Pilot, Gallery 40, Saturday 4 – Wednesday 15

By | Category: Events Previews

images 75For his new exhibition, abstract artist Alexander Johnson drew inspiration from patterns in the photographs his father took whilst flying a Spitfire during World War II. These reemployed scrapbook images from his childhood of North African and Iberian vistas belie the violence and turmoil of the time with their seemingly simplistic, neon strokes. An inescapably [...]



Sleaford Mods, The Haunt, October 25

By | Category: Events Previews

sleaford mods_75In stark contrast to the glamour and escapism of the super-slick pop world and its manufactured icons, this onomatopoeically titled duo serve up a bitter slice of reality, reacting to the various traps that beset the working class “and under”. Mixing depressing observations of society with hilarious candour, cynicism and profanity, you certainly get your [...]

Jason Byrne: You Name the Show, Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, October 19

By | Category: Events Previews

jason byrne_75The hyperactive funnyman has decided not to name his show this year, since his preparatory writing style is so scattershot, early titles become obsolete as the content evolves. Instead, he’s giving audience members a shot at a £500 prize and the chance to retrospectively title the tour. Each show will feature an on-stage leader board [...]



Morgan and West, Dome Studio Theatre, October 19

By | Category: Events Previews

morgan and west_75Self-declared “spiffing chaps”, these time-travelling Victorian musicians both amuse and amaze as their effortless repartee punctuates quietly amazing illusions and deft trickery. Their latest show sees them cross continents, infiltrate secret societies and outwit nefarious sorts as they quest to retrieve the lost secrets to their tricks. Equal parts theatrical comedy, adventure narrative and head-scratching [...]

Bipolar Sunshine, The Haunt, October 14

By | Category: Events Previews

bipolar sunshine_75Adio Marchant, former vocalist with Manchester 6-piece Kid British has so far released three well-regarded E.P.s as Bipolar Sunshine and his debut album is near completion. Confusingly contradictory, his emotionally charged musings skirt around upbeat electronic accompaniment with rather bleaker lyrical content but the results are always interesting. His pseudonym certainly complements his music. 7pm, [...]
