sale now 020 8546 3516)

When Oceansize christened themselves back at the start of the third millennium,
they didn’t just pick a name, they set themselves a challenge. Their mission statement was to make the biggest music possible, adventures on the high seas of
future-rock giganticism that could never, ever stop. It also meant that every album
they made would have to be even bigger, heavier, than the last one. Now a
supporting band for Coheed and Cambria’s European leg as well as
Apocalyptica.

Laugh with Geoff Norcott, Walton-on-Thames

Geoff Norcott at Walton

Friday 25th April 8PM – Comedy once a month at Riverhouse Barn, Walton

Described as “The first comedian of rap” by Craig Charles, Geoff is a high-energy performer whose strength is his devastatingly accurate parody of the violently misogynist attitude that pervades the rap scene.

Faithfully recreating the genre’s hateful lyrics and arrogant stance, he uses the usual weapons in the musical comedian’s armoury to drive his point home. But that message, and the accuracy of his renditions raise this well above the norm.
Away from the parodies, his more straightforward stand-up on everyday observational topics are delivered with an easy confidence and no small measure of charm.
