Music & Entertainment with Joe Fuller
1 Holly Herndon experiments with the timings and textures of pop and electronic music in enveloping ways. ‘Chorus’ for example is a skittering, sparse but punchy track, opening with what sounds like separate ideas and fragments, which then coalesce into a more coherent work towards its conclusion. For any fan of electronic or innovative, forward-thinking music, this gig is an absolute must.
Attenborough Centre For The Creative Arts, 21 September, 8pm, £12-£17
2 Ryoji Ikeda uses mathematical models to generate music and projections, resulting in stunning audio visual shows. This performance (part of Brighton Digital Festival) is a great opportunity to see a talented visual artist in what is described as an “immersive club show”.
ACCA, 23 September, 8pm, £12-£17
3 The Colour Run sees a lot of people wearing white shirts get kaleidoscoped chock-full of colour, and then run around. This year will include a new cloud foam zone, unicorn mascots and a variety of new colour zones.
Madeira Drive, 23 September, 11am or 4pm, £10 to £28

Comedy with Victoria Nangle
5 Mark Watson is known for trying things a little out of the ordinary – this tour he’s directed by his initials and he’s visiting places that begin with either M or W – this time it’s Worthing (another will be on a ferry on the river Mersey!). He’ll be mixing up some classic comedy material with some newer ideas. Check out our interview with Mark online at tinyurl.com/y6v3f7kt.
Connaught Theatre, Worthing, Saturday 23 September, 8pm, £20/18.50
6 It’s been two years since The Bad Book Project first broke the spines of the most ridiculous tomes, so it’s marking the occasion with a ‘Flatmate From Hell’ themed special edition. Hosted by the award-nominated character comedian Jane Postlethwaite, joined by guest readers from the world of comedy and all round entertainment, this great idea keeps on giving.

Arts with Brighton’s Arty
7 This stunning seascape is ‘Sapphire and Umber’ by painter Leila Godden, and it’s just been selected for ING Discerning Eye Exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries in November. The calm colours and exciting mark-making are typical of Leila’s technique, enticing the viewer in with nuances that evoke personal memories and experiences. Leila will be featuring in Art in Brighton 2018 if you want to see more.
8 Also appearing in next year’s publication will be Naked Eye Gallery. If you haven’t discovered this treasure trove of local creative talent, head to 70 Western Road. You’ve still got time to catch the current exhibition by Chris Kettle, who constantly amazes with his reimagination of the age-old genre of still life painting.
