Today in London: Thursday 17 January 2013

By | Published on Wednesday 9 January 2013


Expert statisticians say this is the day that we’ll consign our new year’s resolutions to a ‘Room 101’-style scrap-pile of aerobics DVDs, diet protein shakes and alcohol-free ‘mocktails’. So “resolve, begone”, as TW London presents a range of naughty but nice cultural luxuries to usher in another great British year of laziness, lies and giving in…


House Of Mirth, Slaughtered Lamb, 17 Jan
The Slaughtered Lamb hosts a killer live line up tonight, as MCs Sara Pascoe and Jessica Forteskew drag sacrificial babes-in-arms Rich Fulcher, Bridget Christie, Lou Sanders, Jigsaw and streaky-masked enigma Baconface to the comedic chopping block. Event details and tickets here.

Ritzy Crackers, Upstairs at the Ritzy Picturehouse, 17 Jan
Dope rap-improv MCs Abandoman aka Rob Broderick, toothy T4 type Joel Dommett and character comedy’s most charming first lady, Cariad Lloyd, add piquancy and bite to this evening’s extra-crisp Ritzy Cracker. Event details and tickets here.


Peter Hook & The Light, Koko, 17 Jan
Forthright bassist Peter Hook is playing a controversial recital of New Order’s vintage-circa-1981 debut LP ‘Movement’, and whilst the stunt isn’t likely to please his estranged former bandmates, ie the ‘new’ New Order lot, nor improve fraught relations within the ‘old’ New Order… well, he’s doing it anyway. Event details and tickets here.


Metamorphosis, Lyric Hammersmith, 17 Jan – 9 Feb (pictured)
Having roved the world’s stages to great acclaim, the Lyric’s smash-hit Kafka adaptation is back for a mini stint at its original birthplace. Featuring a mesmeric score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, anti-gravity scenery and daring aerial feats, it follows the Gregor Samsa and family into dark and life-changing times. Event details and tickets here.
