It’s Wear Something Gaudy Day today, a pretty niche special-day tailor-made for anyone wanting an official reason to go to the office dressed in, say, a bejewelled boob-tube. So while Wednesday looks pre-destined to be particularly garish, so what, because that doesn’t mean London’s midweek culture happenings represent anything but timeless class…


Richard Herring – Talking Cock: The Second Coming, Southbank Centre Purcell Rooms, 17-20 Oct
Richard Herring’s top-marked ‘Talking Cock’ update plays at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Rooms over three nights, exposing sundry survey-discerned truths about sex, the sexes and jelly in toilet roll. Tickets and info here.


Michael Clarke Company, Barbican, 17-27 Oct
Dance iconoclast Michael Clarke choreographs a collection of new works for his eponymous company. The dance double-bill will also feature music from Scritti Politti, and a specially commissioned live score by Relaxed Muscle. Details here.


Underground Picturehouse, The Water Poet, 17 Oct-24 Nov (pictured)
Reserve a sofa and/or beanbag at The Water Poet’s pop-up basement cinema, which tonight inaugurates its music-themed winter programme via a screening of Jonathan Demme’s 1984 Talking Heads study ‘Stop Making Sense’. ‘Sign O The Times – Prince’, ’30th Century Man – Scott Walker’, Scorsese’s ‘The Last Waltz’ and ‘Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars’ will also be shown on subsequent dates, £4.50 tickets for which are available here.
