This is the Day

From growing up mingling with rock royalty and the Kray twins, to being the only constant member of post-punk institution The The, singer/songwriter Matt Johnson joins us as Guest Editor. In his candid Run Riot interview Matt offers us an insightful and passionate critique of his own experiences in the music industry and his relationship with the shifting cultural dimensions of our Capital. Read the article here ahead of the new documentary featuring Matt - Inertia Variations (ICA, 20-26 Oct), and enjoy his selection of events picked for you.

If you're curious about how London's evolution affects culture, then read this optimistic insight (and watch the short film) about the future of the UK's nightlife from industry insider Kitty Lester; from the contemporary dance world, Brendan Keaney tells us about the Bonnie Bird Choreography Fund's new award - an opportunity to receive £10,000! There's also a feature from Barrel Organ Theatre's Dan Hutton on their new show Anyone's Guess How We Got Here; a brilliant horror show that investigates the weight of debt.
