Awesome live music events you can still get to this week

For once, it's not too late

Hard to keep up with live music, isn’t it? Tickets seem to be released a good decade before a gig, then instantly snaffled by the super-diligent. Plus you don’t have the foresight to wash your T-shirts, let alone make a music-buying schedule. Well, there are some awesome events you can still get to this week. The first is from super-skilled MC Novelist, who’s at XOYO on Thursday. You’ve also got the Abstract Hip-Hop Orchestra paying tribute to production master J Dilla at the Jazz Cafe on Friday. And in the magical, unknowable future (September) Vic Mensa performs at Heaven.
