Something For The Weekend in London: October 19-21

Howdy, adventurers – we’re out of town this weekend as we’re making our way to Amsterdam to run hard (and play harder), but we leave you with a brilliant weekend that looks a little something like this: hip-hop dance by the good man Jonzi D, a fashion exhibition dedicated to sneakers, a new eatery in West that we’ll be having brunch at fairly soon, and two creative festivals that’ll remind you why Autumn’s going to be the best season of the year. Enjoy!

To Infinity Ink and beyond: Luca C and Ali Love – the story so far

Infinity Ink are Luca C and Ali Love, a duo who have been friends for over a decade. Having both come from musical backgrounds, working as session musicians, performing in bands and so forth individually – as well as writing songs together for a while, they started making electronic music a couple of years ago and have excelled.
