You could win one of ten pairs of tickets to the sold out 'Atomic Bomb: Who is William Onyeabor?' at the Barbican. The event takes place on April 1 and sees the likes of Damon Albarn, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party) and Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem) celebrating the work of the Nigerian synth-pioneer.
William Onyeabor is the great synth pioneer who self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in South-Eastern Nigeria. Only recently have musicians and audiences been waking up to Onyeabor’s formidable force, after Luaka Bop, the label founded by David Byrne, tracked down the man.

Thousand Island is a new self-contained music venue and late, late night club, in what used to be Upstairs at The Garage on Highbury Corner. Following a recent refurb, The Garage – a live music venue that’s been hosting major gigs since 1993 – is now hosting up-and-coming artists, as well as club nights in its intimate, upstairs space (with added mirrorballs on the ceiling). And it's within easy reach of Highbury & Islington station for when you need to stagger home on the night tube.
