Blondie on Saturday



Forty years ago, waitress Debbie Harry, who had been performing part-time in a folk band, formed  Blondie with her friend, Chris Stein.

In 1976 they released their first album Blondie and from then on became a huge success in Australia, England and America.

Although the bulk of their hits were in a relatively short timespan from 1978 to 1981, their most successful release, Maria was not until the band reformed, many years later in 1999.

Now regularly touring again, you can enjoy the hits once more at The Blondie Tribute Concert, this Saturday in London City.  The party begins at  12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.

Weekend in Review - 13th to 15th April



Well that's another weekend over with and a new week has been birthed.  On a brighter note, that means we are even closer to the next weekend in London City!

The weekend got underway for us at Bar Soho on Friday with a Best in Sportswear contest.  Hostess Katty stepped in to help out as the regular host was abducted by aliens (or RL, which is much the same experience).  Yours truly stepped in to DJ for the night and I have to confess, I rather enjoyed myself...not sure how much the clientele enjoyed my dance tracks though!

After Bar Soho, we headed down the street as we usually do on a Friday to Madame Lala's London Revue, where there was a special performance by Blondie.

Maybe not Atomic, but definitely traces of radiation...
The party at World's End pub on Saturday was in danger of being raided by the police as the contest was Best in Baddie.  Thankfully the criminal masterminds of London City were able to stay free and made their escape after the event.

For the main event in Regent's Park we saw the ever popular Bee Gees take to the stage.  I do like a nice stage but it usually takes more than that to get my knickers wagging, however, this was something special - a giant disco ball that opened up to reveal the group.

An awesome stage set

After the concert in Regent's Park, revellers (who were obviously drunk and had impaired judgement) boarded the night bus.  Their destination was a Best in Space event at Lezbo and given the bus drivers in London City, a flight in to space is highly probable.

On Sunday we had another sixties inspired event at Substation with the contest theme of Mods and Rockers.  There was also a live performance by the ever lovely Adevina Citron - great voice and a great personality too.

A great crowd for Adevina
To round the weekend off, there was a Rocky Horror Picture Show event over at Lezbo.

And that's all from me for another week.  Stay tuned to this channel for more news on London City!

Weekend in Review - January 6th to 8th



Yes, it's me again, auntie Bailey the crazy spinster of London City with the weekend review so hang on to your hairnets and let's do this.

Our weekend kicked off in London City as they always do with a Best In contest at Bar Soho.  Friday's contest was Best in Slogan T-Shirt so no photos have survived the censor's knife as everyone always wears things with rude slogans.  Even a shy, retiring maiden aunt like me is force in to something provocative.

After our stint at Bar Soho ended, we trudged off down the street like some bizarre protest march to Madame Lala's London Revue, where we were treated to the musical stylings of Judith Durham and The Seekers.  I am sure I was not the only one who regarded this with more than a little trepidation but it turned out to be a fantastic musical tour through some classic songs that had the patrons dancing in the aisles...or maybe that was the alcohol.

On Saturday we had our big event in Regent's Park with a new addition to the list of tribute concerts.  London City favourite Britt McMahon brought us Blondie - ably assisted by some of the lovely ladies of the London City staff (who were all transformed in to men to be Debbie Harry's band).  Despite many complaints (from the staff who were forced to wear sensible, i.e. ugly, male shoes), the concert was a huge hit with numbers on the sim peaking at 102.

You may have guessed the contest theme was Best in White
Sunday brought us a sense of deja vu as Judith and The Seekers did an encore performance at Comptons.
