Ok just a couple of dates for your diary if you fancy getting out these coming weekends. The pic above is of Sun Ra.

Hokaben is a new music festival in the heart of London's east end at the 93ft East venue, Brick Lane. The idea is to have a festival in our capital city bringing together the weirdest / heaviest / craziest / most awesome underground bands on the planet under one roof with not a foppish indie band or yawnsome postrock band in sight.

There are only 750 tickets so good luck. here.
