Indie, grunge, jazz - it's a musical week in the city...
One Cut of the Dead
When: Tuesday 15 November, 7pm
Where: Nonsuch Studios
How much: From £7
The wonderful gang at Fortune & Glory Film Club are hosting a special, immersive screening of Japanese zom-com (that’s zombie-comedy, for the uninformed) One Cut of the Dead. Showing as part of the BFI’s In Dreams Are Monsters season, and hosted by one of the most inclusive, welcoming cinema groups in town, this promises to be great fun.
Tales from The Wedding Present
When: Wednesday 16 November, 7pm
How much: £22.50
Taking Something And Nothing, the second volume in his autobiography, on the road, The Wedding Present’s David Gedge will hit up the Metronome stage to chat all about his unique life in the music industry. Stacked with stories from decades in the indie scene and as a champion of the DIY ethic, Tales from The Wedding Present is bound to be fascinating.
Womxn in Animation
When: Wednesday 16 November, 6.30pm
How much: Free
Bringing together black women and non-binary artists and animators from across the UK, this important event offers guests the opportunity to hear from the likes of Jessica Ashman, Phoebe Boswell, Mothy Muyobo and Maybelle Peters, as curator Jade Foster leads a panel discussion on the crossovers between animation and the visual arts sector.
When: Saturday 19 November, 6.30pm
Where: Rock City
How much: £22
Do you ever listen to Smells Like Teen Spirit and think to yourself ‘You know what this is missing? A little influence from the King’? Boy, are you in luck - because the world’s most popular Elvis-fronted Nirvana tribute act are coming to Rock City. Yes, that’s right, two of the most iconic - and least similar - rock icons combine for a truly unique night of tunes.
A Sketch of Chet Baker
When: Sunday 20 November, 1pm
Where: Peggy’s Skylight
How much: £10
Get your skeep-beep de bop-bops and your keetle-at-de-op-de-days at the ready, as Chet Baker brings his trademark sound of thoughtful trumpet playing and distinctive, sultry singing to Peggy's Skylight this Sunday. The perfect way to wrap up a stressful - or chill - week, pop this one in your calendar for a relaxing afternoon.
We have a favour to ask
LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
