Attention: Fans of great British music.
Keep your calendars out to mark down March 21. After you get your dance on at New York City’s All England Club this Thursday, Creative London’s “Live From London” will be happening in New York City. There will be performances by The Rakes, Towers Of London, Plan B and Boy Kill Boy. Creative London is a part of the Mayor’s London Development Agency and their purpose is to develop growth of the creative industries in London, and make sure that London realizes its potential to create jobs across London.
