The Glory, Thurs 8th Oct

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, because it’s important. The Glory are doing something important. It’s TONIGHT (Thursday, hot off the press). It’s to help the refugees. It’s called Glory Aid. Like Live Aid but without all the stupid twats. Instead you’ve got seminal performers like John Sizzle (“ladies and gentlemen it’s MARY!”), Jayde Adams (Tesco Metro, opera), A Man To Pet (butt plugs, taramasalata), Myra DuBois (Margaret Thatcher, Sambuca), Jonbenet Blonde (Jessica Simpson, Claire’s Accessories), Jacqui Potato (Animal of the Day) and of course Jonny Woo (opaque tights, condescension). What a lineup! £10 donations please.

281 Kingsland Road, E2 8AS. Shows from 7pm. £10 donation.



Salacious samphire! Mouthwatering Malbec! Tongue-tingling Tanqueray! These are just a few of the things you can enjoy at Counter. Counter, in case you’re not cool enough to know yet, is a swanky brasserie under an arch in Vauxhall. It’s lovely. The tables are white marble. There’s low lighting. They even play slow versions of Cascada songs. It’s all very ambient. Anyway it’s perfect for a wind-down after a heavy weekend, or the calm before the storm in preparation for one! Shout-out to lovely Gin the waiter, who we have a crush on. Yes, he’s called gin. We’ll have a double please.

Arch 50, 7 – 11 South Lambeth Place, SW8 1SP. 7am – half midnight from Monday to Thursday, 8am – 1:30am weekends.


City of Quebec, Friday 9th Oct

The City of Quebec is one of this mad old city’s most historic gay boozers. Nestled in a little side street near Marble Arch, it’s dusky booths and a swirl-pattern carpets harken back to days of old, when Madonna still had her last name and Ian McKellen was a twink. It’s the perfect place for a salubrious, calm weekend pint. It’s got a lovely atmosphere for the coming cooler months too, all twinkling wall lights and embossed oak tables. Sip a pint, bring a good book and settle in.

12 Old Quebec Street, W1H 7AF.


Hippodrome, Saturday 10th Oct

This weekend at the Hippodrome, you’ll be treated to An Audience With TJ Higgs. She’s one of the country’s most celebrated psychic mediums, famous her bubbly personality, and speaking to people’s dead cats! Well not cats. Ancestors. Want to know where you came from? Want to know what it’s all about? Want to know where you left your iPhone 5 charger last weekend? Well TJ Higgs is the RIGHT LADY TO ASK. Sip some champagne, sit back, and let her take you on a cerebral journey of discovery (or, if you ask her if you can speak to Madonna, a cerebral journey of discography!). 

Hippodrome Casino, Cranbourn Street, Leicester Square, WC2H 7JH. 12 midday. Lunch and show £45.  


West 5, Saturday 10th Oct

Watch out Ealing, Phi Phi O’Hara’s coming to West 5! She’s a one. She’ll be doing what she does best, which is…um…well, we’re not sure actually. She’ll storm around the stage and be horrible to people probably. It’ll be a great night anyway. She’s very entertaining. Plus she’ll be celebrating her birthday that night! Alaska will be there too, releasing her new album, “Anus”. A high-brow night all-round then.

Pope’s Lane, W5 4NT. 8pm – 3am. Tickets from £15.
