Monday 9th November, web Jarvis Cocker, Village Underground

The former Pulp man is relocating the piece he performed recently in the French capital to Shoreditch. This three-day event sees members of the public BYI (bring your own instrument) to participate in on-the-spot improv accompanying various types of exercise classes. Cocker’s artist mates will also be joining this eccentric project at various points, culminating in a concert on Wednesday evening. For more info go to


Tuesday 10th November, Flaming Lips + Stardeath And White Dwarfs, The Troxy

Wayne Coyne and his nutjob crew tote their brand new album, ‘Embryonic’, which hears them return to their ’60s/’70s psych-rock influences. In a fine display of nepotism, Coyne’s nephew, Dennis fronts support band SAWD, who play not radically dissimilar space rock, with a country-rock tinge.


Wednesday 11th November, Gonzales + Akira The Don, The Pigalle Club

With recent achievements including a 27-hour performance and keyboard duel with Andrew WK, Parisian keyboard whizz Gonzales is something of an extreme pianist. This is the second installment in a four-week run of his ‘piano talk shows’. Each week Gonzales has a different guest and tonight it is the turn of Brummie laptop rapper Akira The Don and hula hooper, Marawa The Amazing. Quite a unique night of entertainment.


Thursday 12th November, Vladislav Delay + Food + Eyebrow, Union Chapel

Aka Sasu Ripatti, the Berlin-based Finnish composer of minimal electronica who’s worked with everyone from Massive Attack to Black Dice and Ryuichi Sakamoto is in the UK for a rare appearance. The show is co-headlined by British-Norwegian ambient jazz outfit, Food and trumpet/drums duo Eyebrow are in support.

Friday 13th November, David Cronenberg’s Wife + Gyratory System + Deathray Trebuchay + Jamie N Commons, The Windmill

Defy the myth of Friday the 13th with the lucky line-up of Tom Mayne’s Fall-inspired, antifolkers who headline, playing from recent second album, ‘Hypnagogues’. Support from Andrew Blick’s experimental electronica as Gyratory System, and Balkan gypsy brass from Deathray Trebuchay.

Saturday 14th November, Lucky Dragons, ICA

The freaky, trance-inducing, electro-psychedelia from LA’s Lucky Dragons, is a beguilingly delicate take on Arthur Russell‘s and Four Tet‘s avant pop. Their last ICA visit saw them set-up stage in the middle of the audience as opposed to the actual stage, making for a ‘no fourth wall’ performance. This is the opening night of a nine-day festival of experimental music and sound throughout the ICA, with performances, workshops and discussions.


Sunday 15th November, Atlas Sound + Sian Alice Group, Cargo

Atlas Sound is the 4AD-signed solo project of the often controversial Deerhunter front man Bradford Cox, who plays a strange, haunting strand of psychedelic pop as heard on recent second album, ‘Logos’. Support comes from London quartet working their driving mix of psych rock, pastoral nu-folk and grooves.
