CABARET/COMEDY: Friday Night Freaks w/ EastEnd Cabaret + Marcel Lucont + Ria Lina | Udderbelly | 27 Jun
‘Normcore’ has no place at this late-night carnival comprising a whirl of cabaret, comedy and special entertainment presented by kinky ThisWeek interviewees EastEnd Cabaret. Sneering ‘Gallic Symbol’ Marcel Lucont, dotty comic Ria Lina, and ‘Ab Fab’-inspiration stand-up spawn Josh Howie all dabble in tonight’s freakery. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings | Shepherd’s Bush Empire | 27 Jun (pictured)
Funk-soul survivor Sharon Jones and ‘Back To Black’ collaborators The Dap-Kings join as one to ‘Give the People What They Want’, pouring hot toffee grooves all over tonight’s audience. Support is c/o R&B renaissance man Charles Bradley, NYC afrobeat band Antibalas and retro trio The Sugarman 3. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: The Importance Of Being Earnest | Harold Pinter Theatre | 27 Jun – 20 Sep
Still as sharp, crisp and witty as it was in 1895, Wilde’s well-preserved high-society satire gets a facelift c/o director Lucy Bailey. Nigel Havers, Rosalind Ayres, Cherie Lunghi and Martin Jarvis lead a quintessentially English cast. Details and tickets here.
