- Blockheads 25/05/2013
7.30pm £18.00 adv £21.00 door
“The tightest white funk band to merge from this island in decades!” In 1977 The Blockheads were Ian Dury's marvellous musical platform from which he launched his highly original and brilliant vaudevillian songs. A superb blend of funk, music hall, ska and r'n'b embellished with jazz touches. Today vocal is Dury's old friend and minder Derek 'The Draw' Hussey whose sandpaper estuary vocals do the songs proud. Chaz Jankel, the songwriting partner and musical brain behind much of Dury's great stuff provides his distinctively airy keyboards, John Turnbull still on guitar, the ever-animated Norman Watt-Roy still on bass, plus other original keyboardist Mickey Gallagher, guitarist Lee Harris, saxman Gilad Atzmon and drummer Dylan Howe The quality of musicianship here, at times is like the Average White Band meets the Rolling Stones! An evening of classic songs and memories including 'Sweet Gene Vincent', 'What a Waste', Sex and Drugs and Rock'n'Roll', 'Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick' . Plus many new songs & the last single Dury ever recorded with the band, 'Dance Little Rude Boy'

- Daniel Bye. The Price of Everything 31/05/2013
8.00pm £10.00 (£8.00 concs)
George Session. How much is beauty worth? What will people pay for an air guitar on eBay? Can I have a glass of milk? These urgent questions and others are answered in The Price of Everything, a performance lecture about value. Daniel Byes whistlestop tour of bizarre facts and impassioned arguments is occasionally shambolic and often tendentious - but always a joy to watch. Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, this show is a must if youve ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value. And you get a free glass of milk.
