Bitcoin, Ethereum and the future of digital currency

Bitcoin and Ethereum have been in the news a lot recently due to spectacular price rises.

* What a blockchain is and what it means for society
* The key differences between Bitcoin and Ethereum
* How to buy, sell and store digital currency

LDN Talks: Interviews with a Serial Killer

Info & tickets: http://bit.ly/2mZEWOW
Venue: Amersham Arms, Peckham
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

One of the first British policemen to work closely with the FBI Behavioural Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia, he has interviewed over 70 of the world’s worst serial killers and mass murderers to gain insight into their psyche.

Join Paul, to hear some of the more controversial conversations he had with Britain’s and the World’s most terrifying killers. Hear why the Yorkshire Ripper was ‘scared’ of him. Learn, what drove Robert Maudsley, the UK’s real life hannibal lechter, to kill, and why he’s kept in an ‘all glass’ cell. The Amityville Murders; what Ronald DeFeo said to be fearful of, when Paul spent the night at the house of horror.

This is a truly eyeopening and entertaining talk, that covers twelve stories and interviews. Accompanied by a visual presentation, covering the history of the individual crimes, and the killers story in their own words. Sad, frightening, and at times, funny, hear how serial killers perceive themselves, their victims, and their actions.

Paul is regarded as an expert on serial killer profiling. As a consultant on the subject, he regularly works with; authors, and film and television production companies. He is author of 34 books, mainly true crime.

He has recently had published his first crime fiction novel, Revenge of The Malakim, book one of the Grooming Parlour trilogy.

‘Walking with the Dead’ gives a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the dark reality of the mind of a serial killer.

Festive Talks: The Therapeutic Potential of Magic Mushrooms

Info & tickets: http://bit.ly/2AD09l7
Venue: Amersham Arms, New Cross
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

Hallucinogenic drugs in a hospital clinic? Tripping as treatment? 

Scientists at some of the world's most prestigious universities are studying single psychedelic therapy sessions to treat severe mental health conditions. Initial results suggesting mushrooms can bring immediate and long-lasting relief have captured headlines worldwide. But what do these mushroom sessions consist of and how do they work? A psychologist and participant from the ‘Psilocybin for depression study’ at Imperial College take you step by step through the psychedelic treatment journey. You will learn about the history of psychedelics as treatments for mental distress, the current research studies, the content of sessions, and what participants say about how this unique intervention changed their lives.

Dr Rosalind Watts is a clinical psychologist in the Psychedelic Research Group at Imperial College (led by Robin Carhart-Harris), where the first modern study looking at psilocybin as a treatment for depression took place. 
Rosalind was a "trip-sitter" for participants in this study, and has published research exploring participant accounts of the impact of psilocybin, focusing on the theme of 'increased connection to self, others, and the world'. She is now developing training for therapists in the upcoming psilocybin study at Imperial, and pondering on the potential of psychedelics to help heal a disconnected world.

Moon: a Work-In-Progress (feat. Good Kids + Yuriko Kotani)

FREE COMEDY FREE LAUGHS

Season’s Greetings, London! Sketchwriting children of the regional backwaters MOON are doing a work-in-progress. 

Following their virgin voyage trawling trendy comedy clubland, the M6's favourite sons turn their gaze to that Moby Dick of showbusiness, AN ACTUAL SHOW D: O:

To hammer this into relief like the blacksmith ancestors they sometimes claim to have, they're coming south of the river to the AMERSHAM ARMS, where they can dignify sketches about quiz shows and oil rigs with oodles of New Cross Cool. Yes, much of the interior decor there has been DELIBERATELY DISTRESSED.

Ladies and Gentleman, Jack and Josh are proud to present a Moon WIP. And they're not alone...

YURIKO KOTANI is a UK-based Japanese comedian who has had tongues wagging since her triumph at the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2015. Very much one of the hottest damn comics on the scene, and will be previewing some of her good new stuff.

Brummie Bad Boys GOOD KIDS will also be joining the party via the Virgin Trains service to Euston, and probably after that the Northern Line to London Bridge, where they'll be getting the Southern Rail service to New Cross. These keen comedy raconteurs will bring us tales of the Midlands, home of Shakespeare and Jamelia, who once came to speak at Josh's school so there's added poignance there. 

ENTRY WILL BE FREE and THE BAR WILL BE CHEAP (for London)

Stay tuned. Up the Villa, and the Toffeemen.

O Anna O, Zepher, Sophie Milne, The Diomedes, Linerunners, The Subliminal Kittens, Rattlesnake

Sack off that office Christmas party and get down to the Amersham Arms this December!

Topping the evening’s bill is O Anna O. This four piece from London who combine driven garage guitars, neurotic vocal lines, surf and Brit pop lightness and neo psychedelic introspection. Quite a heady mix, and a mix that has seen them turn heads all over the Capital.

Joining us from Bristol for the show is Zepher, an indie rock ‘n’ roll band whose infectious sound has seen them get some great reviews, including this little gem from BBC Radio Wales, “Empassioned voices and guitars united in musical excellence”.

Sophie Milne will be joining us with her live backing band for the evening. Sophie’s catchy pop rock sound has seen her gain a loyal following in her native Hertfordshire, and now she’s ready to show the Capital what she’s made of.

Alt/rock duo, The Diomedes will be bringing their alternative indie rock sound to the stage. This sound has not only been gaining them slots at some of London’s best underground venues, but also some great reviews!

Hereford based Linerunners are a fast and furious garage rock band, whose sound I raw and filled with passion and energy. Their sound continues to evolve, so we’re excited to see what they do next!

Garage rock band, The Subliminal Kittens will be bringing their upbeat sound to the stage for the evening. Expect tons of energy and rough and ready rock.

Opening the show is Rattlesnake. This Kent based outfit will be playing a very special and exclusive stripped back set on the night, so it’s not to be missed!
