Ólafur Arnalds

In case anyone cares, it’s Leave The Office Early Day in at least one workplace in America. Or potentially, none. I mean, time is cash, and cash is scarce. So whilst that isn’t any great shakes for the fate of this financially-unrealistic occasion, you can find consolation in the following reasons to leave work – well… on time, really.


Channel 4’s Comedy Showcase feat Roisin Conaty/Rob Beckett/Pat Cahill, Comedy Store, 3 Jun
Ringmaster Paul Chowdhry whips into shape a circus of Channel 4-chosen comics, who are; brassy broad Roisin Conaty, off-beat oddball Pat Cahill, ‘chavvy’ fabulist Rob Beckett and Storytellers’ Club kids Tom Craine and Celia Pacquola. Details and tickets here.


Ólafur Arnalds, St John At Hackney, 3 Jun (pictured)
Scandinavian minimalist Ólafur Arnalds is as well liked on this side of the North Atlantic Ocean as he is in his native Iceland. He’s skipping over that very sea tonight, with it in mind to show off his classical/pop/electronica/ambient amalgam and new LP ‘For Now I Am Winter’. Details and tickets here.


Anatomy Of A Murder, 3Space Hub Blackfriars, 3 May – 29 Jun
For those that haven’t heard of large-scale upcyclers 3Space‘s Blackfriars-based Hub, it’s a hive of non-profit artistic activity – an ‘anything art’ space, if you like – which, this time last year, was an empty commercial office block. Tonight, it hosts ‘pop-up’ theatre company Too Short, who’ll pop in to give London its first ever site-specific sighting of ‘Anatomy Of A Murder’, a legal thriller based on Justice John D Voelker’s courtroom novel of the same name, and adapted for the stage by Elihu Winer. Details and tickets here.
