Aziz Ansari

Granted, we’d all secretly quite like to pass most of this pleasant Saturday sunbathing and lazing, but there’s still space in the timetable for a little ‘artistic enlightenment’, the path leading to which is via these easy steps…


Aziz Ansari – Buried Alive, Hammersmith Apollo, 15 Jun (pictured)
Actor, comic and sardonic pal to rapstars Kanye West and Jay-Z, Aziz Ansari’s agenda tonight isn’t at all recreational, or based in a park. Sharp, cool, and nobody’s fool, Ansari is always pro, and will be showing that tonight via his first British gig in five years. Details and tickets .


Festifeel, Islington Metal Works, 15 Jun
This year’s Festifeel MD Fearne Cotton has chosen Maverick Sabre, Tribes, Gabrielle Aplin, Mista Jam, VV Brown, Goldierocks, Abandoman, Chloë Howl and ‘X-Factor’ alum Kye Sones as the acts she wants to watch, and all as a favour to the one charity most close to her heart/bosom, breast cancer combattants CoppaFeel! Details and tickets here.

Maria Minerva, Peckham Palais, 15 Jun
Estonian alt-pop starlets are fairly rare, as, by proxy, is tonight’s sighting of Estonian alt-pop starlet Maria Minerva. She’ll be gracing Peckham’s famed Palais this eve, primarily to play her dazed, narcotic line in lo-fi hypno-pop to anyone who’ll listen. Details and tickets here.


Tutto Bene, Mamma?, The Print Room, 15 Jun – 6 Jul
What sets April de Angelis’s translation of this “immersive” play by Italian writer Gloria Mina, as is based on the real life tale of a mother and her young son, is that it’s staged with the lights off. Like, in total pitch blackness. Details and tickets here.
