On Sunday 1st September 2013, live music venue and diner The Blues Kitchen is joining forces with sister venue XOYO in Shoreditch to host ‘The Blues Kitchen Explosion,’ a festival of BBQ, music and fashion which will see XOYO transformed into a hip vintage fashion and record market and live music and soul food venue.
From noon until 5pm, it will be all about vintage fashion stalls plus vintage hair design and make-up by Lipstick & Curls. A gentleman’s barber shop will offer cuts, shaves and styling throughout the day as well and vinyl collectors can browse stalls selling swing and soul music, vintage records and t-shirts.
Raison D’etre and Dustaphonics DJs will be there to mix a wild blast of original soul and rhythm 'n' blues from the 1950s and '60s. The Blues Kitchen will be on the XOYO rooftop and terrace serving its soul food and Creole barbeque menu – as will Camden food vendors, Original Jerky. Drink Mint Juleps and Sazeracs.
From 5pm to midnight, expect live music from headline acts King Khan & the Shrines (Live Party Rhythm n Blues), Little Barrie (Live Surf Rock N Roll), Huey Morgan (Rock n Soul DJ Set) and Andrew Weatherall (Special Rock n Roll/Rockabilly set) and sets by The Blues Kitchen Radio DJs, Oh Gunquit!
