one of the things about living in london is that there is so much fab stuff to do. whilst there is a lot that can cost loads there is also a lot of free stuff. here's a few i'm going to be checking out...
art installation at the V and A - 25 november - end january. robert del naja and neil davidge have collaborated with massive attack's tour designers UVA on an installation in the courtyard of london's V&A museum. 'volume' opens on 25th november and runs until the end the end of january.
belleville rendezvous with live music score - 3 december. i am really excited about this one. i caught some of this at the big chill. the film is shown but with a live score that is a mix of DJ and live instrumentation. it may sound weird but it will be a wonderful experience.
ben westbeach at big chill house - 28 november. ben wetsbeach is a new kid on the block, and his no 1 fan seems to be gilles petersen, (and his no 2 fan seems to be joel). he's playing a live set
jon hopkins and ulrich schnauss at big chill house - 30 november. second fab free gig in a week at the big chill house. jon hopkins album contact note is one of the most played on my ipod at the moment along with the compilation the art of chill 2 which he put together a few years back and is currently a bargain on amazon.
laura b at the big chill house - 6 december.
and some things i'm lining up that are not free (sadly)...
a visit to the wildlife photographer of the year exhibition - always an annual baker family pilgrimage
chelsea v arsenal - yes i have got tickets - can't wait - will be our first match of the season
DJ shadow at brixton
ice skating at kew gardens - that's also become a bit of a christmas tradition for a few of us from grace
looks like it's going to be a good month...
