To quote one of their cover versions, don't you worry 'bout a thing if you're aiming to see Incognito this month - their London show next week and Manchester on 22nd January still have tickets available. Both later London shows on 25th/26th have, however, sold out.

Before the band joins Django Django, Miles Kane and Peace on the NME Awards Tour 2013 in February, Palma Violets have the small matter of two intimate gigs next week. Tunbridge Wells on Wednesday is available for £10, but Tufnell Park has sold out.

Still going strong after over 40 years in the business of making folk-influenced rock, Caravan's devotees will be keen to snap up tickets for this UK tour which starts in London on Tuesday. This show is sold out but all others are available from us from £20 to £25.
