GUARDIAN GUIDE PICK OF THE WEEK
Thurs 14th FEB: VALENTINE'S SPECIAL! OFFLINE JAMM
9pm-2am. 261, Brixton Rd, Brixton, London SW9 6LH.
020 7274 5537
Nearest tubes: Brixton, Oval, Stockwell
We've got a big Brixton night lined up for Valentine's, but there'll be no pink fluffy bunny rabbits, no cheesy Barry Manilow records or oversized love hearts - just a collection of great live acts, stand up, poets and DJs - and all for free. Yowsa!
An exciting young Hip Hop/Grime UK female artist with a rising reputation, LadyLykez appeared on the London Urban Collective III ATL album ('rough edged grime and hip-hop with often wise and witty wordplay' – DJ magazine) before storming the notorious Club Apache open mic night in Atlanta, USA.
She's now back in the UK and ready to showcase her unique sound, "echoing the distinctive UK take of an artist like Dizzee Rascal mixed with the vocal dexterity and off kilter song structures of Missy Elliot." We love it!
*LISTEN UP! Rob Da Bank will be playing an exclusive new track from Lady Lykez, called Buggin!, when he takes over the Zane Lowe's show tonight on BBC Radio One from 7-9pm.
Hard rocking Brazilian combo on the rise, sporting cheap haircuts and tons of power. They will rock you!
YAP (PINK PUNK)
Lead singer of Pink Punk and former front man of rap metal legends, Yap will be performing a special acoustic set for the Offline massive.
Plus: CABARET HOUR WITH VIC LAMBRUSCO
'Abrasive political comedy' - Time Out
AND: "Experimental, witty and bemusing" stand up with CHRISTOPHER BOYD, Scouse Cambridge-onian PHIL DORAN and a real treat: the return of the hilarious "JORGE'S LETTER TO MAMA" - a Venezuelan student reading a letter to his Mama about his adventures in London. Not to be missed.
PLUS A PULSATING POUCH OF OF TOP DJS!
Including Dubversion (PROD), Editor and Nipsla.
