Whats new?

A few things actually...

As you can see from the last post I have just finished sorting out the Dj's and the flier for the next Pork & Beans which should be good (judging from the last one):

Also just booked my tickets to see Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings at KoKo on the 14th of April so well chuffed with that, fucking love her!

Next week is sure to be a good one as well, on the Thursday the launch party for the exhibition I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in, "The New Faces" takes place. And no this is not obvious self-promotion! But yeah should be good, great Dj's playing, hopefully free booze and staring at a blown up picture of myself... Anyway check out the facebook group for details...

On the Friday its Boom Shaka Lacka (always good):

And on the Saturday, Me and her Highness Kels are spinning tunes at Shake! at the Boogaloo in Highgate:

Eh nice!

Early warning...

I meant to write this up here along time ago but have been to tired or drunk after work to be bothered to do so. Anyway on the 27th of Jan I hobbled down to the 100 club to see Imelda May. Usually I am not the biggest fan of Rockabilly, but she is really something special! Big Boy Bloater warmed everyone up by playing some ace R&B and Blues covers, including getting everyone messily singing along to "Mojo Working" and then Imelda took the stage, going through all of her big tunes like "Love Tattoo" and "Big Bad Handsome Man". The best showcase for her voice was slower tunes suck as "Knock 123", which is much more of a soul ballad - top stuff! Unfortunately she didn't do her version of "Voodoo Working" but I enjoyed every tune, plus she is fucking stunning!

That is two artists on my list crossed off, now just gotta see Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (just announced a European tour?) and the Five Aces. Sweet!

And now for something mildly amusing, me on a fashion blog, ho ho ho:

Writing all of this while listening to the best:
