Thurs 5th June: Work It
Sara herself had some press this weekend via a Lauren Cochrane article in the Guardian on Sat "Dig Out The Dungarees" picking up on the resurgence interest in 1990's R&B. Sara set up a new club night to bring back the classics that are not played anywhere else in London ........
"on both sides of the Atlantic are creating clubs dedicated to the 1990s sounds of their childhoods, like New York's 1992 (lauded by the New York Times) with Mariah Carey, MC Lyte and Janet Jackson on their playlist. Or London's Work It which boasts a hair fade on the flyer and plays everything from Luther Vandross to Bell Biv DeVoe; it also serves beer bottles in brown paper bags, New York-style, to girls in TLC-ish dungarees."
The next installment in Dalston is June 21st. Here are pictures from the last event by Simon Archer Hurlstone.
