To Do List – January 2011

In the first of our soon to be notorious monthly To Do Lists we have free theatre, spectacular orchestral noise, naughty life drawing, cheap West End tickets and lots more to come!

12-22: 33% London Festival | Oval House | More info

33% London champions emerging talent in theatre and film through innovative performances, film showings and masterclasses. We’re particularly excited about Around the House which fuses site-specific works around the entire Oval House building.

Tues 18: Show us yer bits | 8pm | Roundhouse | More info

Have your say on the cutting edge of theatre, with 10 minute works in progress from some hot young things…Tickets are free  (email tickets@getinthebackofthevan.com) and it’s at our favourite offbeat venue in London Roundhouse.

Tues 18: Bright Club; Brains | 8pm-11pm | Wilmington Arms |

We love this pub x 100 and their quirky events programme. Bright Club is the ultimate in geek chic inviting some amazing geeks such as the raving Kant, Silvia Di Bianchi and Helen Keen (she understands rocket science)…combining brainy waffling with jokes about brains.

Fri 20: Boogaloo Stu’s Pop Kraft | 10pm-3am | Royal Vauxhall Tavern | More info

Our favourite polysexual clubbing extravaganza is coming up from Brighton to show us miserable Londoners’ a good time. Think: guilty pleasure pop, outrageous party games, balloon modelling, sock puppet academy, debauched life drawing, hair salon, play-doh penises, binbag couture & much more…Don’t miss!

Sat 22: Musical Comedy Awards Heat 3 | 1.30pm-4pm | Wilmington Arms | More info

Offbeat upcoming musical comedy superstars aplenty at the MCA heats. We’re superhappy our own Pistol & Jack got through last weeks heat into the quarter final! Hurrah


Wed 26: The Irrepressibles & Gabby Young and Other Animals | 8pm | Barbican | More info

Spectacular orchestral dream-folk we found at Latitude a couple of years ago. Gabby Young and Other Animals look like they’re going to give an absolutely superb performance.
