Production Battle what’s that?

Two producers share the stage at their own station with a CDJ, they play their ‘beats’ one after the other for 3 rounds and the audience decides who’s got the fire and who goes home! Once a producer wins all of their battles, they earn a spot in the Grand Final competing for the chance to work with an A-list recording artist

Wanna see music in the making with a big cash prize up for grabs get down to Cargo tonight.

The UK music scene will never be the same from March 29th 2012, as this spells the launch of THE DEAD BEAT SOCIETY at Cargo (Shoreditch)! For the next 8 months there will be hairs that stand on end, faces smothered with tears and hearts clogged with adrenaline for the chosen contenders and attendees alike!

Want to hear London’s emerging musical artists catch a few of them at Shortlist.

Art It Up supports and develops the skills of young people through art and creativity across the UK. We like to celebrate and raise awareness about what we do via a ground-­‐breaking event called Shortlist. Shortlist is where some of our collaborations take place, we have up ‘n’ coming & established creative people taking to the stage to perform and inspire.

Shortlist is a long-­‐term project run by UK organisation Art It Up. The money raised at the event will be used to fund creative workshops for young children and adults in the UK who might be susceptible to being stereotyped in a negative light as well as those who wish to progress in a creative career path. Shortlist hopes to empower, encourage and guide young people into the creative industry where possible.

Cigarette Burns Cinema presents: A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin @ Prince Charles Cinema / Wednesday 28th March 2012

TIME AND PLACE 

Screening 8.45pm

Prince Charles Cinema,
7 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BY

Tickets £10 / £7.50 members

CIGARETTE BURNS CINEMA

Many know Lucio Fulci’s late 70s and 80s meandering through nonsensical, supernatural, zombie infested, gore filled, eye popping silliness, but before he became the drunken gore master, he was revered for his more sensible celluloid travels. Including one particularly celebrated giallo classic – ‘A Lizard In A Womans Skin’ Fulci still wallows in the dreamscape, but confined by murder mystery demands, is reigned in. Swinging Sixies London serves as the backdrop for Carol’s nightmarish decent into madness as she slowly loses her mind when she finds herself blamed for the brutal murder of the lesbian party animal next door.

Into The Abyss: A Tale Of Death, A Tale Of Life/Q&A with Werner Herzog @ Curzon Soho / Wednesday 28th March 2012

TIME AND PLACE

Screening 9pm

@ Curzon Soho,
99 Shaftsbury Avenue, W1D 5DY

Tickets £12.50 – returns only

Curzon DocDays and Human Rights Watch Film Film Festival join to present Werner Herzog’s latest stunning documentary which focuses on the bleak yet fascinating subject of capital punishment, and follows the moving story of Michael Perry and Jason Burkett, two young men found guilty of three capital murders in Texas. Unravelling the crime and trial from separate viewpoints, including the victim’s families and prison staff, Herzog’s masterful exploration of life on Death Row shows the devastating effects of capital punishment all involved.

An exciting opportunity to watch Herzog’s most recent film, which had its UK premiere at last year’s London Film Festival. What will make it a very special screening will be the post-screening Q&A with Herzog, who is renowned as an incredibly odd and thoughtful filmmaker. Here are some selected scenes from a short documentary ‘Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe’ that illustrates the integrity and strangeness of this unconventional man:

www.trh.co.uk/whatson/one-man-two-guvnors

The team was invited down to the second run of One Man Two Guvnors and we were definitely entertained.
The new cast never dropped the ball in this pacey production and Owain Arthur did a great job taking over from James Corden.
Owain especially shone in his moments of improvisation as he played with the audience and kept it rolling with the variety of hilarious gags.

My colleague was especially bewitched by the slick band that played at the start and through out the show. Ben Mansfield who plays Stanley Stubbers did a fantastic job and kept me in stitches.

The production is based on Goldini’s Italian Classic Comedy and is oozing with slapstick humour.
I would recommend this for all families and if you’re going on a date, this would get you in the good books.

Attitude Is Everything presents Slow Club @ Village Underground / Tuesday 27th March 2012

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 8pm – 12.30am

@ Village Underground
54 Holywell Lane
London EC2A 3PQ

Entry: £6 Adv /
£8 on the door

www.attitudeiseverything.org.uk

Attitude Is Everything present Slow Club. With their swooning but raucous take on doo-wop and frazzled, fragile representation of soul inspired rock, Slow Club’s currency is songwriting which sees romance in the unlikeliest of corners, and applies a lighter, more honed lyrical touch to telling their story. They’re supprted by Spaceships Are Cool who use 8-bit sounds to make music that sounds like your super nintendo made an LP!

Ghostpoet will be adding even more flavour to the night – as he will showcase his DJ skills. Ghostpoet made his mark on 2011 with the excellent debut LP “Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam” on Brownswood records. With his series of off-kilter, loopy electronic ditties blessed with his delightfully rambling musings on modern life, the softly-spoken Obaro Emijiwe has received much earned hype – culminating with his nomination for the Mercury Music Prize.

Live acts:
SLOW CLUB
+ SPACESHIPS ARE COOL
+ WILDEFLOWER

DJ sets:
GHOSTPOET
+ PIGPEN
+ STELLA MORTOS
+ JARED O’MARA

Screening Until Saturday 14th April

Future Cinema reprises its all-singing, all-dancing homage to ‘Bugsy Malone’ at the fabulously art-deco Troxy. You’ll need to dress in your finest prohibition-era garb to enter the world of Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, where dozens of flappers, gangsters, wiseguys and winos pull guests into the action. After you’ve found yourself gossiping with showgirls at the bar, playing roulette with the world’s worst croupier and watching the boxing in Sluggers’ Gym, the film proper begins – but the splurge gun action doesn’t only happen on-screen. There are family-friendly matinee showings on selected dates.

Whether you’re a foodie, a little green fingered, an interiors obsessive, a DIY demi-god or good with gadgets, the Ideal Home show offers a bit of homely inspiration for the domestic improver. Located in the less than homely Earl’s Court, there is room for masses of stalls and lots of variety; taste dishes from sample stalls and the Celebrity Chef Theatre, stroll around the Show Gardens and enjoy live demonstrations from industry experts. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea (it’s certainly not ours) but there are good buys and some interesting labels to discover.
