A bit of a special one this. Since the researchers and academics are having fun in the Bloomsbury Theatre this month, we’ve decided to turn over our regular Wilmington Arms slot to a bunch of people from the world of music, telling funny stories and making jokes about the world of studios, gigs, record shops, tour vans and opera houses.
The lineup features:
Elis James, comedian, MC and pathological music fan
James Sherwood, comedy pianist and dissector of pop
Cat Rogers, opera diva and Cream off of Strawberry & Cream
MJ Hibbett, whimsical songwriter and musical theatre performer
Tim Chipping, indie hero and music journalist
David Barnett, music writer and eclectic frontman
Georgina Terry, Rock Star and raconteuse
Simon Price, music journalist and Manics fan
Tickets are £5 from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/150516
Doors are at 7.30pm, and the gig should be over at 10.30.
