Last week’s Stop Showin’ Off was just as it should’ve been: packed to the rafters with great people, friendly vibes and lots of good tunes! Big shouts to our special guest The Last Skeptik and all those that made it down and danced your hearts out. The next Lucy Pink and Mildilla takeover of the Abbey Tavern is Saturday 28th August, which just happens to be the Carnival Bank Holiday weekend, so you can expect a super special selection of DJs, music and atmosphere. For more information check out our Facebook page HERE. Tell a friend to tell a friend, grab your dancing shoes and come throw down so moves!
I dunno what to say other than this: There are but an handful of female emcess in this hip hop game I actually rate and Jaz, the lady above, is one of them. She has skills and balls in equal measure and she’s got no qualms about bringing the realness. She stepped out the booth for a minute but it gives me great pleasure to say she’s back! Show your support and spread this video far and wide, the more views she gets, the more chance she’ll get to perform on Charlie Sloth’s 1Xtra Radio show and the more chance we’ll all have of being saved from the bubble gum crap circulating at the moment. Talk with your fingers people and support real talent, don’t make me get rowdy about this!
As authentic as it is stinky, this is a night brought to you by a true Hip hop lover, for all you true Hip Hop lovers. As usual this one isn’t going to disappoint with the charming chatterbox KingPin of the E.O.W camp hosting ceremonies, emcees Mowgli and Danny Spice taking care of business and DJs Snuff and Demon handling the selection. That’s a lorra loving for your fiver!

I’m a notorious nag I am and I’m not about to stop until you all pull your finger’s out your bums and come to Stop Showin’ Off this Saturday! The USP’s are ridiculous: It’s at the Abbey Tavern in Kentish Town (easy public transport links), it’s free to get in, there’ll be everything from Soul, Funk to hip hop thanks to DJ’s Lucy Pink, myself and The Last Skeptik spinning for your audio pleasure and the atmosphere is nothing but friendly and chilled! There’s also a massive beer garden for you to catch some evening rays in. So come and support our anti ‘too-cool-for-school’ revolution!
This is a massive track from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, the nine-piece Brooklyn collective, from their fourth album ‘I Learned the Hard Way’ on Daptone Records. The whole album is recorded entirely on an Ampex eight-track tape machine! Have a peep for the mighty Funk Soul legend Lee Fields’ cameo at the start!
Big line up for this August Bank holiday gig at HMV Forum: Hip hop legends Dead Prez headlining with support from UK heavyweights Skinnyman, Sway and Akala. Tickets are from £22.50 available here and if you’re quick there’s some strictly limited, early bird tickets from £15 available here
Lucky for you, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away! For your chance to win email me: email@example.com with a good and reasonably amusing reason as to why you think you should go to the ball! Competition ends Friday 6th August 2010.
June not only brought my birthday and the commencement of my 31st year on this planet but it was also the first ‘Stop Showin’ Off‘, Lucy Pink and Mildilla take over at The Abbey Tavern in Kentish Town, with very special guest Mr Thing swinging by for a surprise visit. Luckily for you guys and gals this is a regular thang, as once a month we‘ll be taking control of the decks for the evening and each event we’ll have a special guest spinning for your audio and cerebral pleasure. It’s all about good music, shits’n'giggles and strictly no egos if you please! So if, like us, you’re bored of going to places where everyone’s far too kool for skool, come show your support and help us make every one a stormer.
Join our Facebook group and come drop the Catepillar at our next one on Saturday 24th July – the Last Skeptik will be our special guest DJ! Remember it’s FREE as well!
We bring the noise and you bring your dancing feet. Thanks to all that made it down, making it the messy mayhem it was. It’s a dance off, Stop showin’ off……
