Banksy hits Camden

4 new pieces all unveiled over this weekend. Quite easy to find along the Regents canal once you head off in the right direction, that is.The decorator one seems to have upset some of the graffiti fraternity though. It appears he's gone over a very old piece that had been there for 20+ years, even though others had scrawled over it in that time.

Soulwaxmas

At the start of December a few friends and I had our annual concert thing and having seen Chemicals and Fatboy Slim in previous years it was the time of Soulwax and 2ManyDjs.

Warmup in a very empty venue was Gyratory Sound System. A sort of weird brass band trio arrangement where the trumpet seemed to get smaller as the set went on.
Next up was someone called Micky Moonlight. He was really really bad! His music was alright but as soon as he tried to mix the tracks together disaster ensued. Perhaps it was nerves but he'd have had a better response if he played the tracks one after another. I guess he wasn't that popular as I can't find any clips on youtube. People must have prefered to save the memory cards for later.


Up next was Soulwax who played a really good, if short, set. The 50 minutes or so were really good with a quite disorientating light show. The final track which seemed to be jive-bunny mix of old skool anthems went down particularly well.


Errol Alkan was up next. …

Arturo Brachetti

Quick change artist Arturo has a show at the Garrick Theatre until January and its mind-blowing. I love trying to figure out how magic is done but this guy was too quick to figure it out. He must have gone through 100 costume changes during his show.
