AN ART AND MUSIC AND PIZZA AND BEER THING
A DISAPPEARING EXHIBITION + GUESS?!
We’re so excited to be teaming up with This Must Be For You again. Promoting a heartening message of accessible art and human generosity, the event sees a variety of artists creating one-off sleeves for bands on Transgressive’s sweet-as roster, and on the final night of the exhibition you get to take the art (and the vinyl) home, for free! It gets better though. On the first night we’re putting on the second instalment of Guess. The deal there? Secret killer line-up, cheap drinks, a free screen-printed tote and (oh my) free Yard Sale pizza. The last one was seriously so good and so fun. A Guess ticket will also get you into the first night private view of the art show. What a night that’s going to be. So come see art, eat pizza, drink beer and watch incredible music with us.
A VERY MELTY CHEESE THING
FONDUE THURSDAYS AT THE CHEESE BAR
Our favourite toasted sandwich is made by The Cheese Truck, one of our favourite magazine distribution stop-offs is Archie’s Bar in Deptford. We really, really like melted cheese. Hallelujah hands everywhere then for the other member of this champion fromage gang, The Cheese Bar in Camden. Their normal menu is mouth-watering enough, but on Thursdays through November and December they’re going full winter comfort with Fondue Thursdays. Great starters (mozzarella sticks!), proper fondue and, hold us, one of the sides for dipping is pigs in blankets. Pigs. In. Blankets.
AN ARCHIVE CELEBRATION THING
SEASON OF SOUND: 140 YEARS OF RECORDED SOUND
The phonograph was invented in 1877 and recorded sound has shaped our existence ever since. This free exhibition in the British Library’s Entrance Hall Gallery explores all that and more as part of their Season Of Sound, an extensive series of events focused around their extraordinary archive. That also includes a Late at the Library series, with performances from the Radiophonic Workshop plus big nights with DJs using the most acclaimed sound systems around.
A FILM THING
PLAY YOUR GENDER (+Q&A)
The disparity between the amount of male and female music producers is beyond staggering. Like 95% vs 5% staggering. As part of the Doc’n Roll Film Festival, Play Your Gender sees Juno award-winning producer Kinnie Starr exploring why this astonishing situation exists by speaking to members of Tegan & Sara, Smashing Pumpkins, Hole and many more about their experiences in the recording industry, and the pressures of being a women within it.
AN IMMERSIVE PUNK THEATRE THING
INSIDE PUSSY RIOT
Honestly, as soon as the word ‘immersive’ rears its head we’re normally scarpering in the opposite direction – but this sounds a bit different. Part of the Saatchi Gallery’s Art Riot: Post-Soviet Actionism exhibition, Inside Pussy Riot gives you the chance to sink yourself into the Russian band’s 2012 experience of standing up to the Orthodox Church’s support of Putin. You’ll be in the dock, but will you speak up for freedom of speech and face incarceration for your beliefs? Here’s a chance to evaluate how much you value freedom.
