To liven up any night out in London, some live music always helps proceedings. Whatever your tastes - jazz, rock, pop - London can provide. Head to the northern boroughs of the city for some of our picks.

Some of the best up-and-coming artists give you the pleasure of hearing them perform - sometimes at the cost of pennies - in a selection of London's pubs. Thanks to the average Londoner's passion for music, a good band get the crowd going for their crescendo with ease, either that or they'll have audiences nodding their heads and tapping their feet. Take Hackney's Vortex Jazz Club as a prime example.
