McNeil & Pamphilon

As we reach the weekend (well, nearly), practice your happy Saturday night outlook via the following distinctly un-Thursday-like activities…


McNeil & Pamphilon Go 8-Bit, Wenlock And Essex, 19 Sep (pictured)
Sketchomaniacs McNeil & Pamphilon challenge tonights’s guests, “bang on” comic trio Sad Faces and Editors’ Award winners Casual Violence, to press ‘play’ on this ‘GamesMaster’-style night featuring gaming-based gags, skits and songs “to make you nerdgasm”. Winners win prizes and losers face a horrible fate. Details and tickets here.


St John Sessions presents… Tim Hecker, St John At Hackney, 19 Sep
The superlative St John Sessions flies in Canadian ambient man Hecker to play variations on his 2011 LP, ‘Ravedeath 1972’, in pitch black conditions, with avant garde icon Pete Swanson and Tri Angle Records-signed Vessel also slated to face the dark. Details and tickets here.


The Lyons, Menier Chocolate Factory, 19 Sep – 16 Nov
Every lady’s dream beau (pre-the cheating revelations, that is), ‘Miranda’ star Tom Ellis, strikes a dashing pose in Nicky Silver’s one-time Broadway play, a savage and heart-breaking fam-com in which The Lyons gather at their dying father’s hospital bed, only for their compassion to give way to betrayal and bickering. Ah, families. Details and tickets here.


Astronomy Photographer Of The Year 2013, Royal Observatory, 19 Sep – 23 Feb 2013
Shot by amateurs and pros alike (the finalists shortlisted at this link), this inter-galactic photo competition showcases images of mind-melting lunar/solar scapes and deep-space pics taken by robots. Details here.
