Boom. Clerkenwell ARTSlab – the club where you like to get stuck in – kicks off a mouthwatering season of song, spoken word and snortling with a line-up that oozes quality and the now.
David Gunawardana – hear songs from this Hertfordshire-based singer-songwriter’s debut EP, launched this month. David has a love of the folk tradition from both sides of the Atlantic, his songs suggest ancient folk lineage, and his delivery has a stillness and spirituality that takes you on a journey to another world.

Jamie & the Jets – the West Sussex fab four are back with their wisdom about therapy, tenderness and the pop envelope, all wrapped in top-drawer songs. Kneel before this: https://bit.ly/2QlohPn

Diego Brown and the Good Fairy will be biting their fingernails to the quick quick slow. Show them you care.
And as usual there will be candle-lit cakes, intervalistic music and enormous chips to punctuate the culture binge.
It costs £8/5 to get in and you can drink as much as you like as long as you pay for it and look after yourself.
Doors: 8pm for an 8:15pm start.
