Ian Smith & Rob Beckett, Camden Head, 8 Feb
Having earned plaudits galore at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe, bearded jester Ian Smith and absurdist comic Rob Beckett share ideas for this year’s festival, each presenting a sixty-min preview for show-goers pleasure. Details and tickets here.


Amateur Best, Rough Trade East, 8 Feb
Professional pop soloist Joe Flory, aka maker of slow-spiralling synth specials Amateur Best, plays a free in-store set of selected tracks featuring on his new CD, ‘Not Thrills’. Ironically, thrills are included. Details and tickets here.

It’s the real life inspirational tale of seven schoolgirls who campaigned against the unfair treatment of asylum seekers, and features a live soundtrack care of dub MC Soom T and grime artist Patricia Panther. Details and tickets here.
