Smith and Stan VanDerBeek. Having already traversed the globe, the show, curated by Mara McCarthy, is coming to an end this weekend, so check it out while you can.

The Bruce Lacey Experience

Bruce Lacey is a formidable British talent whose work spreads itself across many different disciplines, from paintings to theatrical performances and beyond. Some of his often awe-inspiring creations are on display at the Camden Arts Centre this weekend as part of the ‘Experience’ show and it’s well worth a poke around. Lacey has worked with the likes of Spike Milligan and The Beatles over the course of his artistic career, lending even more kudos to his amazing work.

Until 16th September

A band who list their interests as ‘mud-wrestling, ice-skating and eating’, The White Album are three friends from Denmark who specialise in their own brand of folk/indie music. They’ll be feeding us with sounds at 93 Feet East in bustling Brick Lane along with Southern, Imaginaire, Inca Gold and O’children, who’ll be playing a DJ set.

This Saturday, Teengirl Fantasy are set to rock the place with their own distinct mix of house and techno. With new album ‘Tracers’ on the way, expect a selection of new and old material. Co-conspirators will be Becoming Real, Seams and Eaux.
