Tonight is the big night that I have been hyping up like a mad woman for who knows how long. I am here in Trinidad, mostly for tonight's big show. It is the biggest and best celebration of soca music on the calendar!
Must admit, I've lost a little bit of my hype seeing that I actually had to pay a hell of a lot of money for my media pass. But I do this for you, so wha you go do? Oh yeah, this time around I'm also doing it for The Caribbean Camera in Toronto, The Searchlight in St. Vincent, and possibly to other international publications I'm not able to disclose as yet. Allyuh tink is nothing but fete, but is wuk I here wukking.
If you want to play a part in supporting the artists tonight, I've provided the complete list of text codes. All you have to do is choose any of the codes listed below and send them to the numbers provided. The top vote getter will win title of "Peoples' Choice" which has the added benefit of a cash prize for the artist. So what do you say? Time to support!
The lines are open from 8 pm to 3 am, and you can text as often as you like.

Love and Soca,
P.S. I know everybody and they bruddah looking for a free online stream to watch. Unfortunately, there is no official one I can give you. BUT...this is 2010. Do yourself a favour and check out sites like USTREAM.COM and JUSTIN.TV . I bet you the price of my press pass some local soca fan will be pointing a webcam at their tv and streaming de show for allyuh.
Not ideal, but still and idea. Have a great night!
