5 Things To Do This Weekend... Watch The Way Way Back, Visit Peter Doig’s Exhibition, Eat At Flesh & Buns

1.Watch…The Way Way Back

Fox Searchlight (Little Miss Sunshine, Juno) hits the US indie-comedy sweet spot again with sly charmer The Way Way Back, a coming-of-age tale about an insular teen who flourishes when local water-park manager Sam Rockwell takes him under his wing. With Steve Carell, Toni Collette. Charles Gant

In cinemas now

2. Go To The Peter Doig Exhibition

Influenced by likes of Van Gogh and Matisse, Peter Doig’s international life (from Edinburgh to Trinidad via Dusseldorf) can be seen in the development of his paintings, featuring ghostly figures and dream-like landscapes.

No Foreign Lands is on until November 3

3. Listen To The Neon Jungle Single

Written by cocknbullkid, the debut single from girl-band Neon Jungle sounds like Little Mix crossed with Icona Pop. Irresistibly catchy and with enough edge to keep things exciting, it’s a strong, wonky -pop debut.

4. Eat At Flesh & Buns

Taking on a very niche aspect of Japanese cuisine – izakaya, since you’re asking – this bustling diner from the guys behind Bone Daddies combines sashimi and pickles with the much famed stuffed hirata buns (steamed buns which you fill with fish or steak) and a winning cold sake-cocktail list.


5. Listen To The King Krule Album

With a gruff baritone that belies his still-teenage age, Archy Marshall finally releases his debut album. Produced by XX and Savages collaborator Rodaidh McDonald it’s a brilliant collection of future troubadour classics like Tom Waits jamming with Jamie T.
