Another Bank Holiday and another Party




It is London City's 9th Birthday Bash this weekend and its happening over the Bank Holiday.  This sounds like thirsty work!

Brits are crying out for another Holiday, it has been weeks since the last one, so most of the country is looking forward to a long weekend, with Monday as the Bank Holiday.

This is the final public holiday of the summer, with the next ones being Christmas Day and Boxing Day. 

This public holiday also marks a quick sell-off in the retail sector, to be rid of certain goods to free space up for the Halloween and Festive seasons.

There! I mentioned Christmas in August, forgive me!

So we can expect lashings of cheap grog and last minute sales from all the major supermarkets, with cheap sausages and burgers thrown in for the inevitable Bank Holiday Barbie.

As usual, as part of our public service, we've looked around for the best star deals on grog for this weekend as the boozy Brits sup their pints like there is no tomorrow.

 And they are.. Peroni, 12 bottles for £14 and Stella, 18 cans for £14, both from Sainsbury's.

Carling, 18 cans for a tenner, from Asda!

That concludes this public service announcement!

Substation Sunday



Last night in London, unless you were here, you missed the sensational Cuban Godness, Margarita Practan! 

A truly magical show.  Magical in so far as she managed to turn a 45 minute performance into one that seemed to last several life times.

There is more to come with Substation today at 11am SL time (7pm UK) http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/25/221/17

Pracatan on Saturday: "I lub ewe"



Margarita Pracatan is a Cuban singer who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of a beautiful ballad performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat.

Now, in London,
she  performs a breathtaking show with an unusual orchestra.

A show not to be missed!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

John Holt on Saturday



John Holt in Concert, on Saturday!

Born in Kingston Jamaica in 1947, Holt was one of the biggest Reggae stars by the early 1970s.

Four years ahead of Bob Marley, in 1973 John Holt's Album 1,000 Volts of Holt became the first Reggae Album to break into the UK's Top Ten, spawning Top Ten singles entries for Help Me Make It Through The Night and Touch Me In The Morning.

Although subsequently eclipsed by Marley, John Holt is regarded as the first mainstream artist to bring Reggae music to the masses and he released 56 follow up Albums and toured regularly all over the world until his untimely death in October 2014, aged 67.

Join us on Saturday for original reggae with John Holt.

Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.
