Word in Your Ear
This just in:
The Word Magazine spirit lives on in Word In Your Ear events, promoted by the magazine's David Hepworth and Alex Gold.
The December show at the Lexington, which featured music from Skinny Lister and The Dunwells, plus conversation from Danny Baker, was hailed as a great success by everyone who came.
The next, which takes place on March 18th, promises to be even better. "There are lots of places in London offering music. There are a few places offering speech. We want to lead the way in putting on both in one evening. That's why we're lining up great talkers as well as great players. In future they may be both," says David Hepworth.
The next Word In Your Ear is on Monday, March 18th at the Old Queen's Head on Essex Road, Islington (right). "We're delighted to put on a show here because there's more seating and we can use their audio-visual system. Halfway between Angel tube and the railway station at Essex Road, it's easy to get to.

The opening "act" will be Mark Ellen and the aforementioned David Hepworth, in their first public outing together since the demise of the lamented Word podcast. They will be presenting an extract from "Mark Ellen and David Hepworth's One-Man Show" in which they list and re-live their Most Disastrous Encounters With Rock Stars.
