TODAY IN LONDON actress/comedienne Caroline Horton, Sonic Youth songwriter Thurston Moore, a pre-raphaelite siren, and Laughing Boy Nathan Caton all feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Laughing Boy Comedy feat Nathan Caton/Lucy Beaumont/Pat Cahill, Hackney Picturehouse, 20 Nov
Star of his own half-autobiographical Radio 4 show ‘Can’t Tell Nathan Nothing’, know-all comic Nathan Caton is the boss of tonight’s Laughing Boy board, on which BBC Comedy Award-winner Lucy Beaumont, sharp satirist Pat Cahill and a secret late arrival will also sit. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Thurston Moore/John Russell, Cafe OTO, 20 Nov
The world having just about forgiven him for cheating on Kim Gordon (not that Kim has), hangdog Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore turns to improv guitarist John Russell for a sequence of made-up duos – acoustic and plugged-in! Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Lizzie Siddal, Arcola Theatre, 20-21 Nov
Jeremy Green’s ‘Lizzie Siddal’ imagines the tragic life of the pre-raphaelite movement’s go-to model and muse, the beautiful shop girl Rossetti made his lover, Millais immortalised in his painting ‘Ophelia’, and who became an artist herself. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Mess, Bush Theatre, 20-21 Nov (pictured)
A ‘play with songs’ ticking off the trials, fears and anxieties that go hand-in-hand with anorexia, playwright/actress Caroline Horton’s acclaimed ‘Mess’ has earned praise for the way it bravely faces the “particularly thin elephant in the room” with the greatest tact. Details and tickets here.
