STORYTELLING / THEATRE FAIRYTALES FOR GROWN-UPS – GRIM GRIMMS – Ben Haggarty ventures into the wild side of fairytale to haul four lesser-known Grimm tales out of the nursery and back into the dark and full-blooded realm of fairytales for grown-ups. This is brimful of forbidden doors, magical transformations, betrayal, comeuppance, and talking skulls. Ben Haggarty blends the spontaneity and physicality of a master storyteller with Sherry Robinson’s exquisite cello, harp and accordion. Soho Theatre Upstairs, 21 Dean Street, W1D 3NE
GIG MOON DUO at EartH, presented by Eat Your Own Ears! “Moon Duo are a duo (no shit, Sherlock) comprised of Wooden Shjips frontman Ripley Johnson and partner Sanae Yamada. Whilst they initially made their name as a more stripped-down, electronically generated take on the neo-psychedelia purveyed by the Shjips, the EDM influence has come more to the fore on their new album Stars Are The Light.” Need a bunch to head along with? The LONDON INDIE MUSIC MEETUP GROUP are going… 11-17 Stoke Newington Rd, Dalston, London N16 8BH
