So another week another weekend looming into view, and this one it has to be said seems highly promising. For on friday the 13th, whilst the majority of the nation scrambles to defy the mysteries of the credit crunch by driving Red Nose Day (insert number here) to record donations Notion Magazine have chosen to have a new issue launch party at Hoxton Hall. Not only this but they have decided to grace us with Esser and a free bar to sweeten the deal.

Cutting a singular figure in shrink-wrapped, science club chic, topped off with serious glasses and far more serious hair, Josh is here tonight as part of the cooler than fuck Twisted Licks nights series that holds residence at the Macbeth. He’s been paired with one man electrofolk orchestra and Moshi Moshi star, James Yuill.
