There are so many events in Canary Wharf and east London and we've picked out some things for each of the next few days – check back for daily what's on updates.




1. Game for a laugh?

Head up to Shoreditch if you’re feeling judgemental. Acting Up at Rich Mix offers audience members the chance to rate one improv comedy crew over another. Will you support the blues or the greens?

7.30pm, Thursday, April 14, £10, Rich Mix

2. Get rhythm

Slip under a tablecloth at Boisdale and tap your feet furiously as The Best Of Brazil And Bossa Nova comes to town featuring Luna Cohen. Shake those hips.

9.45pm, Thursday, April 14, from £7.50, Boisdale of Canary Wharf



Tony Mortimer of pop group E17 (he probably doesn't look like this any more)

1. Get E17 in E14

Singer-songwriter and East 17 mainstay Tony Mortimer arrives at Boisdale to showcase his works. New material looms large with an album in the pipeline. Let’s hope the show winds up being more than just Alright.

9.45pm, Friday, April 15, from £10, Boisdale of Canary Wharf

2. Get some justice

East London Dance pitch up at Stratford Circus to present Physical Justice a show so graphic it’s only for those over 12. Together and apart Sean Graham, Lee Griffiths, Duwane Taylor and Sara dos Santos will bend their way through the piece to Caleb Femi’s poetry.

7.30pm, Friday, April 15-16, from £10, Stratford Circus



The real Liam Gallagher and Damon Albarn square up at a charity football match in 1996 (this won't happen at Brooklyn Bowl)

1. Fake parade

Like robot wars, but between tribute acts. Brooklyn Bowl plays host to the age old debate – who’s better, the people pretending to be Blur or the people pretending to be Oasis? Blurd lacks focus or Oas-is dried up?

8pm, Saturday, April 16, £TBC, Brooklyn Bowl

2. Put your Ska face on

Les Thompson is bringing his Ska Orchestra to Boisdale – that’s 12 people (two of whom are current members of Madness) all set to belt out some Blue Beat tunes.

Various times, Saturday, April 16, from £10, Boisdale of Canary Wharf

3. Go down and ring Isbell

Are you ready? Ready for the arrival of “American Icon Jason Isbell”? Best known for his solo career, we’re told, Jason hails from Alabama and was once a member of the Drive-By Truckers (a very mild form of gang-related haulage assistance). The presence of a banjo on his knee has not been confirmed.

8pm, Sunday, April 17, £TBC, Brooklyn Bowl

4. Make some tracks

Fancy an evening of reworking Nepali traditions into stunning soundscapes? Then Rich Mix has what you need at Making Tracks.

8pm, Sunday, April 17, £12, Rich Mix

5 Folk it up

Get on over to Limehouse for four-piece folksters Concrete Mountain’s monthly appearance at Jamboree. Expect deep fiddle tunes, a “wild” frontman and some off the wall murder ballads all underwritten by the powerful slap of a double bass. Every third Monday of the month.

7pm, Monday, April 18, £4, Jamboree

6 Go quiz

The pub part-owned by Sir Ian McKellan runs a quiz on Mondays. So if general knowledge an possibly spotting A-list stars is your thing, that’s where you should go.

8pm, Monday, April 18, various prices, The Grapes



Austin Mahone at Indigo at The O2

1. Get hypnotised

Stare deep into the cool, cool eyes of pop star Austin Mahone when he comes to Indigo at The O2. That’s the best way to become a Mahomie (yes really) and join his legion of fans across the world.

7pm, Tuesday, April 19, £20, Indigo at The O2

2. Get down on the floor

Nobody puts Baby in the corner. No, Canary Wharf Group put her in the East Wintergarden instead. Dirty Dancing The Tribute Show offers fans of the film a high-energy live celebration of the moves and grooves therein.

7.15pm, Tuesday, April 19, £20, East Wintergarden



The View at Brooklyn Bowl

1. Take a sideways look

Fresh from recording album Ropewalk (produced by Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes) The View are all set for a show in North Greenwich. Expect a “vibrant, ambitious and rollickingly tuneful set”.

7pm, Wednesday, April 20, £16, Brooklyn Bowl

2. Get some Light relief

Trapped in a viscous circle of closed-minded business meetings? Fear not, soon you’ll be able to indulge in some Mr Blue Sky thinking by popping over the Thames to The O2 and seeing Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra.

6.30pm, Wednesday, April 20-26, from £50, The O2 arena
