ThisWeek’s tipped events for this most Monday of days are as follows, with the kick off of an Edinburgh preview fest, a little bit of nervous soul, and some stripped back Shakespeare …

COMEDY: Angel Comedy Festival, Camden Head, 28 Apr – 4 May (free)
A testing lab for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe comedy-hits-in-waiting, Angel’s mish-mash of 100% gratis shows will feature, over the coming week or so, Richard Herring, ‘Good News’-bearers Luke Toulson and Joel Dommett, loveable loon Simon Munnery, improv rap favourites Abandoman, brainy political satirist Andy Zaltman, livewire wit Patrick Monahan over, with musical spontaneacs The Showstoppers stealing the spotlight tonight. Details here.

MUSIC: Ava Luna, Birthdays, 28 Apr
Peppy NYC septet Ava Luna, who ply a mix of doo-wop, dance, R&B and ‘nervous soul’ (the genre of their own devising), celebrate their new LP, ‘Electric Ballroom’, with a bright light and noise show at Birthdays. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s Globe, 28 Apr
Actors Emma Pallllant and Simon Bubb pose as lovers in denial in Shakespeare’s skin-tight psychological jolly, which the Globe is staging in a slightly scaled-back form so as to fit it in its ‘Globe To Globe’ international travel case. Details and tickets here.
