Brett Domino Trio

TODAY IN LONDON internet medley-makers The Brett Domino Trio, ‘Purple Van Man’ Sean Lock, A-list dance DJ James Murphy and a severely unshaven Santa all feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Brett Domino’s Christmas Party, King’s Place, 19 Dec (pictured)
Song-spoofing keyboard cats The Brett Domino Trio (aka Brett Domino and Steven Peavis) MC this mistletoe and giant video screen-strewn festive revel, inviting on stage kissing cousins Brian Gittins, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ comedian Gatis Kandis, and, off BBC3, Yorkshire’s top dubstep producer C-BOMB. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Sean Lock – Purple Van Man, Fairfield Halls, 19 Dec
Enacting his new live DVD… well, live I guess, every man’s fave slightly weird everyman Sean Lock straps in and takes off on a trip inside a white van man’s psyche – what might he say, think and do – but with a surreal purplish tinge. Details and tickets here.

FILM: Pop-Up Screens presents… Arthur Christmas/Nightmare Before Christmas/Bad Santa, 20th Century Theatre Notting Hill, 19 Dec
Pop-Up Screens gives cinema-fans the pick of this triple bill of the most Christmassy films going, presenting animated kids’ treat ‘Arthur Christmas’, Tim Burton’s creepy Xmas eve ‘Nightmare’, and – strictly for the old and world-weary, Billy Bob Thorton in cynical Chrimbo classic ‘Bad Santa’. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: James Muphy + 2manyjs present Despacio, Hammersmith Town Hall, 19-21 Dec
DFA dance maestro James Murphy’s vinyl-only DJ franchise Despacio, a collaboration with Soulwax brothers David and Stephen Dewaele and DFA tech John Klett, is basically a giant, ringed speaker rig, via which they’ll amplify their immersive beats and mixes. Details and tickets here.
