Roisin Murphy. Mostly famous for being one half of Moloko, Murphy just released her first record in eight years.

Tel. 495-230-1030, Fri. at 8 p.m.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds: Probably the better half of Oasis, Noel is touring with his band High Flying Birds in support of his new album, «Chasing Yesterday, which channels the old Oasis style pretty well.

Sun. at 8 p.m.
