LONDON Star readers are putting on an evening of political and surreal comedy featuring live music in just over a week.
On Saturday May 13 the Constitution pub in Camden will host socialist poet Attila the Stockbroker, who has played thousands of gigs over the years and writes a regular Star column.
Edinburgh Festival favourite Simon Munnery will bring his barrel of laughs.
The comedian is best known for performing the character Alan Parker: Urban Warrior, a youth in a Clash T-shirt who rants against the system.
The night will be finished off with melodic music from Madame So, influenced by PJ Harvey, The Cure, and The Lemonheads. Their Parisian singer Solange Moffi appreciates “the punk aesthetic and the power of words.”
Tickets for the gig are £10 (or £5 unwaged). Proceeds go to the Star’s Fighting Fund so we can continue to work in favour of a left-wing government and the representation of workers and trade unions.
The gig takes place at The Constitution pub, 42 St Pancras Way, London, NW1 0QT, starting at 7pm.
