Wu Tang Announce UK Tour Dates (Including London!)

In an absolutely massive announcement, the mighty Wu-Tang Clan have just announced a number of upcoming UK dates. This is billed to be their first tour of the UK in the last four years and without a shadow of a doubt tickets will disappear quickly so be sure to act fast (the HMV venues in London are very small and with the amount of time people will have been waiting for this you can count on a near-instantaneous sell-out)!

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (April 15, 2011) through HMV Tickets and will likely be on sale through other outlets such as Ticket Master and Seat Wave (no doubt after these tickets sell out).

The full Wu Tang Clan (including a special guest appearance from Young Dirty Bastard – son of the late, great ODB) will be travelling across the UK starting in London and ending up in Birmingham on the following dates:

  • London HMV Forum – Saturday 11 June
  • London HMV Forum – Sunday 12 June
  • Birmingham HMV Institute – Monday 13 June
  • Edinburgh HMV Picture House – Tuesday 14 June
  • Manchester Academy 1 – Wednesday 15 June

In addition to the full tour you can check out GZA who is touring solo and will be appearing in Highbury & Islington on Tuesday, April 19 next week. Tickets are still available to that gig through HMV’s Ticket Office.

Cineroluem – New Cinema in Clerkenwell

So, whilst having a drink with a friend the other day over by Pop-up Pirates we noticed a group of hipsters playing with aluminum tarps across the road at a gas station. We only assumed it would be some sort of art exhibition, squat party or something else bordering on awful.

However, as it turns out… the final product is nothing short of a work of art in and of itself- and it provides reasonably priced cinema within walking distance of my house so who are we to complain. My hat is off to the folks behind this project and I’m looking forward to checking out a film there ASAP. I will be sure to post a review once I can get a ticket to the bloody place!

The picture doesn’t quite do the place justice, but the chairs are handbuilt out of wood, they’ve gone with a classic marquis and the silver tarps previously mentioned serve as curtains to help you forget you’re in downtown London. You may have to watch out for splinters but this is a masterstroke of architectural repurposing!

Next time you’re in the area definitely check it out:

Terratag Pop-up Shop at Vibe Bar

This weekend we’ve got another sale/opportunity to cop some of the freshest streetwear in London. Our friends over at Benjart are teaming up with Japanese art and toy company Terratag. As has become the custom for this sort of even there will be some giveaways for the first folks in the door so don’t sleep. The event will be over at Vibe Bar on Brick Lane this Sunday (August 22) from 10AM-6pm so get on over there for some daytime drinking, quality DJs and some new threads!

Looks like this event should have a bit more of that hang-out feel than Off The Radar as the venue should permit for more drinks. See you down there!

Streetfest London – October 2010

Get ready for the latest edition of Streetfest coming to you live from a carpark somewhere in London no doubt. Details to be announced soon so keep it locked here.

With the event (now headed into its fifth installment) growing bigger and better with each installation this one is sure to be the biggest and baddest yet. We’ve been at all of the events to date so you can count on live coverage from the event as well as more info as and when it’s released!

Off The Radar – London – July 31

Next weekend it looks like we’ve got another festival/lifestyle event that were hopeful can rival Streetfest, The Reset and other similar events.

Off The Radar Flyer

Organised largely by Ask Your Girl and Benjart the event will feature live music from Terri Walker and loads of fashion from streetwear brands. In addition to Ask Your Girl and Benjart the Jordan brand will be there in force along with Vans, 10 Deep, Crooks and Castles, The Hundreds, Supra and more.

Entry will be free before 12pm (noon) and 2 Pounds from there on out. The event should be a good laugh and will keep the crowds going until 2AM.

As with the Supra x Trapstar sale yesterday you’ll want to be there early to snatch up the nicest pieces, though if you’re more interested in a party you may want to show up a bit later!

Be sure to get yourself over to Westbourne Studios early and look out for us!
