I’d like to yeah. I’d go to a lot of them but if I was going to pick some I’d say:Intergender Wrestling (Kevin Eldon!)Alan Moore’s Dodgem Logic (because it’s at the Round Chapel)Man/MachineThe Goodbye Library (just because I saw Miriam Elia at literary death match and she was pretty funny)

Just spotted this (and yes, I know it’s in Tower Hamlets):http://www.richmix.org.uk/aandc_music_cybraphon.htm
Cybraphon is the Bafta Award-winning autonomous emotional robot indie band. Created by Edinburgh-based music and arts collective FOUND, Cybraphon is an interactive, mechanical band consisting of acoustic instruments, antique machinery and found objects played by over 60 robot beaters and motors – all housed in an antique wooden display case.For its installation during London Word Festival , Cybraphon will be playing a brand new, very special composition: a JG Ballard short story read by Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap), with musical accompaniment.
