Here's another unmissable production at the Arcola Theatre - Chekhov's The Seagull
. A new translation directed by Joseph Blatchley, coupled with an incredibly strong cast (including Geraldine James) brings warmth to a tale of tormented characters and complex relationships. Until 16th July, tickets £17.7.30pm, Arcola Theatre, Dalston E8
Two days ago was the official start of the summer, well at least officially. I'm not quite convinced yet, but the lovely people from Passing Clouds
are helping out with their hot Brazilian night. Go here if you fancy an evening of hip-swaying salsa, bossa nova and samba and listen to the tunes of
Pe-de-Jurema and Criolina Sound System
. £57pm, Passing Clouds, Hackney E8
Here's an idea: ask your boss if you can have this afternoon off and tell him you're going to represent your company at a fundraising event. I'm sure he won't be able to say no. Then head to the Macbeth for Tropical Voodoo, a Japan Tsunami all-dayer
with live bands, visuals, snacks and booze. Just try to hide your hangover the next day! £52pm-2am, Macbeth, Hoxton St, N1
Whilst some folk pack their tents for a sodden wet weekend at Glastonbury, other folk are gearing up for more summer climes at a super-hot tropical rave party at Rich Mix
championing the best of new global music, from Latin America to the Caribbean through bass, booty music and funk, with a live set from Bacalao Men
and DJ set from Russ Jones. I know where I’d rather be! £5 adv / £7 door7pm, Rich Mix Bar, Bethnal Green Rd , E1
|One Tweet Pete|
If the internet has officially become the Land of the Oversharer, what would someone say if they could only tell the virtual world one thing? There are feeds and then there are bites and One Tweet Pete
has certainly served up his share. We could go on and on about Pete and what his social media outfit says about the state of our world, social commentary, irony and all that, but that would only be giving more credence to his experiment.
I'm not too sure whether I like the idea of a hungover cookbook - isn't it much easier to cure a hangover at the local café? On the other hand, if you can manage to force your flatmate/girlfriend to cook breakfast for you, this book might actually be a great idea. Well, check it out yourself: The Hungover Cookbook.
