Culture Calendar #42: Picks For The Week

Wanna know what's on in London this week? Look no further...

w/c 30th October

The Tung Magazine Art Music Theatre Review Interview London Culture What's On

WHAT: Moses Sumney

WHERE: Islington Assembly Hall

WHEN: Tuesday 30th

Moses Sumney’s spare, melancholy new album Aromanticism has pretty much dominated the airwaves at Tung HQ since its release late last month. His choir-boy turned soul singer vocals are something to behold, at once soothing and arresting, which makes sense considering he was featured on Solange’s A Seat At The Table, the vibe of which is in perfect synchronicity with Sumney’s. This is going to be a show you won’t forget in a hurry.

WHAT: Le Gateau Chocolat: Icons

WHERE: Soho Theatre Downstairs

WHEN: Tuesday 30th - Sat 4th

Opera and lycra loving cabaret sensation Le Gateau Chocolat returns to Soho for just 5 nights. Walking the tightrope between his public and private personas, Le Gateau Chocolat explores relationships with our icons from Kate Bush to Bjork, from Madonna to Meatloaf – the people, the moments, the books, the relationships that have come to shape us, or the ideal we aspire to.

WHAT: Dr Sally Gray on David McDiarmid

WHERE: Studio Voltaire

WHEN: Wednesday 1st

Sydney–based writer and curator Dr Sally Gray will discuss the importance and legacy of Australian artist David McDiarmid’s prolific and expansive practice, including his Rainbow Aphorisms series. McDiarmid was an artist, designer and activist, recognised for his prominent and sustained artistic engagement in issues relating to queer identity and history. McDiarmid produced the Rainbow Aphorism series in response to his own, and his community’s, experience of the AIDS crisis, and the multiple forms of devastations it manifests – political, emotional, intellectual and medical.

WHAT: Mount Kimbie

WHERE: Roundhouse

WHEN: Friday 3rd

Following the release of their third album Love What Survives, experimental post-dubstep duo Mount Kimbie are heading to the Roundhouse for their biggest headline show to date. We were big fans of early releases with James Blake and Mica Levi, and the latter will be found providing support on the night, along with Brother Mey and Coby Sei.

WHAT: Perfume Genius

WHERE: Roundhouse

WHEN: Sunday 5th

Ugh, Perfume Genius is so perfect. We’ll be down the front at the Roundhouse this Sunday doing small small cries to the soft and subtle / bold and beautiful music of Mike Hadreas and his band, singing along to every word, including those from his most recent release No Shape (which, perhaps unsurprisingly considering the tone of this blurb, we loved). Excitement levels will be particularly high when it comes to hearing: ‘Queen’, ‘Too Bright’, ‘Mr Peterson’, and ‘Slip Away’.

WHAT: FEET

WHERE: King’s Head Theatre

WHEN: Sunday 5th

FEET is a brand new play written and performed by Emma Brown and Lawrence Smith which asks provocative questions such as 'why is sending a picture of your foot in a bowl full of jelly less socially acceptable than full frontal nudity onstage?' Or why daily casting breakdowns tend to put the primary focus on appearance over ability. Head to the King’s Head Theatre this Sunday to see a play that asks if compromising your artistic integrity and ultimately selling yourself – or your feet – is worth it in order to survive.
