Take a tour to see giant rabbits and stoats, small girls holding balloons, bubble headed stick men, massive teeth and space invaders… all painted, pasted, created and put up on London’s concrete surfaces. These impressive images capture the renegade artistic nature of the infinitely vibrant east London art scene. With artists such as Eine, Invader, Banksy, David Walker, Roa, C215, Connor Harrington, D-Face, Stik and Swoon, it’s well worth the trek.

This is what some Londoner called Oliver had to say about the tour…

“I love walking around London looking for street art and although I think I know a fair deal about the subject, it was a real treat to discover new artists and to be taken to new places by someone who obviously loves what he does and knows what he’s talking about.  I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone with any interest in street art!”
Olivier, from London

Party: Hackney SOCIETY Warehouse Party

When: Friday 1st July 2011

Where: Secret location to be revealed! (probably Shoreditch)

The good folks of We Are Not A Rockband are bringing a (packed full of old skool flava) taste of Chicago led acid house to Hackney in the form of SOCIETY’s second outing. Following on from the success of the London bloggers’ last rave at Metalworks, Islington, they are hosting this summer party – guaranteed to aurally stimulate visions of late 80’s, early 90’s house for those that remember and some stunning new sounds for those that don’t. Legendary DJ Marshall Jefferson will be the star alongside more renowned acid house DJs and of course the We Are Not A Rockband DJs.

WANARB say this… 

“It really doesn’t get much more influential than Marshall Jefferson. Only a few people on this planet have been offered the title ‘Godfather of House’, and one stands out from the crowd as being the man that defined house music, and indeed dance music as we know it today. His name is Marshall Jefferson. In 1986 he played piano on a house record for the first time ever; the track was called “Move Your Body” and it single-handedly redefined dance music forever.”

The last rave was awesome – old and young coming together with one thing in mind, to party like it was 1989. Most of the early and discounted tickets have sold out, so get online and buy them HERE for a tenner before ticket prices go up on the night!

The line-up will be revealed nearer the time at http://societywarehouse.com/

Street Art: DONK!

This Weekend: Penguin Prison

Actually, this post turned out to be totally false, but i’ll leave the song up!

This Thursday (nearly the weekend!), Penguin Prison bring their debut to London as a live showcase at The Old Blue Last, Great Eastern Street. I love this track – “A Funny Thing” – so should be pretty good. Looking forward to it and will be posting some pictures up on Friday.
