Shootin’ hoops in the concrete city

Remember a little while back when we told you we need to put the LA into MK? Well now is your chance to get involved.

Beatboxers that even your mum will like arrive in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is about to find out that beatboxing is no longer underground. While Beardyman may have smashed up the city once or twice with his filthy underground vocal mashups, the Magnets, who hit The Stables tomorrow, are going to show us that man-made beats are no longer something you can claim as your own. With a capella covers of anything from Aerosmith to Lady Gaga, these guys clearly turn their back on cool, but they do have some talent up their vocal chords. So our suggestion is, in the…

Pint down the Shed anyone?

There is a new venue in town, and it smells nice and sounds even better….. this little place has picked up quite the cult following almost exclusively by word of mouth. The watershed, it says above the door ”A dirty little arthole” and it’s self-described by “The shedheads” as a “tiny artistic commune with a massive heart. “ But we think it’s something more than that, it’s something Milton Keynes is in desperate need of. A place for people to hang in the day and drink herbal tea and talk…

We're going to show Milton Keynes that deep dark and dirty is better than cheap, quick and nasty and convince everyone to get deep,…
