It took a little while, but their experimental melodies have in fact brought them concert halls full of fans. Over the last three years in particular, during an endless touring schedule that has taken them around the world, Maybeshewill has also managed to produce three studio albums, flicking them onto the world stage. Never heard of them? Maybe it’s time to get acquainted. Admission is 120hrv. For more information call 067-538-8175.

Better than a New Pair of Shoes Aldo Opening Night, Aldo Flirt Club (Milyutenko 7)

17 September at 22.00 There’s no better time than the beginning of a new season to start a new project, which seems to be what club promoters here in Kyiv are thinking, especially with the opening of yet another club. Other than a quick DJ lineup, consisting of DJ Katya Tsaryova, DJ Tommy Slim and DJ Jerry Mousse, we can’t get much out of organisers over at Aldo. But maybe that’s a good sign. It means that there are tonnes of surprises coming your way, lending itself to a very good night out! Entrance is free before 00.00, after call and check. For more information call 067-5366565.

Master Class Lending a Hand Yulia is actually a friend of mine and has been busy with crafts of all sorts for quite some time. Her internet shop of handmade goods gets a lot of hits, and she’s found that once someone has made one purchase, they often return. Popping round for a visit and our very own master class, we are directed to her workshop, Murushki, where we’ll be going home with bracelets (which I’m sure will be lovely but will be passed on to some girl of my acquaintance) and candlestick holders (those I might keep for myself). Beginning with the bracelet, Yulia says it’s a nice easy item to start off with and is something everyone can do. What you’re going to need: * 1 round wooden/plastic base * 1-metre piece of lace (any colour) * needle and thread (same colour as your chosen lace) * scissors While we’re not sure why you wouldn’t have scissors, all other items can be found in craft supply shops around the city for a very reasonable price. Or, take one of your old bracelets and give it a second life! The one thing you’ll need to ensure here is that it is a solid piece of either wood or plastic. “One of the great things about making not only your own jewellery, but anything is that you can take things that you have lying around at home and turn them into something you can use. I would suggest you take a look around your home or apartment: I can assure you you’ll find lots of things you don’t really need or use but don’t want to throw away. Experiment with these items, and you might find that you’ll turn these eyesores into things you will use again.”

Be Your Own Handmade Hipster

The television show How Things Are Made is great for all your questions about how things are made! In this particular issue of What’s On, however, we hope to keep you fixed and focused not on your television sets but on us! Not only have we got the goods on how bracelets and candlestick holders are made, we’re going to show you how to do it yourself!

H

ere in Ukraine especially, we constantly come across things that are made by the hands of others. Ukrainian handmade items often receive praise and acknowledgment both far and wide. Most often more affordable and definitely more individual than mass-produced items, handmade has hooked our country making way for many-a handicraft shop especially here in Kyiv. In fact, Shtuki is an annual exhibition of handmade items, and recently held in the Lavra Gallery aptly demonstrates just how the number of skilled craftspeople is on the increase. Good for them, good for us, good for the economy, we get together with Yulia Gunko, a master crafter, who’s going to show us how to make ourselves and our digs much more attractive.

Playing for over 40 years, Jackson has been part of more than 3000 recording sessions which were then transformed into over 500 albums.

Their seventh studio album and most recent is entitled 7th Symphony, and has been hailed their greatest masterpiece yet! Tickets are 250 – 700hrv. For more information call 246-7406.

Gen X Music Maker IAMX (UK, electronic), Crystal Hall (Dniprovskiy Spusk 1)

22 October at 19.00 IAMX is the solo music project of Chris Corner, formerly of the Sneaker Pimps. Whether you were a fan of the band or not, Corner is his own man playing electronic and indie to lyrics that are often highly controversial. Performing, producing, mixing and mastering all of his albums himself, this guy is more than just a one man band accompanied by a live lineup wherever he happens to be performing. His fourth studio album has come out just this year and has held onto that cabaret-esque and dark electronic sound Corner is known for. Tickets are 450hrv. For more information call 288-5069.

From December 1 The M17 gallery is presenting a project called No Art, and allows for the manifestation of each and every person to himself be-

come an artist in front of a blank canvas. The gallery warns, however, that you should not expect an exhibition of white walls.

30 September at 23.30 Producer, composer, artist and creator of the electronic tango group the Gotan Project, Philippe Cohen Solal will be treating Kyiv to a DJ set after their big show at Palace Ukraine.

15 November at 19.00

6 October at 19.30

23 November at 19.00

Because of his marvellous voice, which follows the traditional jazz school, Kurt Elling is typically called the unofficial heir of Frank Sinatra. Winning a Grammy in 2009 for Best Vocal Jazz Album called Dedicated to You, Down Beat magazine has also named him Best Male Vocal of the Year twelve times! And lucky for us, accompanied by the beautiful violinist Assia Ahhatt and talented bassist Ihor Zakus, Elling will be headlining the Do#Djo Festival in Kyiv this October. Tickets are 150 – 1500hrv. For more information call 279-1582.

Antonio Gades, an outstanding flamenco dancer, and his ballet have been busy advancing the genre of flamenco through their latest stage creation, Carmen.

With a cast of 25, this Carmen presents a story that has fused together three areas of the arts making this show something you won’t see just anywhere. Tickets are 80 – 1500hrv. For more information call 247-2316.

New by Todes Ballet (Russia), Palace Ukraine (V Vasylkivska 103) The Todes Ballet is one of the most well-known modern dance companies from around these parts, whose history reaches back to 1987. It was the brilliant Alla Dukhova who created the group and hooking up with local pop stars for many of their concerts, their popularity took off! With those almost 25 years having flown by, not much has changed: they still dance the pants off any contemporary group in the vicinity and continue to dance to enthused audiences wherever they go. Coming to Kyiv with their newest programme called New, they promise to surprise you! Tickets are 50 – 800hrv. For more information call 247-2316.

16 October at 18.00 True master of the mic, Noize MC will be here this October, playing a long-awaited concert to crazy Kyiv clubbers. Full of painfully sentimental lyrics paired up with music from the streets, this boy from the would-be Bronx (or rather Yartsevo, Russia) is often controversially accurate. While the cops may not like him, he says it like it is, and you can’t blame him for that. Tickets are 170 – 250hrv. For more information call 424-2555

The New Era Orchestra is an academic professional group of musicians who have found success without financial support from the government. The reason? Their innovative spirit and affinity for all music. Performing from a wide repertoire that ranges from Bach to jazz, their concerts are always wellattended. This evening will be no exception as Ukraine’s very own modern composer Zoltan Almashi will be taking the lead. A new season of classical music is at your fingertips, and this evening promises to be full of surprises; regardless of the fact that ‘classical’ and ‘surprises’ don’t often go together. Tickets are 50hrv. For more information call 594-1062

The Most Beautiful Girl in Ukraine

Marcel Desailly relating how he was chosen to sit on the jury

PALACE UKRAINE On 11 September, Ukraine admirably demonstrated the beauty of our country in the competition for Miss Ukraine 2011. Getting some top names together to join the jury, we had socialite Paris Hilton, Miss World 2003 Rosana Davidson, actor Jean Claude Van Damme and French footballer Marcel Desailly in town. The evening was full of tough decisions and a bit of calamity as Paris Hilton and our own Slavic blonde bombshell, Russian host Kseniya Sobchak, got a bit confused about who the actual winner was. Naming a different girl completely, the two blondes quickly corrected themselves, and called Miss Vinnytsya Yaroslava Kuryacha up to the stage where she was given the title and crowned Miss Ukraine 2011.

NAMU On 9 September, the National Art Museum of Ukraine held an opening for the exhibition called Hnylytskiy. Cadavre Exquis. Hnylytskiy was a pretty big name in the Ukrainian art sphere, and created thoughtprovoking masterpieces right up until his sudden death in 2009. Dedicated to his 50th birthday, this latest exhibition covers 30 years of the artist’s work. Many gathered to commemorate the occasion, and honour a man whose history is unmistakably intertwined with the history of contemporary art in Ukraine. The exhibition is open 23 October – check it out.

HYATT Celebrating its 9th year in operation, The Ukrainian Connoisseur’s Club hosted the first gathering of likeminded gourmand members this season at the Hyatt’s Grill Asia on 8 September. With 45 participants, this was the second-largest event in the organisation’s history. But as dinner, drinks and a splash in their pool were all included, who wouldn’t have wanted to be there..? Dinner, as one can always be assured at this 5-star venue, was of course, superb. As was the interaction between many of Kyiv’s foreign family. Thinking you’d like to take part? There’s a new restaurant each month. All you need to do is get in touch with TUCC president, Terry Pickard.
