Free Party - February 1st (Daytime) - Brixton [22 Jan 2009|11:34am]

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

We Continue is a brand new daytime event designed to change the way you think about partying and give a different shape to your weekend.

You spoke and we listened! Its uplifting house, its bouncy electro, its comfy sofas and quirky décor, it’s in South London and best of all, IT’S FREE!!!

We’re thrilled to be holding our first ever party at the legendary Dogstar in Brixton, a venue steeped in musical history which has played host to some amazing live bands and parties over the years and this will be their first ever Sunday afternoon party!

If you’ve never been to the Dogstar before (and even if you have) you can’t fail to be stunned by the surrealist décor which is different in each and every room. We’re lucky enough to be having our party in the VIP suite, a gorgeous, intimate room with comfy sofas and armchairs, a perfectly proportioned dance space, chandeliers, a private bar and almost panoramic views of Brixton’s buzzing community thanks to the huge windows. The Dogstar is only a 5 minute walk from Brixton tube and overground train services.

Sunday afternoon just got a lot more interesting.

Sunday Saviours:
NOT SHY (This Is Not A Rave/CAT)
SOOTHSAYER (Disco 3001)
JASMINE (Dice, No Judgement)
KILLEMILIO (Dice, UpTownBoogieDown)

Entry: FREE!

2) what is your favorite place in the city, and why?
3) where is the best location to go CD/DVD shopping?
4) what´s the best location to go clothes shopping?
5) what´s the best (easiest & cheapest) way to move around in the city?

Hello, I'm new around here. I wanted to ask you all for tips on good places to go in London, since I'll spend a week there in late August - I like early punk music, reggae, jazz and ska and would love sipping whiskey to something I like for once. Any help apreciated!

Hello all, I'm going to be living in London for ten days in July, where are some places for people around 18 to hangout and drink? Right now I am in Spain, and it isn't going so well because I can't find anyone in my age group.

hello londoners.

i am a photography student looking for models. the idea is to come up with good outfits and either take the model to interesting exteriors or set up a background indoors. the pictures usually come up very nice..(i put effort in the lighting and everything). so, if you'd like to give it a try, or know of someone, please let me know & i'll be very happy. you'd get free big prints as well, of course.

London Trip [21 Jul 2004|11:25am]

Hey, I will be in London from August 5th-9th. Is anything going on around then? Also, I'm staying in South Kensington. If anyone knows of any inexpensive places to eat and drink late, that would be great. I anticipate late nights because of them extreme jet lag. Thanks!

Premieres. [20 Jul 2004|06:22pm]

[ mood | cranky ]

So most premieres are held at Leicester Square...the high profile films that is. The problem is I always find out about premieres after they happen. Is there anywhere that tells you when a premiere is being held. There are always crowds yet it has suddenly accured to me to ask how the hell these people know to be there at the right time....

Thanks in advance if anyone could help me out. :)
