Had good fun at the opening night of the Oker show last night, but my head hurts far too much now. Anyhow if you’re anywhere near E1 until the end of the month then go pop in to Stolen Space gallery and check it out. The wooden pieces were my personal favourites but there is a load of different work on display plus some nice collectibles to purchase too.
Couple of insta pix from the evening:

Tim and Barry, of Just Jam , are premiering their new film at the ICA tomorrow: 28th July. Sons do Gueto explores the ghettos of Lisbon interviewing the Angolan and Cape Verdean producers fusing together Angolan music with techno, grime and electro creating a wild, high energy sound that currently has no name. From shots of scene leader Marfox rocking local parties, to footage of the originator DJ Nervoso playing a rare, amazing set from a desktop computer set up on his mums living room table, the film offers a unique insight into a sound exploding from the city. The film is followed by a Q&A with Tim & Barry and Principe’s Márcio & Nelson. This then gives way to a collaborative event between Just Jam, Warp, and Principe Records, showcasing some of the top names from Lisbon, with performances from Niggafox, Nidia Minaj and DJ Noronha. Tickets and event details on the ICA site.
