Your chance to jam with Jarvis

From today until Thursday, ex-Pulp front man (are we OK to drop that now?) Jarvis Cocker will be holding a casual exhibition and musical improvisation session at Village Underground in East London. If you bring your own instrument — spoons, cor anglais, whatever — you can even join in, at your peril.

Cocker has attempted a similar feat before — in Paris in May (see video above) — where live musicians occupied an art gallery and were joined at various points by local kids and enthusiasts, who — bizarrely enough — provided the soundtrack to pilates, yoga and aerobics classes in the space. The London version has a slightly grittier flavour: today's class will be pole-dancing, so if you've always wanted to perform a Chinese Superman (look it up) to the strains of "Common People", now's your chance.  

The event will culminate in a concert at Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London EC2 on Thursday at 9pm. Tickets cost £30 and are available to buy here. Alternatively, follow daily proceedings live at www.jarviscocker.net
