I went to I LUV LIVE last Monday night (16 January) and boy was it a good night. Gutted that I couldn't make Eskimo Dance at Proud 2 the Saturday before, I was adamant not to miss this!! I LUV LIVE is a bi-weekly event that takes place in London with established British artists, up &coming talents and an open mic session at the end. On Monday 16 January Kano and Mikey J curated an evening of musical talent and sheer madness!!
I arrived at about 20:30 entering the busy live music venue XOYO in London's Old Street, a basement venue hidden amidst a mish mash of the old East End and recently renovated warehouses home to the trendy elite of Shoreditch. I walked in to a good male-female ratio crowd with a good vibe & surprisingly no attitude. The dress code was relaxed, fashionable street wear - obviously you had your ladies who were dressed up just in case they should get the chance to meet Kano.

After this I lost track of what was going on as the crowd went crazy for Wretch 32 who made a special guest appearance for the track 'ET'. Feeding upon the hype within the audience Kano and crew finished the night off by having fun spitting over old grime beats taking us back to the early noughties when grime veterans where just starting out. Over all I LUV LIVE was a memorable and great night out - not bad for a £10 ticket. I will definitely try to make the next one.
