Stumblin’ Slims is back
THE BLUES KITCHEN PRESENTS…
Following the huge success of its launch in October, Stumblin’ Slims is back to kick off the New Year with some sexy vintage Rock n Roll. On Saturday 21st January 2012 gals in vintage prom dresses and guys in quiffs and tight denim will be revving up the T-birds to get to Stumblin’ Slims, the hottest 1950s Rock N Roll night, taking place at Village Underground in Shoreditch.
Hosted by team behind The Blues Kitchen, Stumblin’ Slims will recreate the girly glamour and leather clad sexiness of 1950s and 1960s Hollywood in East London. Across between Prom Night and a late night drag race meet, Stumblin’ Slims will capture the essence of that era, all with a soundtrack of original rock n roll tracks and live bands.
Saturday’s event will feature live music from Little Barrie – a power trio that plays stripped down Blues, R&B, Funk and Soul. Having supported Primal Scream and Paul Weller, the band recently launched their 3rd album, produced by Edwyn Collins. The night will also feature a DJ set by Kate Hutchinson (Time Out).
Throughout the evening DJ duo, Hits Don’t Hurt will spin vintage hits and dance floor fillers. Based in East London, Hits Don’t Hurt specialise in playing original Rhythm and Blues vinyl that is guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor. Resident DJs at Paradise By Way Of Kensal Green, Hits Don’t Hurt played Glastonbury, The Isle of Wight Festival and The Secret Garden Party, and recently got London dancing while playing the Deadmau5 after party at the top of the Millbank tower.
Throughout Stumblin’ Slims, guests will be able to sip from a (spiked) punch bowl and help themselves fairground-style to popcorn and candyfloss. Marlboro smoking rebels and their bobby socked girlfriends can play spin the bottle in the back of a pickup truck while those without a prom date practice the hand jive and get giggly on milkshake cocktails.
Throughout the night, there will be professional dancers on hand to teach wannabe twisters and jive bunnies in readiness for the Stumblin’ Slims Twist Contest. The winning couple will not only be presented with the coveted twist trophy, but will also win free meals at The Blues Kitchen in Camden.
