This week's Tweet Of The Week judge was Ben , our next door neighbour at Hackney Downs Studios. He gave the award to...oh jeez, Hoxton Radio presenter Harry Moore. It were somat bout the Mercury Music Awards. Ben just liked his enthusiasm. It was a bit of a thin week for tweets to be honest.
But not for music! Cheesy link, soz. New tunes from Macklemore, S.G. Lewis, Lewisberg, Madison Ward and Mama Bear (his mum) and Little Simz, my favourite rapper from Islington.
Rap legends NWA and their film Straight Outta Compton was a perfect midnight movie on Saturday night at the Rio, Dalston. Hackney Picturehouse put up a good fight with the cult movie Pan's Labyrinth, if you're into fauns.
And for an X Factor antidote, there was Sunday's Allsortz night at Rich Mix on Bethnal Green Road. It's a showcase for new talent, so I usually give 'em a plug.
Bill's Pop-Up Saturday at 4pm.
