Freaky Friday

So London's big gig of this week was A Night with Pete Doherty at Hackney Empire. Is it just me or is he looking less like Cherie and more like Kate in drag these days? And for pete's sake (sorry), why hasn't Freddy Krueger rung him up and asked for his clothes back? Surely, now that Pete's engaged to TopShop's hottest designer he has no excuse? But then again he is a wack job.

But enough freakiness for this Friday the 13th. Let's get out and enjoy London's 24°C weather, armed with the 30th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."

1) Do you admire Red Ken's ability to link gangsta rap and Margaret Thatcher in the same sentence? React in kind by learning how to link music, film, fashion and art with one word: camouflage. It has impacted far beyond the battlefield. Imperial War Museum, SE1. 10am-6pm Sat-Sun, £7.

2) Relieved that the threatened three-day tube strike has been called off? Celebrate with Coco Rosie - the part folk, part electronic, part nutty pop but spookily powerful band of two sisters. They are good. Catch them before they disappear to be lesbian welders in New Mexico. Shepherd's Bush Empire, W12. Sun 7PM. £15

3) Is next week's opening of "New York Fashion Now" at the V&A leaving you wondering if the idea shouldn't be more about getting clothes on living bodies before they end up on mannequins? React by heading to the London Vintage Fashion, Textiles and Accessories Fashion Fair. Hammersmith Town Hall, King St, W6. Sun 8am-5pm. £5.

What is with that New York fashion exhibit? First Kylie now this stupidity. It seems as though the V&A has lost its way a bit...?
