‘SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS’ LONDON PREMIERE

Posted on 23 August 2012 by Chris Ford

Yes This September, Stella Artois is is hosting another fantastic film screening this time you have  the chance to win tickets to the UK premiere of ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits’, a film that follows LCD Soundsystem’s frontman, James Murphy through his final showdown gig at Madison Square Gardens. Stella Artois have partnered with Picturehouse Cinemas and Pulse Films to host the premiere, followed by ‘An audience with James Murphy’- a special Q&A event for film fans at the screening.

 

‘Shut Up and Play the Hits’ is an intimate portrait documenting the final performance of iconic band, LCD Soundsystem. The film tells the story of how frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The four hour gig instantly sold out and moved the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief. This personal account follows the final 48 hours of James’ career, as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.

The exclusive event will take place at the Hackney Picturehouse and will also be satellite broadcast to over 40 cinemas on Tuesday 4th September at 8.40pm. Film fans will have the chance to win tickets to attend via the Stella Artois UK Facebook page – the online home of the Stella Artois Cannes Cinema Club, a unique club bringing to life great moments in film with exclusive experiences for film lovers everywhere. To be in with a chance of winning, fans can click on a dedicated tab at the top of the Stella Artois UK Facebook page that will direct them to a short entry form. They will then be entered into a prize draw that will be live from Wednesday 22nd August and run until Tuesday 28th August. The winners will be drawn and notified on Wednesday 29th August.

The premiere screening and Q&A will be the second instalment in a series of stand-out film events hosted by Stella Artois this year, in partnership with Picturehouse Cinemas. The scheme kicked off with a UK preview of Bart Layton’s highly anticipated real-life thriller ‘The Imposter’, which we talked about here a few weeks ago.

Scottevest – Tech friendly Clothing

Posted on 08 August 2012 by Chris Ford

I have been meaning to write about Scottevest for a while,  for several reasons now seems the time to let you know about them.

Scottevest produce tech friendly clothing, their jackets are designed to be loaded up with things like a Ipad, camera , water bottle, sunglasses,  headphones all the usual stuff  but in such a way that the weight is distributed that you hardly notice these things are there.

I carry my Ipad on the train every day in my Scottevest and nearly every day I get a shocked look from a fellow passenger when I produce the tablet from inside my jacket, for me that’s why I bought my first Scottevest product, I don’t like carrying a bag and now I dont have to!

Another big plus of the range is when travelling through  airports, no more am I limited to the space in my carry on, my Scottevest is essentially a whole extra carry on for all my stuff, the above picture shows a xray style image of just the sort of things you can carry in one of the jackets.

I could go into more details on their product range but I really think you will get the best overview by visiting their site, watching a few of the videos and reading some of the feedback, I know that helped me make my mind up.

Scottevest products can be purchased direct from them at www.Scottevest.com  or in the UK they are now selling via Amazon.

For me Scottevest products really are a travel essential.
