So tonight we have a Wee Do talk with Tom and Lara who wrote the blog World in Slow Motion, at the Carnaby store.  We still have a few free tickets left, so get in touch if you'd like to come along...should be a really great evening.

On a similar note...

A guy I know (Rowan) and his friend Billy are going to be travelling to Cairo using only overground travel.  The purpose of the trip- Rowan (a.k.a. Dizraeli) is an award winning rapper, who has been given an opportunity to perform Rebel Cell in Egypt.  He is an environmental activist and has vowed to never fly again....hence the trip...oh and his friend Billy is a documentary film maker who is going to accompany him.  They have built a website from which they will broadcast their journey as a daily blog, weekly video diary and finally documentary film.

So I was asked to help them promote it- if you can help to finance their trip in any way (they are having a fundraiser in Dalston, London on Wednesday night), follow their travels and most importantly take inspiration from how they are choosing to explore other coutries.  They really want to illustrate how easy train travel is in the hopes to make a positive impact.

So check out their website http://www.unplaned.com/

Rebel Cell

Last night I went to a theatre night of sorts, at Stoke Newington International Airport.  A friend of mine is in a production called Rebel Cell.  Rap theatre from Baba Brinkman, Dizareli and Jamie Simmonds (on the beats and scratches).

The year is 2013 and England is a totalitarian state.  The BBC has merged with the BNP, Tesco are forming alliances with the government and taking over industry, and Glastonbury is a prison camp (England's Guantanamo).  The leader of the revolution is being seen as a terrorist, and has been detained in prison before going on trail.  He has one last chance to tell his story. 

In life, Baba and Dizareli both believe that our government needs a massive shake up- but have very different views on how we need to get there.  Democratic action within the official channels -vs- direct activism.  The show displays their political views to the nth degree, making it a really entertaining show.

They are en route to Edinburgh, as I type this.  If you get a chance to see them perform I would strongly recommend it!  They had rave reviews from the press at last years Endinburgh festival, and this year looks set to be even bigger and better.
