It’s Gonna Be Alright With Clark

It was a sad day this previous Thursday, as we all sat back to watch the finale of How Not To Live Your Life. Not only did Clark bring us an hour long Christmas special, the episode was a tour-de-force with laughs, tears and cringe-worthy moments galore (as in full Danbury spirit). We at TVO [...]

Booshniverse Buzzing With Royal Fever

You may have noticed that the last 48 hours have been unusual for The Velvet Onion: there has been no news. Our lack of news coverage wasn’t in deference to any wedding – no, there was no news because the people we write about appeared to be glued to their TVs instead of creating news [...]

Dan Clark And The Purple Cow

This weekend saw Dan Clark headline at London’s Udderbelly. TVO was on hand, and this is the result… It’s quite something to be able to say that you went to a gig where the venue was in the shape of a giant, upside-down, purple cow. I have to hand it to E4 for going all out at the [...]
