Offline at the Brixton Prince Albert, 19th July 2008
Raucous Country Show after-party with The Thirst and Innercity Pirates.
Straight off the man stage at the Lambeth Country Show were The Thirst, with Mensah and Mark treating us to a great, singalong acoustic set.
Headliners - and fellow Cardiffians - Innercity Pirates put in a fantastic set. They were brilliant!
We loved their 'Cockney Sparra' single, and their new single, 'Disco' tore the place apart!
DJs Blagsta and Bluestreak.
