1) See Frank Ocean, Jessie Ware and Jay-Z
The Yahoo! Wireless Festival features one of the summer’s best festival line-up’s (Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Miguel, A Tribe Called Quest, Jessie Ware) and is now housed in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It’s set to be a weekend of low frequency bass and raise-the-roof style dance moves.
2) Watch A Season In The Congo
Chiwetel Ejiofor hasn’t been on stage since his Oliver award winning lead performance in Othello back in 2008. He returns in this Joe Wright directed play which tells the tale of the first democratically elected Congolese Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba, and his fall from power.
3) Watch The Nashville DVD
You’ll know by now that Nashville has overtaken Revenge as the best soapy US drama on British TV. Set in the heartland of country music, it sees Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere playing duelling divas. Great performances and songs mean that this first season, 5 DVD-box-set is a must buy.
4) Listen To Daughn Gibson’s Me Moan
Me Moan is the excellent second album from Daughn Gibson- a Johnny Cash for Generation Y. Mixing deceptively simple country rock with the kind of production atmospherics you’d associate with the more experimental end of dance music, the results are wonderful, like James Blake with a twang.
5) Visit Shake Shack
Riding on the wave of US imports, Shake Shack is the latest fast food craze to hit the UK, almost a decade after the first one opened in the States. Hot dogs, milkshakes and hand-formed burgers are all on the menu. We’re making yummy noises as we type.
