Head over to Islington Assembly Hall this Tuesday to catch Japanese Breakfast, the solo project of Michelle Zauner of Little Big League, in action.

When: Wednesday 16th

As an accompaniment to the exhibition Adapt to Survive: Notes from the Future, the Hayward Gallery is running a talks programme called Conversations from the Futures. This week, the gallery welcomes Marguerite Humeau, a London-based French artist whose work seeks to unpack the relationship between fact and fiction, history and collective imagination, and myth and science. Che calls herself ‘Indiana Jones in Google Times’ and her research-based practice calls on the expertise of scientists, archaeologists and anthropologists to reimagine organic forms with biological and mechanical engineering.

What: Octavian

Where: Bussey Building

When: Wednesday 17th

We’ve recently got really into Octavian (and not just ‘cos Drake’s apparently become a massive fan). His latest banger ‘Hands’ has been on repeat in Tung HQ even since its release late in March, and will absolutely go off live. His sound’s difficult one to pin down - swirling mix of R&B, dancehall, UK hip-hop, you name it. We’re hyped to see what else he’s got up his sleeve come the 17th.
