After months of  speculations and trepidation, the new Windrush Square was unveiled last Saturday, the 27th of February 2010 so MyBrixton had to go and take a look.
The event itself did not draw much of a crowd although the children of Brixton seemed to be having a good time exploring the new features of the square and dancing to the music of The Illersapiens who made the party worth going to.

Ooh yesterday was a busy night in B-Town. Being last Thursday of the month and all that, it was of course Rodigan time at the Hoot, but on top of that Post War Years were down at The Rest Is Noise and The Fridge was getting it’s first proper gig on (more on that later).

But I decided to don my freshly dry-cleaned coat and head down to the recently refurbished Upstairs at The Ritzy, reeking like perchloroethylene (is fresh dry-cleaning supposed to smell like a vat of nuclear waste?) for the return of The Illersapiens Soul Jam session.

We’ve mentioned The Illersapiens on here before but I don’t think we’ve waxed lyrical about them properly yet. I think the general consensus at My Brixton HQ is that they’re off the scale. They won us over at the Brixton Splash back in August, especially when they unleashed their track ‘Brixton’ and we unofficially made it our national anthem (B-R-I-X-T-O-N you dunno!). Their EP is most definitely worth checking out here – it’s only  £3.95 on iTunes and for that price you can floss Jay-Z style cause ‘money ain’t a thang’…

But rather then try and explain how tight the band are, how lyrically adept Mr. Man is and how goosebump-inducing Katy B’s vocals are just check this out:

So after a fresh set from them, the stage was open for anyone wanting to come up and jam along, whether singing, playing, emceeing…and this is Brixton y’know, so the talent is fresh. It’s a monthly affair guys, so make sure you book the date for the  next one- Thursday November 19th.

Yeah! Yipeee! It’s that time of the year again, it’s the Lambeth Country Show!!!
A weekend of free entertainment, live music and organic cider drinking for everyone, so get yourselves down to Brockwell Park on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of July.
If you’ve never been and might need a little convincing, here are a few shots from last year’s:

Anyway, I just had a peep at their programme and I know I’ll be looking out for Johnny Clarke, The Top Cats who I saw only last week at the Hootananny (They were rocking!!!) and Lambeth Wind Orchestra, who I happen to have seen too, and they’re pretty cool!
Also, because Brixton is rather good to us, on the same weekend we are treated to the annual Urban Art Fair on Josephine Avenue!

You know the drill, come out and experience it, and I’ll see you all there! ;0)

My Brixton is tired! It’s been a busy weekend and that Monday morning feeling has kicked in. But we had to share pics from the Man Like Me gig at the Hoot on Saturday – it was too hot. Might’ve even have been too hot for the Hoot. The dancefloor spontaneously combusted for the short but oh so sweet set that MLM played.

Apparently one of their band members had just quit that day and they did seem to be pumping a lot of pent up frustration into the performance. But if they needed reassurance that even just as a two-piece they can carry their act off, they definitely had it that night. Revelers couldn’t have cared less as they jammed out to tracks like Fruit, Carny, Single Dad and their new single London Town. You have to catch them live. You MUST.
