East London’s Hang-Up Gallery are exclusively launching the new collection of works by Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels from Hip-Hop’s most notorious band, Run-DMC. The Art of DMC is the icon’s inaugural London exhibition and will host the new and unseen collection of ‘Darryl Makes Comics (DMC)’ Fine Art, a body of signed limited edition prints borne out of his love and deep passion for comics.

Darryl McDaniels is best known as the co-founding member of ‘Run DMC’. One of the major pioneers of hip-hop culture and arguably THE hottest rap act of the 1980s and 1990s, they are still loved today by millions around the world.

Comics and their superhero characters have always played a huge part in DMC’s life. In fact, many of the stories and speeches made by his favourite comic characters are the inspiration for his lyrics later created for Run DMC.

“I was a nervous little nerdy kid,” DMC says. “I didn’t want to get up in front of y’all and rhyme but then what gave me confidence out there on stage was pretending that I was the Hulk on the microphone.”

DMC, the debut title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980’s NYC. Featuring collaborations with some of the hottest talent in comics and illustration today, a cool 80’s vibe and authentic street art, DMC is a superhero for those who need one most. The character dons his tracksuit, Adidas trainers and knuckle dusters to defend the city’s marginalised citizens against super villain and super hero alike.

For those in the know, you will delight in the tributes to DMC’s favourite comics you grew up with. For those that aren’t, you’ll gasp at the impact on the wall, the accessibility of the genre, and the fact that this was all started by a Hip-Hop legend millions grew up with.

Doors: 7pm-8:45pm

Tickets: £13.20 book online

www.villageunderground.co.uk/events/cat-mouse

A theatrical animation experience, involving an animated cat and mouse and a band of dogs. Expect: live music, theatrical devices, crazy cartoons, high octane action, fun and frolics, extreme violence, moments of edification, sadomasochism, the face machine, skeletons, dogs, dancing, and more! 🐱🐭

Featuring the the animations of Paul Bill Barritt (1927) with live music by Officer Pup, courtesy of composer and Edinburgh Fringe winner, Laurence Owen and band plus, we introduce Miss Lesley Ewen as The Law.

The cultural history of anthropomorphised animals is long and deep, as long and deep as the river of imagination itself. We see ourselves reflected back at ourselves within those furry beings. Cat and Mouse is one such development.

Taking its germ from the great peddler of anthropomorphised cat and mouse chaos Mr. George Herriman, it proceeds in a zigzag line through the gamut of human idiocy from art to war, from technology to industry, from civilisation to love all via the shenanigans of various humanimals mostly of the rodent/feline variety with some notably canine overseers holding court over the proceedings.

Sticking within the traditions of artistic purveyance there will be visuals in the form of animations, sets and costume, there will be live music and there will be storytelling. A theatrical animation experience unlike anything seen before, alike to everything seen once upon a time, long ago…
