This week has been all about great music events in and around London. The urban lifestyle brand EASTPAK, hurled a New Year’s Party (yes that’s right, a New Year’s Party!) to be remembered at us. Breaking the mould and smashing the rules, their guest list only event was held at the Hoxton Bar and Grill and proved all those doubters out there that you don’t need to wait until the end of the year to celebrate until the early hours of the morning.
Gemma Suyat went along to this one to check out what all the fuss was about and was greeted by a host of talent. Matthew Horne of Gavin and Stacey fame hosted the evening and introduced some great acts including Wild Palms, LA Shark and Good Shoes.
…September is in fact the new January…
Gemma confirmed with us afterwards that September is in fact the new January and we are so convinced that we are having Christmas next Monday and Hallowe’en every Tuesday.
The party didn’t stop there as our good friends at Spectrum invited us along to their brand new re-launch at the Electric in Brixton. Not for the faint-hearted, the evening was full of headline acts who relentlessly pumped out bass heavy hits until the crowd became so overwhelmed with delight they all either melted to the floor or exploded on the spot and the mess is still being cleaned up now.*
…Our own Bass queen Chloe McLaren went along to this one…
Causing the damage was Pete Jordan behind the decks and bass face painting acts including Jakwob, The Japanese Popstars, Borgore and Bare Noize.

So a noisy week was had by all, so much so that were going to have to put our slippers and cardigans on for the next seven days and revitalise with some cultured viewing.
We will have a bunch of film previews for you including Clint Eastwood’s new directorial effort J. Edgar which stars Leonardo Di Caprio, and a feature on the actor Charlotte Gainsbourg. Did you know she started out as a musician? Well you can find this out and much, much more at MouthLondon next week.
*This is definitely not true.
