Come and experience an incredible line-up at November’s Clerkenwell ARTSlab. Our most experimental yet – mind-bending song, stories, comedy and cha-cha from the kings and queens of all that. Plus chips and cake.

Here’s why we can’t wait to get stuck in:

PARENTHESIS… prince of smooth-talking, forward-thinking, backward-walking electronic pop. His supernatural torch songs will break your heart and bend your brain. Fresh from shows at Paris’ Popfest, he’s working on his debut album. Check him out: https://youtu.be/83yqLn9PQS0

ALYS TORRANCE is a clown, storyteller and actor. She’s done Bollywood and Coronation Street. Tonight she presents Stanley Gibbons & His Amazing Stamp Collection: gasp in wonder at the amazing feats performed by Stanley Gibbons’s’s’s Amazing Stamp Collection (bring binoculars/reading specs).
“Simply hilarious” – The Stage.
“Flawless” – Fringe Report.
“Charisma in spades” – Metro.

STREATHAM COMMON (STATION) are 15 minutes of Julian Fox & Bob Karper, accordions & beats, deadpan & dance, songs & maybe film.

MAYA LEVY has retained her New Yorker accent despite living in London for the past dozen years. Professional singer, songwriter, actor and theatre maker, Maya plays the piano too. Her songs are influenced by folk music, musical theatre, classical music, with a hint of comedy and storytelling. Subjects range from medieval werewolves to Pocahontas to crazy teachers.www.mayalevy.co.uk

HANNAH LOVELL – a favourite of the famous Lantern Society delivers surreal folk storytelling and deadpan comedy with a velvety voice and metal-inspired bass hooks. She will grace the Clerkenwell ARTSlab with Kid Kirby on drums and clarinet. www.hannahlovellmusic.com

DIEGO BROWN AND THE GOOD FAIRY – pinching ourselves an drubbing our eyes.
