ROUNDHOUSE RISING FESTIVAL
In case you didn’t already know, Roundhouse are one of the more brilliant supporters of new music and young musicians out there. From offering incredibly cheap rehearsal spaces for under 25s to their endless supply of workshops and new music festivals, they do something unbelievably beneficial and rare in the music industry by trying to bring music to people of all backgrounds regardless of income. Part of this dedication to new music is their annual Roundhouse Rising festival, with performances from a range of our favourite new artists including Black Honey, Afrikan Boy and Hannah Lou Clark (pictured) and free panels, workshops and tutorials. Now in its sixth year, it’s a firmly established and rapidly growing new music event that won’t fail to impress.
March 17th-20th, The Roundhouse, Camden, Tickets: FREE to £8
BONOBO PRESENTS OUTLIER
A new event series curated by Bonobo, Outlier has blown us away with its incredible line-up already and I’m sure there’s more surprises still to come. Taking place across the labyrinth of rooms at London’s favourite new venue Tobacco Dock, the party goes on all day and the carefully curated list of special guests will be there to make sure there’s never a dull moment, or a reason not to dance. With a mix of live acts (including one of our favourites, Kiasmos) DJs and producers (Rone, Maya Jane Coles, Lapalux, Lone, Gilles Peterson), the line-up is an exciting mix of established and new artists. As he works on his fifth album for Ninja Tune, Bonobo won’t let us forget just how brilliant he is with this huge display of his talents as a curator and genre leader, supporting and promoting the best sounds in club culture both new and old. A day to leave you inspired and excited for the future of new music.
If you’re not familiar with Lit Live, then it’s a collaboration between Goldsmiths Writers’ Centre and Literary Kitchen, showcasing Goldsmiths and guests’ fantastic writing and poetry. This month they’re taking over one of the best new venues and inclusive spaces in town, DIY Space for London. We’re especially excited for this one as one of our long-time favourite artists Alanna McArdle (Ides, Joanna Gruesome among many others) will be taking part with a reading. A night of something a little bit different.
D.I.Y. ART MARKET – PECKHAM
This event is a real treasure trove, and an opportunity to pick up unique items you won’t find elsewhere, and certainly not all in one place. You can expect to find art prints, ceramics, zines and independent publications, illustration, photography, comics, custom tees, homemade cassettes, screen prints, records and artist books. So, basically, everything we like. This is a real celebration of creativity and London’s independent scene, supporting both the more established artists and publishers, as well as up-and-coming stars.
HARMONY KORINE: FAZORS
With writer/director credits for Gummo, Spring Breakers and more, plus collaborations with Larry Clark on the likes of Kids, we don’t need to tell you that Harmony Korine is blessed with a unique and divisive vision that always get people talking. That this extends to this exhibition of his paintings is no surprise. With the title referring to oscillating musical sounds, this is a vibrant and sensory experience where the paintings pulse with an hypnotic energy. These are works of art to get lost in, like Mowgli looking into Kaa’s eyes.
