Withnail & I is perhaps our favourite film of all time, so neon are looking forward to visiting ‘Withnail & Me: The Finale Photographs by Murray Close‘.
This photography exhibition showcases a collection of iconic photographs and previously unseen prints taken on location in Camden and Cumbria during the filming of this now cult classic film.
Panned on it’s release, this film is living proof you shouldn’t always listen to critics. If you haven’t seen the film then we highly recommend watching it. If you have seen the film then this exhibition should be of interest to you.
Proud Camden 20th June – 1st September 2013.

The D*FACE New World Disorder exhibition includes the artists latest body of work, reflecting upon times of chaos, disorder and loss, as informed by shifting circumstances in the social climate.
Exploring topical and longstanding dystopian sentiments, New World Disorder confronts the effects of love and loss from a physical, mental and cultural standpoint, drawing upon the artist’s direct experiences.
The exhibition also features a one off opportunity to experience D*Face’s working environment by visiting his studio space which is located above the StolenSpace Gallery inside The Old Truman Brewery. The gallery is being relocated so this opportunity also marks the end of an era.

After the success of its first two sold-out events, Ritual returns to west London for a third instalment of outstanding electronic music. Injecting Chelsea with a healthy dose of house and electro, Ritual at Under The Bridge will see the legendary dance music duo X-Press 2 take to the decks. X-Press 2 are club culture royalty and house music pioneers who are cited as a key influence by all the major players riding the resurgent house music wave and they remain as relevant today as when they first appeared on the scene in 1992. X-Press 2 are joined by Norwegian ‘space-disco’ DJ and record producer Thomas Moen Hermansen who goes under the alias Prins Thomas and Leeds-based deep house DJ and producer Hot Since 82 who is one of the hottest names on the scene right now. Also appearing will be Balou & JDP and live electronic act Lumi as Ritual at Under The Bridge continues to bring electronic legends and future trail blazers to its west London home Under The Bridge.
Ritual at Under The Bridge is a monthly night from the team behind Tempo Tantrum and The Music League championing the best in electronic music, taking place at stylish and recently launched west London music venue Under the Bridge. Bringing forward-thinking line-ups to an area of London which has historically only catered for a mainstream crowd, Ritual is quickly becoming the rite of passage for any electronic music enthusiast, showcasing the best sounds across the electronic spectrum including house, techno, electro, breaks, funky, disco and bass.
Brought together by two ambitious females with a wealth of experience within the music industry, Ritual at Under The Bridge is described to be the night the East London party is moved to the West side of town. It is set to become an essential game-changer for the electronic music scene, combining the highest calibre of electronic artists with state of the art sound and visuals, in what will be an utterly unique and memorable clubbing experience.
Ritual 9pm- 3am

Tickets available via Resident Advisor or EventBrite. You can also follow Ritual on Facebook and Twitter.

Lindsey Bull’s third solo exhibition brings together an impressive series of delicate, small-scale paintings which address notions of disguise and transformation. Investigating the seen and the hidden, Lindsey Bull In Disguise runs from 2nd – 19th May at High House Gallery, Clanfield, Oxfordshire.
Bull paints in oil on canvas to present figures that are often masked, hooded or in some way concealed. They enact undefined movements, formed from abstract, undulating rhythms of the brush stroke. These are figures that are in flux, fleetingly tangible, yet at the same time abstracted and unknowable. They rest in a perpetual state of disguise.
Throughout her practice Bull explores these perceptions of reality and illusion, investigating fragmentary instances where the real merges with the fantastical. She draws upon a lexicon of imagery, from books on witchcraft and cults, to silent film stills and occult magazines, to explore a history of practices that shift the everyday into realms of spiritual, ritualistic or psychedelic perception.
Space also plays an important part in Bull’s paintings. Her figures are often enveloped by spaces that feel simultaneously familiar and unreal, sliding in to an abstract and undulating form that reflects the figure’s alternate state of perception.
Lindsey Bull In Disguise Exhibition runs Thu 2 to Sun 19th May 2013
Gallery hours: Thu to Sun: 11am – 5pm
High House, Main Street, Clanfield, Oxon OX18 2SH
