Lucy May | Hospitality

Lucy May presented her first live work, Hospitality, 6-9pm on Thursday 7th July at WW Gallery (TimeOut First Thursday)

A live video link from the artist's studio conveyed the manufacture of fake Bombay Mix, exploring themes of the handmade, repetitive labour and fakery. The work is an irreverent take on the idea of DIY hospitality, and a rebellious statement against the current abhorrence of the artist's hand in contemporary practice.

Honeytrap / Petrushka

“Balkan-inspired slice of craziness...Puts me in mind of some of Camper Van Beethoven's finer moments.”
- David Bowie, The Times

WW Gallery and Crooked Teeth present the Launch Party for Honeytrap's new album Petrushka on Thursday 2nd September 2010, 7pm til late at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club.

Energetic, irreverent and impossible to pin down, Honeytrap have forged an exciting and unconventional sound which embraces klezmer, folk, alt.rock and the more outré elements of pop. New album Petrushka brings these influences together into their strongest and most compelling release yet. David Bowie recognised the band's potential when he put them at the top of a new music poll in the The Times.

Honeytrap's launch gig will have amazing support in the form of the enchanting Olivia Chaney, who recently toured with Zero 7 and there will be puppetry and performance from the uniquely talented Monooka. Chris The Rock'n'Roll Town Crier will compère and DJ, plus there is art from WW Gallery's Boa Swindler and Sardine & Tobleroni.

Tickets are selling out fast and there is limited availability, so get yours now via the band's myspace page: or directly from

We look forward to welcoming you to a night of riotous and theatrical fun!
