Stornoway, The Forum, London

Stornoway are a four-piece band from Oxford who, with two extra live players tonight, make uplifting folky-indie - although taking their name from a remote Scottish isle is apt given their evident love nature, of the most wind-swept, moon-lit variety.

The Week In Radio: Radio 3 needs an audience beyond this tiny elite

Is classical music really for everyone? This was the question posed by the writer and presenter Tom Service, chair of a live debate at the Sage in Gateshead as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking festival, to which the answer is: if only. Classical music is as much for everyone as quilted outdoor clothing, nannies, shopping at Waitrose and restaurant food that has been "pan-fried" rather than fried in a pan. A person's exposure to it depends on their education, financial status, parental influence and social class. Musical taste barely comes into it.

Festivals: Why stage a dirty protest when you can just tune out?

It's not the first time a musician has been pelted with something while performing on stage and it certainly won't be the last. But even Cher Lloyd's biggest detractors must have felt sorry for the singer after a bottle of urine was thrown at her while she performed at the V Festival in Hylands Park, Chelmsford this weekend. The former X Factor contestant was only on her second song when she was hit, causing her to flee the stage. Being a festival with four main arenas, it's a shame the unhappy reveller didn't, you know, just go and watch something else.

Diary: Luvvie and hate

That fine actor David Suchet has complained to The Stage newspaper that the use of the word "luvvie" to describe him and his fellow air-kissing thesps is "the worst thing that ever happened to our profession". Frankly, I thought swingeing cuts to the arts budget, or perhaps Michael Bay, might be considered more damaging to the actor's cause than a word that Wikipedia categorises as an "affectionate term" (and which I presumed had fallen out of usage in about 1976). But Suchet, currently appearing in Arthur Miller's All My Sons in the West End, is adamant: "The role of an actor in America, eastern Europe and western Europe – everywhere apart from this country – is considered a very serious job and a very necessary function. Here we are just luvvies, which is a great shame." Martin Brown, assistant general secretary of the actors union Equity, told our reporter that a number of notable performers have come to him in the past, terribly concerned by the prevalence of the term. Haven't they better things to do? Their make-up, maybe?

Cultural Life: Lethal Bizzle, rapper

I like Calvin Harris's album 'Ready for the Weekend'. It's a party from start to finish – a total disco record. David Guetta's song "Sexy Chick" is brilliant, too. I've been listening to some old-school acid house, too.

From 'hood to boardroom: Would you take career advice from George Bush

Get Motivated!" is plastered in large yellow letters at the top of a garishly-designed website. Below this powerful call to arms are various toothy mug shots of motivational speakers. They are all due to appear at a forthcoming seminar for businessmen in Fort Worth, Texas. A sports star here, a bestselling author there, and...hang on – didn't that guy used to be President?
