Bet you didn't know that Maxine Peak – her off telly, including 'Shameless' – was also a fan of avant-garde electronica, did you? Well she is and she's singing with the mysterious Eccentronic Research Council at this event celebrating 100 years of electronic music (based on the publication date of a musical manifesto by Italian painter and composer Luigi Russolo, who designed what could have been the first synthesiser) organised by creative collective Noise of Art. It's a fascinating and wide-ranging event, also taking in DJ sets from acclaimed psychedelic house producer Justin Robertson, in his Deadstock 33s guise, Severino from Horse Meat Disco, synth-popper Fil OK and many more, with the vague premise that the DJs on hand will represent various seminal London club-nights at the start of the 21st century. There's a lot of concepts being batted around here, but you don't have to worry about them too much if you don't want to – just enjoy some prime experimental electronic sounds and a few killer DJ sets to boot. Just don't start yelling 'Shameless' catchphrases when Maxine's performing, especially not "Pint and two Es please, Karen".
