For a piffling £15.75 you can book a ticket to see Police Dog Hogan and extra special guest Neil Innes perform at The Jazz Cafe on Sunday 26th of April. Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic seven-piece, combining fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass, drums and guitars with four-part harmonies in a mix of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Their songs range from the wistful and poetic to out-and-out, foot-stomping tales of doomed barbecues, French mustard and falling in love on a Tennessee highway.

‘Demolition Derby’, the inaugural group exhibition at Fold in Fitzrovia opened on Friday the 13th of March. The works in the exhibition all share the common experience of being put through their paces. Over time they have been scolded, ignored, battered, slapped about and worked to breaking point in order to arrive at the finished article. Almost wasn't good enough and adequate didn't cut it. They have been taken to pieces and put back together in an effort to transcend the satisfactory, enduring rights of passage that have imbued them with character and resilience.

On Facebook artist friends are nominating each other to do a "Landscape Challenge." When Marguerite Horner asked me to pick three landscape paintings I initially thought of various paintings of nice trees, streams and clouds by Constable, and nice paintings of horses by Stubbs etc but they were all things I liked rather than loved. Here are three paintings whose width is greater than their height, that have always meant a lot to me. I appreciate none of my choices are "pure landscapes" because they all feature people in them but they'll have to do... 1) The Execution of Emperor Maximilian (1869)by Édouard Manet (You can see this painting at The National Gallery in London)
