What’s on tonight: Friday, February 5

05th Feb 2021

In need of ideas on how to spend your evening? A new podcast goes behind the scenes of a Condé Naste Scandal, a live-streamed concert and a new period drama.

Wondering what to do with yourself this evening? Gimlet has launched a mini-series that dives into the accusations of racism and toxic environment of Bon Appétit’s Test Kitchen, The Staves are celebrating their new album launch with a live-streamed gig and Spike Lee’s Civil Rights era biopic lands on streaming sites.

ATTEND
The Staves’ Good Woman Live Stream


These three sisters from Watford are back with a heavenly new album. It’s their first release since 2017’s The Way is Read and the sudden passing of their mother in 2018. Entitled Good Woman the soulful trio are performing a live concert that spans their entire discography to celebrate this evening, streamed straight from LaFayette in London.

Tickets are €13.50 and it includes a Q&A afterparty and it all kicks off from 9pm.

LISTEN
The Test Kitchen, Gimlet

From Gimlet’s Reply-All comes this mini-series is centred around Bon Appétit’s online reckoning after a series of former employees called their test kitchen (one of the most successful parts of the Bon App empire) was a racist and toxic work environment.

The first episode is already wherever you get your podcasts.

WATCH
Son of the South, Google Play


The big launch of today is Malcolm & Marie on Netflix, but it’s not the only thing worth watching this evening.

Set in 1960s Alabama, this film follows the story of a white college student who comes of age in the Deep South and eventually joins the Civil Rights Movement. The trailer has a smack of white saviour about it, but produced by Spike Lee and based on the memoir of Bob Zellner, the son and grandson of Ku Klux Klan members, it scores a high 7.4 rating on IMBD.

You can rent it on Google Play for €5.99 from today.
