B-Boys for Life 2007
B-Boys for Life 2007
Posted by Gizmo on June 18, 2007 :



Speaking as a fossil of the B-Boy scene, I've carried more rolls of lino and hunted for more cardboard than I care to remember. Sadly, my old body isn't quite as ready to be bent out of shape (especially this week - long story) as much as it used to but should you wish to find out about the past, present and future of B-Boying - and you're in the UK - get yourself to the B-Boys For Life event this coming Saturday in Birmingham. And if I could just stress this part - IT'S FREE. I repeat - FREE. Big up the Punch Records people again!

For those of you who went to the completely brilliant but somewhat undersubscribed DJs For Life, this is in exactly the same style with luminaries from all eras of B-Boy culture stepping up to talk about and demonstrate what it's all about. And for free as well. I'm hoping to get down there on Saturday and will be polishing my Gizmo belt buckle especially for the event.

Oh... did I mention it's free as well? And about 10 minutes walk from New Street Station as well so it's dead easy to got do. And it's free. So no excuse for all you B-boys, B-girls, troopers and troopettes to get to Birmingham to support events like this - put on for you and for free as well.

General info is here and there's a myspace page as well.

I wouldn't have expected anything less from you. I truly wished someone would have asked that for real.

Since it's "bboy for life" I thought I'd mention that this year is the 30th anniversary of the original B-boy crew......the RockSteady Crew!

I checked the price of flights last night. Looks like this B-Boy will be raising a glass to the RSC from the UK. :'(
