Spotify is streaming its first live gig this week. The popular music-streaming service will beam La Roux and a cast of electro-wibblers direct to your computer on Tuesday, live from London.

The show features the bibbly-bobbly electro of Delphic, dreamstomp from The Naked and Famous and 80s-angled synthpop from the hideously named Pony Pony Run Run.

Elly Jackson, horizontal-haired daughter of June off of The Bill and autotuned warbler from La Roux, will close the night with a DJ set, including a competition-winning new track from fan Ben Daniels. The whole shebang is sponsored by Nissan.

Spotify is currently offering free seven-day trials of the Premium service, which gives you access to the mobile app for iPhone and Android phones. More than 10 million people are using Spotify in Europe, and over a million are now signed up to pay for the service.

The live show is streamed live to your computer from London's Koko, known to older readers as the Camden Palace. Tickets are sold out, but you can catch the action from the comfort of your own home on Spotify from 8pm tomorrow, Tuesday 5 April, and at behindthehit.com. For the true gig experience, chuck beer all over your carpet and enlist your tallest friend to stand directly in front of your computer.
