This year I haven’t been feeling very Christmas-y but luckily, a special Christmas show put together by The Jingle Boys and Kid iD got rid of my ‘bah humbug!’ attitude.

It was loads of fun but they were performing in aid of a very important cause – to raise funds for male suicide prevention charity, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). We heard some statistics regarding the frequency of suicide attempts amongst men and it was really shocking.
I should mention that all the money raised on the night went to CALM.
Kid iD then took to the stage for an eagerly anticipated reunion. Now, I’ll be honest, I’d never been to a Kid iD show or even heard much of their folk-ska-pop-carib-funk-rock music so I really didn’t know what to expect.or even that I’d enjoy their performance (sorry guys!), but my apprehensions were totally unnecessary. They were so good! They performed a lot of their own material but also covered ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ from The Jungle Book. It really was a fun night!
Four Tit DJs put on a set afterwards but I had to rush off to catch the last train home, which was a shame because I really would have loved to stick around… but at least I was humming ‘jingle bells’ on my way back.
