Today in London: Monday 17 December 2012
So, since there really isn’t all that much time to go til Christmas now, nobody wants to spend this particular Monday doing something that’s anything less than significant.
Fortunately, tonight’s cultural array looks to be a memorable one…
TODAY’S COMEDY CHOICES
The Boy With Tape On His Face, Duchess Theatre, 17 Dec – 5 Jan 2013 (pictured)
A silent smash at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, mime artist Sam Wills’ mute Boy toys with his ticket-buying audience, inviting comedy-loving citizens to join in a series of sweet and silly skits. As seen on ‘The Royal Variety Performance’, and now at Covent Garden’s Duchess Theatre, RSVP to the show via this link.
TODAY’S MUSIC CHOICES
See Hear Club Christmas Party, Chats Palace Library, 17 Dec
Its star attractions being music-playing by alt-folkists Peggy Sue and Landshapes plus a screening of Christmas cinema essential ‘Home Alone 2’, this See Hear party will also feature festive feasting, “other cool things”, and the chance to be very noisy in a library. Tickets via Facebook.
Slow Club, Koko, 17 Dec
I can’t think of any band I’d rather see live at Christmas time than ex “fat toddlers from Rotheram”, dream-pop duo Slow Club, which is fortunate, because they’re going to be touring in mid-December. Tonight, in fact, at Camden’s Koko. Tickets, please.
