(Art) School’s out for the summer, so this week it’s all about the student degree shows. Get yourselves down to Wimbledon, the RA Schools, Camberwell, Central Saint Martins, the RCA and Chelsea College because the work is truly amazing, and well worth the time. On the art theme, the legendary Bold Tendencies sculpture project (and Frank’s Campari Bar) opens next wednesday 30 June on the top 3 floors of Peckham multi-story car park in Rye Lane, hosting an unparalleled view of not only the city itself, but a showcase of beautiful site-specific sculpture.
Student shows means student afterparties, so one for tonight is the Chelsea 10 Degree Show Afterparty at The City Arts and Music Project (C.A.M.P). Entrance is free, and music is provided by Oneman, Deadboy and DELS. Also East, Time Out‘s Live ‘Nite Sessions‘ are at East Village, with Riva Starr, Hannah Holland and SBTRKT. Tomorrow Joy Orbison and Floating Points play Plan B in Brixton, Legendary Children are at Questionmark Bar in Stoke Newington, and Fabric host Radio Slave.

Definitely worth your hard-earned cash this week is the new Rodion For Ever EP, fresh out on Gomma. Check the Timelords-style rolling beats on Hold On Rodion featuring vocals from Jeppe Kjellberg of WhoMadeWho, and Alagoas Cowboys has been bouncing around tracklists for the last couple of months. Very nice!
