theatre, London

This bewitching take on Cinderella – first seen last year at the Tobacco Factory in Bristol – bounces off the Brothers Grimm adaptation of the story rather than the Disney-influencing  Perrault version.

Prince, by Matt Throne

The eternal curse of rock histories is their earnestness. Every incident is weighted with wearying significance, because if the author doesn't take his subject seriously, who will?

Album: Lianne La Havas, Is Your Love Big Enough? (Warner)

Never believe anything anyone tells you in January. The month of second-guessing and self-fulfilling prophecies, it's the period when the music industry and media send out suspiciously samey lists of Bright New Hopes for the year ahead, almost always as cautious as they are tedious. But just occasionally, like a broken clock, they get it right.

Tragi-comic pop artist Liz Green is, according to family lore, descended from a Liverpool line that includes executioners and rag-and-bone men. She's also a highlight of this year's Latitude festival.

My Fantasy Band: Lisa Hannigan

Jane's Addiction, Koko, London

Jane's Addiction are both a product and a victim of their time. Formed in the same city (Los Angeles) in the same year (1985) as Guns N' Roses, they ascended to their pinnacle in 1990, even then overshadowed by the heavy metal titans next door, only to then split up for the first of what would be two times in 1991. Their history is fractured and staccato, one of acrimony and reformation, but the warm embrace afforded the band by tonight's crowd at Koko speaks volumes about the impact that their first two albums had on a generation of young rockers.

Album: Vintage Trouble, The Bomb Shelter Sessions (VintageTrouble)

Vintage Trouble's music harks back to the erotically-charged blues-rock of the 1970s, but with a funky edge that recalls The Black Crowes.

My Fantasy Band: Jill Scott

Album: N.E.R.D, Nothing (Polydor / Star Trak)

If you thought Pharrell had jumped the shark, Nothing will come as something of a shock.
