Culture Calendar #38: Picks For The Week

The Tung Magazine Art Music Theatre Culture Review Interview

WHAT: Wolf Alice

WHERE: XOYO 

WHEN: Tuesday 3rd

Following the release of their excellent second album last Friday, Wolf Alice are hitting XOYO. This is a band who rose to fame through the visceral power of their live show, having played hundreds of gigs before My Love Is Cool dropped. Ellie Rowsell in particular has grown as a performer enormously over the last couple of years - I literally cannot wait to see her scream her way through ‘Yuk Foo’. Get down and see it for yourself.

The Tung Magazine Art Music Theatre Review Interview Wolffe

WHAT: WOLFFE 

WHERE: Sebright Arms

WHEN: Wednesday 4th 

London-based dark pop artist Wolffe is hitting the Sebright Arms this Wednesday for a live show supported by Dahlia Sleeps. We’ve been following her rise over the last couple of years, through the release of melancholic pop tracks ‘Shoot You Down’, ‘Fuck With Me’ and ‘I Want You’, and finally the time has come to witness Head over for a show awash with electronic beats bubbling beneath Wolffe’s husky, soulful voice.

WHAT: NT LIVE: Hamlet

WHEN: Thursday 5th 

Theatre at the cinema is so 2017 and we are absolutely here for it. If you couldn’t get tickets to see the great Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, have no fear.

WHAT: Zimmer vs. Williams 

WHERE: Royal Festival Hall 

WHEN: Friday 6th 

Yes, it’s been speculated that we might have reached Zimmer saturation-point, but for every detractor there’ll always be someone who lives for that Inception horn. This Friday the London Concert Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Inglis, are performing his music in conjunction with another inimitable great of film music: John Williams. Expect to hear Williams’ scores from Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, and Star Wars, alongside Zimmers’ compositions for Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight, Inception, and loads more.
