Madchild headlines ‘Hip Hop For Hunger’ at Surrey’s Strumms ‘n Drums club

Venue at Turf Hotel has hosted a variety of music events in recent months

A “Hip Hop For Hunger” show featuring Madchild and others will hit Surrey this Saturday (Dec. 14) at the months-old Strumms ‘n Drums dance club/concert venue located at the Turf Hotel.

Doors open at 4 p.m. for the all-ages event, to also feature Prada West, Hooper Turnt Sanger and many more performers.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for donation to the Salvation Army food bank. Tickets are $40, or $70 for “meet and greet” admission, via whereitsatent.com.

Madchild, of Swollen Members fame, is currently on a “Demons” tour of Western Canada.

Where It’s At Entertainment show promoter Chelsie Grobins said the capacity of Strumms & Drums is around 200 people, at 12411 King George Blvd., near Pattullo Bridge.

The venue has hosted a variety of music events in recent months, including dance, pop, rock and hip-hop. Promo video of the venue is posted to facebook.com/strummsndrums.2018.

“This will be my third show there, and we’re trying to bring back the Surrey crowd we had at the Olympia,” she said, referring to the former hip-hop and rock venue in the Surrey Central area.

“They have a really nice stage that’s high up off the ground (at Strumms & Drums),” she added.

The Hip Hop For Hunger event is something Madchild, Grobins and others have done since 2012, she said. “We do it every year around Christmas.”
