London City are proud to bring to you LIVE entertainment in the form of singer Chip Takacs.
Who and what is Chip Takacs? Chip is a boy who was born an raised in the seaside town of Rockaway Beach, New York. at 14 he traded a B.B. gun for a secova electric guitar. Taking lessons from his friend Mike Gordon he progressed to play live shows at local bars in Rockaway. His crowning moment came when he got to play New York's famous night club, CBGB's. Chip has played many different places since then and now brings his music to second life.
Using professional back tracks, he sings and plays live guitar, as if the back tracks are his band. Chip mainly covers songs from the hits of the 70's 80s, and beyond.
He has a typical Brooklyn attitude and isn't afraid to let it flow at his show, and the music has the same bend... some like it, some don't... one thing they all agree on is, it is a show to see and hear...
Make sure you head on over to London City for an event you won't forget.
He takes the stage in LC3 at 11am SLT on 4th July... come on over and join the fun!

So kiddies, we had all the usual stuff in London City over the weekend - some bawdiness at Bar Soho, an utter campfest at Madame Lala's and lots of lovely lunacy at Lezbo. The big events were at Regent's Park on Saturday and Comptons on Sunday - where we had two live performers.
Helvis Xue was our Saturday spectacle in the park. Always a popular singer with a good selection of songs and plenty of banter with the audience.

So here we are - the final weekend review of January 2012. This month has gone by so quickly, but as the saying goes 'time flies when you are having fun'. Of course they also say that 'time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana', but we shall pass over that one as the talk of bananas makes me giddy.
Friday started off for us as it usually does with a visit to Bar Soho where we had a Best in Wild West theme with DJ Billy 'The Kid' Arentire and hostess Lisa. This helped everyone unwind before we all turned in to tie dye clad hippies for Madame Lala's London Revue. Special guests were a tribute to Peter, Paul and Mary and the contest was somewhere between a peace protest and a love in. Although if I am really honest, from the state of how some people were dressed it was more like a protest against good taste...
|Peter, Paul and Mary (as opposed to Mary, Mungo and Midge)|

|Mapoo lets rip|
|The crowd shake their pixels for Ms Little|
And that is it from auntie Bailey for this week. All that remains for me to say, in the spirit of Friday's event at Madame Lala's establishment, is "May peace shower down on you".

Hello kiddies! It is I, auntie Bailey here once again with a review of the weekend in London City. Don't they go by so quickly? I suppose time flies when you are having fun and London City was full to the gunnels (or gunwales if you want to be absolutely correct) with entertainment.
The weekend started even earlier than usual for us as there was the relaunch of World's End pub - with dancing, music, darts and hot tub action with new landladies, Coffee and Heather.
|World's End relaunch party|
On Saturday we had the welcome return of Helvis Xue to Regent's Park. Seems appropriate having the King in Regent's Park!

Hello kiddies, auntie Bailey here again with another weekend roundup. Please bear with me on this, I am a little sore today as I was hit by one of the new London buses yesterday - quite a surprise as I was in my rooftop garden at the time...
On Saturday we had the fantastic Helvis Xue performing live in Regent's Park - about as close to the real Elvis as we could get without coaxing him out of hiding in the chippy in Skegness. The sim was full to bursting and he lulled us all with some smooth tunes first before rocking our socks off.

Elsewhere in London City 3: Victoria things are progressing well. A newsagent has set up shop there and the new club for ladies who like ladies, Lezbo, is close to opening. On London City 2: West End, the World's End pub is proving to be popular with a range of events such as strip bingo(!) and trivia contests.

Yet another fantastic weekend in London City - a mix of old and new.
The weekend was started off with at Bar Soho with a Best in White event that saw everyone looking pure and virginal - so long as you didn't look too closely at some of them, especially the DJ (Billy Arentire aka the CandyMan) - I would have shown you all a pic of his outfit but I couldn't get a clear shot as my hand wobbled on the camera every time I looked at it.
After Bar Soho we caught the bus down to the other end of the street to Madame Lala's London Revue. I prefer to walk rather than catching the bus, as I am an avatar not a crash test dummy. We had a night of campness as is always ensured at Madame Lala's establishment.
For Saturday's Party in the Park we all gathered in Regent's Park with our beverages as the contest was Best in Low Lag Alcoholic Drink - an easy one for most of our members to dress for as there is never a shortage of drinks around London City. The headline act was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel, which was greatly appreciated by the assembled masses. I guess Simon and Garfunkel qualify as the old I mentioned in the opening line of this post.

Another weekend of craziness in London City. It began at Madame Lala's London Revue following a Best in Leather party at Bar Soho. The incomparable Ruby Babylon gave a tribute to Dolly Parton that was a hit with the crowd that assembled. No one could take their eyes off Ruby's dress; in much the same way that people can't take their eyes off a terrible accident.
|The crowd look on anxiously as fireworks are unleashed so close to so much hairspray...|
|So much 'talent' that even the microphone didn't know where to put itself|

A day late with my post this week as it was a holiday here yesterday and the party kept going in London City!
We started the weekend as we always do with an event at Bar Soho, but things quickly moved on as Madame Lala's London Revue Bar had a special event - a live performance by BG Singer, who treated the enthusiastic patrons to a fantastic set.
|BG Singer - and audience|
|The divas all shared a dressing room without incident - although eye contact seemed rare...|

The weekend was brought to a rapturous close by another Party in the Park with a concert by the amazing Amy MacDonald and a selection of hardcore tunes from DJ Ruby.

Total insanity at the weekend in London City. The Friday event at Bar Soho (Best in Green) proved to be a warm up for the later event at Madame Lala's London Revue, which got the weekend off to a rocking start with special guest Tina Turner.
On Saturday we had a party in the park that proved to be a fantastic event and exceeded everyone's expectations. The special guest was Australian musician, singer-songwriter, composer, painter and television personality, Mr Rolf Harris! A free didgeridoo and extra leg were available as gifts for visitors. The backing band were very enthusiastic and took to pogo sticks for 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down' and donned their extra legs to dance along to 'Jake the Peg'!

|The scene is set for an Evening with Madame Lala.|
People often ask Madame Lala to dig deep into her record collection which spans a few centuries and over crank some old songs to modern disco standards.
This morning, during a gin induced depression, Madame Lala sat cleaning all her old scratched vinyl and has decided to throw a cheese and whine party from 1pm PDT in Madame Lala's
Her gramaphone is ready to play all her 33's at 45 and her 45's at 78. She's bought a new needle and Lala hopes you will come and reminisce, laugh and cry at these old records that she has scraped the barnacles off.
Please Bring A Bottle
Mapoo Little rocked the sims again last night with a fantastic rendition of PINK songs and as usual she sung LIVE. The beautiful Mapoo returns again to Mainland London on Saturday 4th June, this time singing the songs of Tina Turner.
