I am traveling to London tomorrow from the US, will be there for 5 days. Would love to find a few laid back pubs w/ live music -- any suggestions? (I am staying near Soho.) Any UK mefites out there care to meet up for a pint?

Those of you putzing around on MeMu know I am heavily into folksongs and folk singing. This Thursday at 7:30 pm I am hosting a song session at Rasputin's in Ottawa (696 Bronson, for those of you who live here). The focus will be strongly towards accapella song, whether in groups or solo, and there will (hopefully) be singing from as many different musical traditions as we can manage. Since I'm new here, I'd love the opportunity to meet some local Mefites; I thought this would be a fantastic excuse for a meetup. No singing is required, I'll only ask that you don't talk when someone is singing, out of respect for the singer. So, are there any Mefites in Ottawa interested in coming down to Rasputin's on Thursday? I'd love to meet you!
Cortex, Artifice_Eternity, and all the MeFi compers are totally awesome. That's right: last night New Yorkers gathered to listen & I was mighty impressed. Good work all of you.
