      Plans to hold a two-day festival marking the publication of THE WIRE's
      250th issue have had to be postponed. However, two concerts that were
      due to be part of the festival will still be going ahead: Sunburned Hand
      Of The Man (8 December) and Text Of Light (9 December), both at The
      Spitz venue in East London.

      *go to http://spitz.co.uk

      Hydra-headed package tour featuring three units peddling the finest in
      revenant avant folk forms. The MV & EE Medicine Show is Matt Valentine
      and Erika Elder; Taurpis Tula is Heather Leigh Murray (Charalambides,
      Scorces) and The Wire's very own David Keenan; Samara Lubelski is an
      original member of Tower Recordings. Dates: Glasgow Stereo, Kelvinhaugh
      Street, 13 December; Leeds The Fenton, Woodhouse Lane (w/ Vibracathedral
      Orchestra), 14 December; Brighton Marlborough Theatre, Princes Street

      Portland Street, 20 December

      The Sounds of Christmas is an annual project by Christian Marclay,
      pioneer of the experimental turntable movement and leading artist
      operating at the intersections of art and music. Reinventing this
      work-in-progress for London, Marclay will present his collection of over
      1,200 Christmas records as a publicly accessible archive, alongside
      projections of the record covers and footage of previous performances.
      On Friday and Saturday evenings, noted turntablists and DJs will create
      live remixes of their own selection from Marclay's Christmas records.
      These recorded performances will create a soundtrack for the space.
      Combining blatant sentimentality with vanguard experimentation, Marclay
      suggests that the categories distinguishing 'serious' music from its
      opposite are both arbitrary and arcane.

      10-22 December 2004, Tate Modern, North Lawn, 10.00-18.00
      Sunday-Thursday, 10.00-22.00 Friday-Saturday, £8 (£6 concessions)

      Admission to the exhibition is free, but booking required for live
      performances. To receive a full listing of performances please email
