London Gigs: 19-25 January 2015



Darren HaymanGig Of The Week

If you’ve never been to Daylight Music – the wonderfully eccentric Saturday afternoon music session held at the stunning Union Chapel – make this the week you rectify that. For a suggested donation of £3.50, you can enjoy a cup of tea and a slab of homemade cake in one of the capital’s most beautiful spaces while enjoying some equally lovely live music.

This week they’ve lined up Darren Hayman, who’s using the occasion to launch his new album, Chants For Socialists – a collection of songs based on William Morris’s writing and recorded at three of his homes. We can’t imagine a better venue to hear it.

Announcement Of The Week

The first acts have been announced for Convergence 2015. Returning for its second year, the programme focuses on visual and musical artists who “deploy technology in diverse and innovative ways” and the line-up already boasts the likes of Pantha du Prince, Gary Numan, Tricky, Matthew Herbert, Portico, Kiasmos and Darkstar. Shows are scattered across London at venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Village Underground and St John at Hackney Church from 12-21 March.
