We are going to make these weekend guides a regular feature, helping you avoid boredom if you have no plans, or maybe unearthing a gem of a night out which has been flying under the radar.
So here are my hand picked things to do this weekend.
Introducing Live Recreate Daft Punk’s Discovery @ KOKO
Never ones to shy away from a challenge Introducing have set their sights on recreating another legendary electronic masterpiece live, Daft Punk’s ‘Discovery’. You can expect the French Duo’s opus to be re-imagined immaculately, completely live, note for note before your very ears.

Here is a big tune of the album:
Future Folk, Clutching At Straws, Two Tides, Jon Hart, Andrew Foster @ Camden Barfly
Come along to the Camden Barfly tonight to see a stunning line of up of some of the UK’s finest up and coming folk bands and take advantage of some very generous drink deals.
Get your folk on. Buy tickets here
Eraserheads @ Eventim Apollo
“The Beatles of the Philippines”. Mid 90’s alt-rock legends The Eraserheads have reunited for a special show at London’s Eventim Apollo. Probably the most successful, influential, and critically acclaimed band in Filipino history, seeing The Eraserheads live is a rare treat not to be missed.
See them live at the Eventim Apollo this Friday 04 April. Buy tickets here
Deaf Havana @ O2 Academy Leeds & Clapham Grand, London
As a Suffolk boy it hurts to recommend a band from Norfolk, but if you like your music loud, brash and preferably covered in tats, then a night at a Deaf Havana gig is perfect for you.
AND you can see them live at the O2 Academy Leeds this weekend, plus due to demand they have added a second date at London’s Clapham Grand next week.

Torvill & Dean’s Dancing On Ice: The Final Tour@ Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle
If you like dancing, and water in its solid state, then Dancing on Ice will be right up your street. As great as it is to see some of the celebs larking about on the slippery frozen stuff, the real draw here is that it is one of your last chances to see Torvill and Dean perform their 1984 gold medal winning routine ‘Bolero’ together.
So what are you waiting for? This is a once in a lifetime chance to see part of British Olympic folklore. Buy your tickets here.
Here’s the original 1984 performance if you need convincing:
