Hotter  

Ell and Mary best friends and ex-girlfriends who are bored of playing it cool.

This is a show about what gets you hot. The duo asked women and trans people aged 11 to 97 what makes them sweat, flush, rub and gush. OK, they didn’t ask the 11-year-old exactly the same questions… 

Then they made a sweaty verbatim dance party out of their answers.

Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hotter is launching arse-first in your direction. Blushing already?

Shura

Shura makes a stunning return with brand new track BKLYNLDN, the first taste of Shura’s much-anticipated second album, which she is currently working on in the wake of 2016’s celebrated debut, Nothing’s Real.

BKLYNLDN marks the start of a new chapter (musically, geographically, emotionally) for Shura. That timeless look at long-distance romantic longing – if told through the modern lens of apps, texts, and anxiety-inducing silences – it’s a cinematic, exquisitely intimate examination of what presence and absence means in modern relationships; a passionate, tactile record about connection in volatile times; and, despite its cleansed sonic palette, still the unmistakable sound of Shura.

When is it? Thursday 14 – Monday 18 November 2019 

Where is it? London, Glasgow and Manchester

Ezra Furman

Ezra Furman has announced a new tour in support of his upcoming album, Twelve Nudes.
