This weeks gig guide features the likes of Withered Hand, Tom Williams & The Boat, Sleep Party People and more. We've also introduced a new calendar system at the bottom to make things easier.

Send your gig listings to and we'll do our best to include them.

Withered Hand: Mono, Glasgow 22/11/12

Withered Hand (Dan Willson) and his full band bring their sounds to Mono. The full band includes a cello and banjo so you know right away that this will be an amazing gig and not one to be missed. Support comes from US songwriter Charles Latham and Edinburgh’s Hailey Beavis.

Tom Williams & The Boat: The Hope, Brighton 22/11/12

They’re still a far cry from the watered-down 'nu-folk' scene but Tom Williams & The Boat’s latest fan-funded album, Teenage Blood, demonstrated the band’s ability to craft jangling pop melodies amongst the gutsy, bar room rockers of their previous record. The Kent-based band's reputation was built upon their simmering live-shows and Thursday's performance at the Hope should be highlighted in every Brighton gig goer's calendar.

Sleep Party People: Scandic Grand Central, Stockholm 27/11/12

The Danish act Sleep Party People, the project of Brian Batz, released its debut LP We Were Drifting On A Sad Song earlier this year, and it's a good one. On Tuesday the 27th they’re finally coming to Scandic Grand Central in Stockholm and it’s free entry.

Free entry, details here. Gig chosen by Johan Alm.

The Vaccines: O2 Apollo, Manchester 21/11/2012

While I still pine for the Jay Jay Pistolet days, front man Justin Young and Co are certainly placing their stamp firmly on the face of British music. While some people may hate their stratospheric rise to fame there is one thing you cannot deny: The Vaccines are a bloody great live band! Their passion and enthusiasm overwhelms an audience and their perfectly crafted indie rock will have you dancing and jumping around in no time. Expect to see a group of London's finest playing for their lives. Support is courtesy of Californian girl rock duo Deap Valley.

Mac Demarco: Birthdays, London 19/09/12

The oddball American singer-songwriter apparently puts on a good show. Head to Birthdays later today to find out if the hype is true.

Purity Ring: Thekla, Bristol 23/11/12

Whatever genre you want to pigeonhole these Canadians into, it's a genre worth hearing more from. Off the back of debut album Shrines they come across the pond for a handful of gigs, with support from the equally as delicious Doldrums, it might very well be one of the best value gigs you'll go to all year. There's always a chance Big Jeff will be there too, dancing at the front, and why wouldn't you want to see him?
