Friday is upon us, the eagle has landed and we're ready to make the most of it. Here are some SAINT LUKE approved ways of having some fun and burning some cash in London this weekend.
Union Chapel, TONIGHT, £20 The head Lemonhead and ’90s alt rock hero, returns with his acoustic guitar to dip into the Lemonheads discography, his own lovely solo material and some of the many fine cover versions he's notched up over the years.
Rio, Saturday, £8.50. One of the greatest fright flicks of all time, ’The Shining’ sees Jack Nicholson drag his wife and psychic son up a mountain to be the hotel’s winter caretaker.
Exhibition: Self, Lazarides, until 17 March. "The result of more than a year of translating metaphorical blood, sweat and tears into paintings, is an exhibition of living, breathing self-portraits that laugh in the face of our filtered Instagram culture."
South Kensington, TONIGHT, free. It’s time once again for the monthly late opening of the museum. Check out the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition or join an expert-led discussion about digital image manipulation.
Islington Green, Saturday, free. An initiative originally run in Cape Town and now spreading kindness far and wide, The Street Store sees groups of volunteers gather donations from their local community and display them in an outdoor ‘shop’, making items of clothing and accessories available for free to homeless people in the area.
Trapeze, TONIGHT, £7, £5 adv. Southern Hospitality’s night named after an annual hip hop bash in Chicago promises the ‘buckest, hypest and widest’ music around. Founders Rob Pursey and Davey Boy Smith will be banging out beats from the likes of Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Three 6 Mafia, Lil Boosie, Outkast, Cash Money and Ludacris.
