What to do tonight: 30th November 2011


We recently (positively) reviewed Felix Laband at the Brickfields event so his album launch today at the Lister should be fantastic.


He has lost none of his joyous light yet moody edge. Felix seems like he has been around forever and hopefully he'll be around a lot longer.

Secret Dinner by 68 Encounters

It is our nourishment – it gets us started in the mornings, keeps us going, and is the perfect way to end a busy day. It is also a discipline requiring application and balance. – Sophia Lindop

Secret Dinner on the 23rd November at Sophia Lindop's…

Review: The Frown - The National (video)


The Frown's video for their song The National. Is the best video I have seen since... ever.

This video ticks all my boxes. A good song, disturbing imagery, great post production, a visceral touch, a connection with the artist so close you feel like you are being damaged by them. I could/can/will leave out any opinion on the song. This video is an art piece that needs no music it tells its story and punishes you for watching. 

We start out watching a woman who is…

HTK - Primo Emporio

Primo Emporio is aggressive, falling into the category of what we like to call “transgressive” -trasgressivo in Italian—that is, seductive, anti-conformist, and very cool.

Moreover, each garment—whether a shirt, pant, jacket, or tee—is modelled and sculptured to the male body, communicating a strong,…
