We're finally going to see the Ed Ruscha exhibition at the Southhbank tonight. On Fridays they open late, so quick dinner and glass of wine and in we go. I love going to the Southbank at night, as you get to walk home along the river. (Although I think I am actually physically programmed to have Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks come into my head whenever I'm by the river. It's getting annoying.)
Tomorrow we're going to Blacktronica, one of my all-time favourite parties in London, who are having an 8th birthday party at The Albany in Deptford. Blacktronica has always been held in awesome arts spaces (originally at the Institute of Contemporary Art, then at the National Film Theatre), so it will be interesting to safari to South London to check out the Albany. Speech Debelle is doing a set.
On Sunday, we're going to see Mos Def. Who I actually saw once at Blacktronica. I remember because I didn't recognise him until somebody pointed him out. I was just thinking, 'Who is that singularly attractive young man?', and doing my best thriller dance. Always with the best way to impress, CJW.
What are you all doing? Have a flippin' good one. Here's Waterloo Sunset, so you can get it stuck in your heads too.
Waterloo Sunset – The Kinks
[Ok, my friend – and arbiter of extreme good taste – Gypsy Rose put awesome pictures of Marilyn on her blog, so I'm going to as well. Can't remember where I got it from, though! Sorry, photographer.]
