We love weekends

Variety is spicing up Hackney this weekend so pick and mix from a performance of stand up and tragedy; hip hop turning up the volume on human rights; and a historical legend given a modern twist.

Stand Up Tragedy at Hackney Picturehouse, Mare Street

They’ll make you sad; they’ll make you think; they’ll make you smile. The attic at Hackney Picturehouse brings you an evening of entertainment: people stand up and tell tragedy through music, comedy, fiction, spoken word, true stories and more. The night ends with a cathartic sing-a-long. Friday, 18 January

Hip-hop at Rich Mix cinema, Bethnal Green Road

Restless Beings presents its third underground hip-hop gig at Rich Mix. DJ Snuff brings you a fusion of hip-hop beats, in an event that turns up the volume on human rights abuses across the world. There will be an open mic session for up and coming artists with the chance to win studio time, a photo-shoot, a music video and the commercial release of your winning single. Saturday, 19 January
