I had a great time at my first In The Dark Radio. It's a listening party for some of the most creative, innovative, and mystical audio pieces. London has lots of film nights but audio is less well served. It's really worth joining the mailing list as their events sell out quickly. And they have sweet mugs... Below is a sample of my favourite pieces from the night, all worth bookmarking
