The Double R Club , Thursday 21 March @ Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 42-44 Pollard Row.

The R Club will offer an evening of mystery and nightmares inspired by the films of David Lynch. A darkly, surreal cocktail of “Damn fine” Cabaret, Comedy & Live Music, where “restless nights and uneasy dreams go with the territory.”

A series of absurd artists will feature in the line-up, including Jon Hicks (He’ll ‘’drag you kicking and screaming into his own unfathomable subconscious mind!’’), Red Sarah (‘’Falls faster and faster into a den of shadow and iniquity, and then bursts into fire… forever and ever’’), and Marnie Scarett (‘’Aberrant creature of unspeakable thirsts sucks at the marrow of our reality, swallows us whole!’’)

“Ever wondered what would happen if David Lynch got his weird and wonderful hands on a cabaret show? Wonder no more,” Ben Walters from Time Out London says and he’s right.

Doors open at 8 pm. Show at 8.30 pm until 1 am.

No entry after midnight.

Tickets £10, book in advance here

Amy Grimehouse presents: Grease 2 screening,  Wednesday 27 March @ The Book Club, 100 Leonard Street, Shoreditch

The plot: An English student at a 1960’s American high school has to prove himself to the leader of a girls’ gang whose members can only date greasers.

‘’Amy Grimehouse is a cinema slash club night that celebrates trashy, camp, cult and transgressive moving image, marrying the film ,TV show, or documentary up with experiential activities, audience participation and generally vile behaviour. This is not a nice quiet film with popcorn.’’

19.30 until 22.30

Tickets: £8



Lounger: group exhibition. Preview: 28 March @ Matthew’s Yard,  1 Matthews Yard, Croydon

Lounger brings together the work of three emerging UK based artists; Lauren Godfrey, David McLeavy and Matt Welch:

‘’Their respective practices each employ materials associated with domesticated spaces put to use as a negotiation of an engagement with art practice and design. These two categories establish a space where functionality can play a conspicuous role within their working processes, creating slippages between known materials and an informed use of space, image and form within everyday life as a historical resource. The works in this exhibition maintain a common  material consensus. Working “well” together within a hypothetical lounge; an heterotopic zone where our utilitarian material signifiers are shifted into a formal silliness; softer functions – and a historical laziness; designer units. The works collectively formulate a space for the experience of our own material signification.’’

Exhibition open March 30th – April 14th, 12-6pm Saturday, Sunday and by appointment @

Oval arts presents: Secuum Cheung/ Tracker Δ, Wednesday 27 March @ Oval Space, 29-32 The Oval, Bethnal Green

Seecum Cheung’s work explores the link between commerce, surveillance and seduction. Focusing on the idea of the captured image as a valuable resource for companies and governments in consumer analysis, her work explores data as a form of contemporary currency. Drawing parallels between the values of gold and data, Seecum correlates a unification between the concepts of marketing consumer analysis, including our own personal exhibitionism through social networking sites, which facilitate a market of surveillance and voyeurism.

In line with the exhibition Tracker ∆ the artist is giving away a piece of work for free. Vote for your favorite print by leaving your details in the allocated boxes within the gallery. The print with the most votes will be raffled off at the end of the exhibition; winner will be announced in June.

27th March – 7th June 2013

Preview: Wednesday 27th March 6pm – 9pm
