Hotlist: Week eight

Work no longer matters

William Blake: Apprentice and Master

Because its nice to see something your mates haven’t put on. Everyone knows Blake is #bestpoeteva so here you can see him as an artist. The exhibition traces Blake’s Renaissance influences, and looks forward at how the generation of engravers after Blake followed in his footsteps.

When: Thursday; open until March 2015

Where: Ashmolean

Bloody Knuckles [ft The Shapeshifters]

Though the slightly cramped Carbon-era Bloody Knuckles may be gone for good, the Bully should prove the perfect venue for BK to really stretch its legs. With the Shapeshifters (of ‘Lola’s Theme’ fame) as special guests, this is the perfect way to end the term.

When: Wednesday

Where: Art Bar (Bullingdon Arms)

Burning Down the House

Same era to Bloody Knuckles, but the focus here is on 80s best in alternative pop and rock, rather than house. Expect perennial favourites Kate Bush, The Smiths, Talking Heads, The Cure, Pixies and many more.

When: Tuesday

Where: Cellar

Couple Richard and Corinne decide to leave the city for a house in the country. One night Richard brings a girl home; a girl he found on the road. Hot on the heels of The Pitchfork Disney, Crave and Grimm, Hypnotist theatre’s latest offering promises thrills and chills.

When: Tuesday-Saturday

Where: Burton Taylor Studio
