Alessi's Ark (pictured above) has announced details of an exhibition of her drawings in London. Taking place at Riverside Gallery in Hammersmith it launches on the 5th August and runs to the 6th September.
For a while now Benicassim was the festival you went too because you were guaranteed great weather. Seems like the tables were turned this weekend as the extreme wind caused bands like the Kings of Leon to pull out. Also a fire broke out, which is never a good thing. Check this video out!

Last week a blogger who leaked a Guns N Roses song was slapped with a two month home detention. Not only that but the poor man has been ordered to appear in an anti-piracy commercial!
I really do dislike Guns N' Roses.
