The vibes were just right that night.  The weather was warm, the sky was clear and there was a hell of show going down in Brixton!  I arrived at Hootannany just in time to grab a pint and make my way to the already packed dance floor.  The band hit the stage, done a quick tune in and we were off to the races.  Zion and the White Boys have being rocking crowds for 4 years so the dance floor was jammed with fans singing and dancing along.  From Ska, to Dancehall, to Funk, this band does it all while maintaining their signature style the entire time.  Its great to see a reggae fusion band throwing down with so much energy while having a blast on stage.  My personal favourite tunes were the reggae remixed “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics, the crowd sing along favourite “Summer Time” and the cheer up anthem “Smile”.  Check for these guys performing all over London, a band with a live show you definitely don’t wanna miss.

For anyone in the Sweden area this weekend, specifically Stockholm, you may wanna carry your ass down to Art of the Streets, Aug 13-14.  Check out some of the sickest gaffiti art, rap battles and all around street culture being presented in a two day showcase. On August 14 check out the live perfomanee of my label mates, Balkan Brigaden, and Flowdan. About 8 euros gets you in the door with both shows jumping off at 9:00pm.  Forget Ikea and the meatballs, sweden will be reppin’ hard for street culture this weekend.
