Culture Calendar #33: Picks For The Week
Wanna know what's on in London this week?
Look no further...
w/c 28th August
What: Vince Staples
Where: O2 Forum Kentish Town
When: Wednesday 30th
After the critical success of his second album Big Fish Theory Vince Staples has been on a whirlwind tour. Make sure you catch him before he heads back to the US! We had to pick one of the album’s lead singles ‘Rain Come Down’ as one of our Best Singles in July round-up thanks to the big-room house bass-line and infectious lyrics. Click here for the full article and keep your eyes peeled for the August round up. Find out more.
What: Suzan Frecon: watercolors and small oil paintings
Where: David Zwirner
When: Thursday 31st (Private View 6-8pm)
David Zwirner has come back from the summer holiday with a new exhibition of recent works by the artist Susan Frecon. Born in Mexico, Frecon’s works are known for their complex yet restricted compositions. Frecon has a rich history with the gallery, having exhibited at the New York space a number of times. This will be her inaugural show at the London location with a concurrent show of larger works on display at 525 West 19th Street. The exhibition runs until the 23rd September. Find out more.
What: Field Maneuvers 2017
Where: Secret London Location revealed to ticket holders
When: Friday 1st – Monday 4th
Intimate, boutique festivals are all the rage right now (see our interview with new Lincolnshire festival The Tower). Everyone seems to be craving small, high quality parties and the founders of Field Maneuvers are no different. Capacity is limited to under a 1000, there will no doubt be a smattering of fancy food trucks and eateries, and the line-up includes Midland, Ryan Elliot, Shanti Celeste. If you missed Houghton, this is the one for you. Find out more.
What: XOYO Loves: Detroit Swindle (live)
When: Saturday 2nd
It’s rare for a week to go by without us picking a Detroit Swindle record for our #morningmusic series on Instagram - we love their bouncy house beats. With only a few tracks having been released recently we're hoping there's lots in the pipe line, and where better to hear explosive new music than XOYO. If the recent ‘Tamarindus hollandicus’ premiered on THUMP is anything to go by, the live set will be something special. Support comes in the form of San Proper and Max Graef. Find out more.
What: Helena Hauff
When: Sunday 3rd
Helena Hauff's sets were at the forefront of our reviews of Dekmantel and Sunfall. Her meticulous blend of minimal and big room tech-house and techno has earned her critical success pretty much everywhere. Her BBC Essential Mix was revered and shared by both fans and big name DJs alike. Needless to say, it remains a big Tung favourite. Hydra and Ministry of Sound might both trying desperately to replicate the success of Phonox’s Sunday session formula but there's still only one place to be on the last day of the weekend.
