Of Naked Design Showcase

Tomorrow night sees two of London's more leftfield and experimental institutions coming together for what's being billed as "an evening of evocative and evolutionary music, film and poetry."

The the Diorama Arts centre has been at the centre of London's experimental arts scene since the 70s (Derek Jarman and Elvis Costello being just two of its more notable alumni), and tomorrow night they are playing host to one of the capital's truly alternative record labels: Of Naked Design.

The label, which "places emphasis on ensuring a future for artists of expansive vision and creative endeavour", is home to artists such as Gina Birch (ex of The Raincoats), progressive punk pioneer Side-Show (aka Russell Tams), rising alt-folk star Katy Carr (pictured), and "Avant-Folk songsters" (their description, not ours) The Irrepressibles.

All these artists will be showcased tomorrow night at the Diorama's Black Box Theatre, alongside a number of film and video screenings.

The event is free but there will be "a hat passed around seeking contributions" and there's even the promise of "cakes and refreshments" in order to entice the wary.

Event begins at 8, with doors at 7:30. Diorama is at 34 Osnaburgh St, tel: 020 7916 5467.
