Week In Week Out: Tickets For Things To Do This Weekend On Grazia iPad

Stuck for things to do this weekend? Download Grazia on the iPad and you can book tickets, buy books and music straight from the page. Grazia iPad Edition is available for £1.99 every Tuesday from Newsstand on the App Store on iPad or at www.iTunes.com/AppStore.

1) Listen To Alunageorge’s Album

Fresh from their collaboration with Disclosure George Reid and Aluna Francis are finally releasing their debut album, that might as well be called ‘fun party times’. It features 13 R&B infused bangers plus a cover of Montell Jordan’s New Jack Swing classic This Is How We Do It.

2) Watch Only God Forgives

Reteaming Ryan Gosling with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, brutally violent Bangkok revenge thriller Only God Forgives will yield its share of walkouts, as blades lacerate eyeballs and skewers eviscerate bodily organs. One amusing plus: a bleach-blond Kristin Scott Thomas as a foul-mouthed crime matriarch. (Charles Gant)

3) Visit Sturtevant: Leaps Jumps And Bumps

Elaine Sturtevant shocked the art world in the 60s by replicating the work of Warhol and Jasper Johns, starting a dialogue about the progeny of art in the process. This show is filled with her trash culture obsessions, including blow up sex dolls, Beavis & Butthead and Minnie Mouse.

4) See The Heat

Already a big US comedy hit, The Heat teams condescendingly uptight Federal agent Sandra Bullock with reliably unhinged, trash-talking Boston cop Melissa McCarthy for the sheer, ingenious pleasure of it. From Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, it’s agreeably – if formulaically – loopy.  (Charles Gant)

5) Eat At Toasted

The former manager of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant has opened a new al-fresco styled eatery that pairs a bespoke wine collection with tapas dishes like English peas with egg yolk and modernist mains like lamb with pomegranate seeds.
