Ch'-ching!...Queen of Grime coming to Sonotheque

Well, they've done it again... Biz 3 has sucked me in once more with yet another great DJ night at Sonotheque. This time they've snagged young UK grime sensation Lady Sovereign for an exclusive stop on her upcoming U.S. club tour on Friday, July 8. Midwest grime fans, consider yourself extremely lucky...this one of only 8 stops on her upcoming stateside tour. In fact, according to her website, she'll be coming to Sonotheque fresh from a gig at the Fabric in London on July 1 and will already be back overseas by the 15th to play the Dour Festival in Belgium. Trust me, you won't want to miss this rare opportunity to see the self-described "multi-talented munchkin" live here in the States. What?? You've never heard of Lady Sovereign?? Here's more from the Sonotheque website: Taking over the UK is 18 year old Lady Sovereign who is already bouting with the best of them. She just signed a huge world wide deal with Universal and is down musically with the likes of Basement Jaxx, Obie Trice, Dizzee Rascal, The Streets and D12. A tiny 5 foot 1, she delves out the beatdown on the alternative microphone with witty lyrics and a flirtatious cheekiness that brings to mind no other. Her music is the current sound of inner city estates in the UK, obvious influence taken from popular dance movements such as grime, garage, jungle, ragga, hip hop and r & b. America has not yet seen anyone like of Lady Sovereign. Tag:

Hey, if anyone else in Chicago is into Grime, come check out "G's Up" (presented by Chicago's Underground Garage specialists, BrĂ¼t Force)on Sunday 7.17 @ Betty's Blue Star Lounge.

I should be out at the Sov show, though. I try not to miss any Garage-related events. Hopefully with Kano's new album released, he'll make a couple stops in the States to promote it.
