5 – Dark Suburb to stage their first show for the year this February, more on this coming soon folks
6 – Come hangout with Zainab Sule at ‘an evening with Zainab’ on 5th of February. Entry is free
A friend called me from Lagos and asked, “Zainab, why is the #aneveningwithzainabsule event free? Art is not cheap o. Let them pay!” I’d be the first to admit that I rarely do free stuff. Without apologies. Musicians need to chop too. But every once in a while…. it’s not always about money. It’s just about music. So make plans. Come. Let go. Feb 5. Free.
LOOOOOOT of shows as you can see people. Gosh. We should be getting invites to these things really. Just saying. Still, remember, support your local bands /,,/
