I know I know, I have not been blogging for a while … the last proper blog post was about the epic Camp Savoy 2016 – that was the last camp I attended … now I have booked several others which I will attend by the end of the year but the problem that I face is that if I blog just about camps and stuff … I am only gonna post 10 times a year … this is not called blogging … this is called being lazy.
So, with that in mind, I believe I will be back to my old habbit when I used to blog several times a week – each day I came home after dancing, instead of going to bed I would just write that blog post … I still dance 2-8 days a week, I guess I was just lazy to blog.
OK, back to topic, last Friday I attended Ain’t (Mis)behavin’ 5th birthday. This event is normally 3rd Friday of each month and is held by Uptown Swing (really cool school). This time it was 2nd Friday. I assume that’s because it would have clashed with VAA House Party, Mini Swing Festival pre-party …
So, I went to Mascara Bar at about 8:30 PM and I was honoured to be one of the first people there. We had amazing DJs DJing from vinyl recordings. I think that this very technology is one of the most epic things that actually creates vintage vibes and atmosphere. I really like events where you get music from vinyl records .. or live music … because laptop DJs are cheap … (like me … ;D ). DJs were great, atmosphere was great, people were awesome, I just wish that the venue was larger for so many people. Ain’t (Mis)behavin’ is one of my favourite regular events … and it has been this way for quite a while now.
I really feel like my ego was satisfied on Friday because of so many selfies … it was crazy … and nobody, I mean NOBODY said “NO” to my selfie requests … and some even asked for selfies …
Next, you will see me at Wilton’s Musical Hall tomorrow (Tuesday), I’ll be a very cheap DJ at Dr Low’s Medicine Show, then VAA house party (link above), London Authentic Jazz and Lindy Hop Weekend (link above) over the weekend.
Anyway, we will talk soon.
