In the words of Rebecca Black, it’s Friday. Here are a few ways you can while away the hours on the final day of the working week.

1. I Wonder White you’re not going to this...

Shenton Dixon recently burst into the spotlight after a show-stopping appearance on BBC1’s The Voice, and is playing Boisdale with an authentic homage to two of the undisputed kings of soul, Barry White and Stevie Wonder. The perfect soundtrack to start your weekend off. Tickets: £10-£50.

9.45pm, Cabot Square

2. Get naked – musically that is...

After 27 years the Barenaked Ladies are still going strong, having just released a 14th studio album. The US pop-rockers are playing the Indigo at The O2, and are well worth checking out. Tickets: £32.10-£143.50.

7pm, North Greenwich

3. Scrum down in Shoreditch

Boxpark is showing Rugby World Cup matches on its big screen this autumn, while you can wile away the hours in a deck chair. Take in New Zealand v Tonga, which kicks off at 8pm. Will the Islanders spring a shock, or will we see a repeat of the All Blacks’ famous 102-0 win in 2000? Free.

8pm, Shoreditch
