Matthew E White

At last, the day we’ve all been awaiting all year… Pretzel Day. So I guess that means the only thing to do now is buy today’s star salted snack, and eat it. Which can be done in tandem with any one of these cultural activities…


Doc Brown, Udderbelly Southbank, 26 Apr/3 May
Oh looky, it’s Udderbelly fave Doc Brown, who’s probably sick (no joke) of being taken for an American mime act. He isn’t an American mime act, he’s a talkative British ‘hip-hop comic’/rapper with whom hilarity is a certainty. Got that? Okay. Details and tickets here.


Hyperlink, Tate Modern Tanks, 26-28 Apr
The Tate Modern plays to its name via this ultra-contemporary programme of ‘six degrees of separation’-themed live and static arts. In addition to sets by rappers Sway, Akala and Angel; Brighton songwriter Sebastian Blake and spoken-word artist George The Poet, the even features interactive classes with the likes of A-list paparazzo Rankin, streetwear designer Casette Playa, zine team It’s Nice That and architects Aberrant. Details and tickets here.


Agnès Varda Season, ICA, 26 Apr – 2 May
Pre-dating even the nouvelle vague aesthetes with her innovative first feature, 1955’s ‘La Pointe Courte’, experimental French filmmaker Agnès Varda is given her very own five-film season at the ICA. Details and tickets here.


Matthew E White, Queen Elizabeth Hall, 26 Apr (pictured)
Hairy pop shaman Matthew E White, him of ‘Big Love’ fame, makes rhythm-and-bluesy pop grooves to move to. Move to Matthew’s grooves tonight at Queen Elizbaeth Hall, as he plays his highest-capacity space to date. Details and tickets here.
