See Baba Brinkman's "Rap Guide to Evolution" live in London

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Canadian rapper Baba Brinkman, the man behind the fantastic rationalist anthem Off That (which has now passed 21,000 views on YouTube), is coming to London to perform his Rap Guide to Evolution at the Greenwich Theatre on 26 April. Tickets are £10 on the theatre webiste, but you might like to take advantage of a special offer price of £5 available through the Evening Standard.

Baba rocked audiences at our Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows with a few snippets from the Rap Guide to Evolution, so if you liked that then this is a great chance to catch the full show – it was originally commissioned by Birmingham University microbiologist and Rough Guide to Evolution author Dr Mark Pallen, who subsequently vetted the script, making it, as Baba joked at Nine Lessons, the first rap show to be peer reviewed. If you haven't seen Nine Lessons, here's a video of Baba performing one of the tracks, "Peformance Feedback Revision", at the Hammersmith Apollo last December:
