Inspired by Nick Hook’s (Cubic Zirconia) annual “Dre Day” in NYC, CYOA! are throwing a special intimate birthday bash for Big Snoop Dogg’s 40th!
On Saturday 22nd October we shall descend to the basement of the Hideaway in Archway for a night of Snoop music, videos and other paraphernalia! Feel free to dress accordingly (maybe in one of Snoop’s many failed fashion lines) and there will even be a free cup of Gin & Juice for everyone upon arrival at Tha Dogghouse!
40 YEARS OF THE D.O. DOUBLE G…IT’S CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!
A must for any Snoop Dogg fan, be sure to stop by CYOA!’s celebration of Snoop’s 40th. Need motivation? Check out our recent Unnecessary Throwback for a reminder of the entertainment Snoop brings!

“Since launching in March, the events have gone from strength to strength and are now a necessity in any 90s music lovers diary!
Named after Missy’s first Album (but you knew that), the music is ONLY 90s Hip-Hop and R&B, so expect to hear Dr Dre, Snoop Dog, KRS One, Wu-Tang, Nas, Bigge, Tupac, A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, LL Cool J, Missy and all the hottest 90s R&B joints from the likes of R Kelly, Donell Jones, Montell Jordan, TLC, Destinys Child and loads more good stuff. There are also live sets from two of the hottest bands of the moment; The Thirst and Shadez The Misfit. Selected Pints & Vodka mixers are just £2.20, so even the drinks are 90s prices!
We’ll be launching our exclusive ‘I’m Supa Dupa Fly’ t-shirts at this event, and we’ll be giving away free ones to those of you who we feel deserve it the most!”

A couple of us here at OTU are longtime and frequent users of the Last.fm service, and it’s interesting to see this next step in their progression, a very smart one given all of the great data they have at their disposal.
Last.fm announces CocknBullKid as the headline act for the first monthly ‘Last.fm Presents’ gigs. The monthly flagship music events, taking place in London on the first Friday of every month, will be curated by Last.fm data and powered by listeners. The first gig will be held at The Garage, London, on Friday 7th October 2011. The events will include a range of live acts selected according to the popularity of listener’s scrobbles and the Last.fm Hype Charts – providing a line-up of the most popular and hottest up and coming artists.
When asked about her appearance at the primary Live Friday gig CocknBullKid said “All I’m saying is that there’ll be a story – a cradle to the grave journey. And it will be very interactive. There may even be vogueing.”
