Frunch at the Bad EggRhythm Section at Bussey Building
The Bad Egg are making Fridays even better with their new Frunch menu. Pick from unlimited frozen margs, prosecco or mimosas, a main dish from their seriously indulgent brunch menu, and a side. Don’t even try going for the healthy option here, even the salad has fried chicken on it. Bradley Zero and co return to Peckham’s Bussey Building after a stint at Corsica Studios. Australian producer DJ Prequel, RUF KUTZ boss Ruf Dug and Rhythm Section resident Z Lovecraft are all set to the hit the decks, and we’ve been told the dress code is dress to sweat.

Printworks Issue 002 Music Series
After their incredible launch series which included Paul Kalkbrenner, Daphni, Booka Shade and Motor City Drum Ensemble, Printworks have just announced that their second music series will run for 10 weeks from October-December this year.
The first series sold out in a flash, so head here to sign-up and be the first to receive lineup details and access to tickets.
Love Happens Here ExhibitionThe Tempest at the Barbican
Carry on the Pride celebrations this weekend with a trip to the specially-curated Love Happens Here exhibition, which documents the 50th anniversary of decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK. From photographs of early Pride marches to Reggie Blennerhassett’s shots from inside the Lesbian and Gay Centre, it’s one not to be missed. In need of a culture injection? You know a performance of one of the Bard’s most iconic plays at the Barbican is going to be good, so get booking because this one’s going to be busy. The Royal Shakespeare Company have teamed up with Intel to create a bold reimagining of Prospero’s tale, more suited to younger audiences.

Defected Records x UJ: Eastern Electrics
Ahead of curating their own stage at August 5th’s Eastern Electrics (and their own festival in Croatia with Basement Jaxx, MK and Todd Terry), UK house giants Defected Records have put together a playlist for us to kick start your weekend. Expect house in all forms from their roster, including Sam Divine, Jacky and Karizma.

Citadel FestivalW.A Green
Bonobo live, classes by Frame and food by Bubbledogs all in one festival? #UJLoves. If there’s one way to banish the Monday dread, it’s a Sunday daytime party, and Citadel is just that. Other lineup highlights include Sylvan Esso, Wild Beasts and Laura Marling; it’s going to be a chilled Sunday. Move over Goodhood, there’s a new lifestyle shop in Shoreditch for us to rifle through on the weekend. W.A Green stocks some of the most Instagrammable pieces we’ve seen, from Group Partner’s tongue-in-cheek pots to Bella Freud’s catchy slogans via Keith Haring. Go, your feed will thank us.
