First Call

KULA SHAKER burst onto the music scene in May 1995. Their mix of angelic vocals and wailing guitars conjured up images of late-1960s psychedelia, but despite their well- received debut album, the band - Crispian Mills (right), Paul Winterhart, Jay Darlington and Alonza Bevan - have since been surprisingly quiet. However, that is about to change as they have a new album due for UK release in March and are planning an extensive tour.

108 Club, 100 Oxford Street, London W1 (0171-734 8932). 2-5 Mar

Last Call

PETER HALL'S season at the Piccadilly Theatre comes to an end with Kafka's Dick. Alan Bennett's 1986 farce starts with Kafka's editor deciding to ignore the depressive Czech playwright's wishes that his manuscripts be burnt. In keeping with the spirit of Kafkaesque surrealism, the playwright comes back to life as a tortoise in a house filled with his works, which is inhabited by a senile old man, a dejected housewife and an earnest fan. With John Gordon Sinclair, Julia McKenzie and Eric Sykes.

Piccadilly Theatre, Denman Street, London W1 (0171-369 1734) to 26 Feb
