Here’s your weekly list of interesting stuff with which you might fill your weekend.
Watch this: What Richard Did
A chilling Irish drama that dares us to consider just how far reasonable people are liable to go when the red mist descends. When a popular and charming teenager commits a sudden, violent act, it has a devastating effect on him, the community and his family. Don’t expect a happy ending. Trailer below.
Throw shapes here: Ben UFO Fabriclive launch party, Fabric, Fri 11th
There’s a stonking line-up this week at Fabric to celebrate the launch of FABRICLIVE 67: Ben UFO and the Hessle Audio squad return to Room One with the crew inviting Glasgow’s legendary Optimo to spin one of their mind-blowing sets alongside the more techno minded MMM duo, who are performing live.
Manchester’s Hoya:Hoya club night steps up for their first Room Two session, adding a couple of big name draws to the mix: Planet Mu’s trailblazing Kuedo is set to headline with his new live/AV show, and Hotflush’s Lando Kal is making the journey from his native Germany to join in the fun. There’s also a much awaited DJ set from Altered Natives.
Sonic Router return to Room Three to help join the dots between the other rooms with a set from Hessle associate Peverelist, among others.
Fabriclive, Fri 11th, 10:00pm ~ 7:00am, 77a Charterhouse Street, EC1M 3HN
See this: Peter Strain exhibition at Coningsby Gallery
Award-winning illustrator Peter Strain believes “much modern film-marketing imagery [has] no soul or meaning behind it” – so he’s reinterpreted a series of movie posters using his distinct hand-lettering style. His main skill is cramming in lots of information without making the artwork look cluttered. You can see the show at the Coningsby Gallery until 19 January (free entry, closed Sunday). You can also buy reproductions of some of the prints on show.
