Death Ship 666

TODAY IN LONDON medically trained singer of song Adam Kay, steely rockers Alice In Chains, breathy chanteuse Jane Birkin and a sinkable ‘Titanic’ spoof all feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Amateur Transplants – Adam Kay’s Bum Notes, Epsom Playhouse, 9 Nov
Arch ex-anaesthetist and one-time Amateur Transplant Adam Kay sits at the piano and sings naughty songs, specialising in playing “fast-paced filth” that’s always in time, if a little off-key. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Death Ship 666 – The Epic Disaster Parody Play, Leicester Square Theatre, 9 Nov (pictured)
This “wonderfully dark” dramedy-at-sea lovingly rips off ‘Titanic’ (the OTT movie, not the real-life disaster of 1912; that’d be tasteless) via a variety of song and dance and a whole lot of over-acting by its bizarre cast. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Alice In Chains, Alexandra Palace, 9 Nov
Loved by many, loathed by granny, rock necromancers Alice In Chains free the beast that is their highly-rated new LP, ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’, at this vast Ally Pally (head)banger. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Jane Birkin – Arabesque, Barbican, 9 Nov
Serge Gainsbourg’s classic chansons are given an added splash of Arabic colour by his one-time flame Jane Birkin, who makes Maghreb rhythms and Eastern harmonies along with Djamel Benyelles, virtuoso violinist and collaborator with Chebs Khaled and Mami, and his band Djam & Fam. Details and tickets here.
