Jazz Artists On The Greens 2016 – A Kinda Review

Jazz Artists On The Greens 2016 – A Kinda Review

Disclaimer: Due to logistics issues and new parent obligations of some members of the crew, we were not able to catch all of the performances. Sorry, folk.  To call Jazz Artists On The Greens (acronym: JAOTG) a concert would mischaracterize the show. I wouldn’t feel comfortable calling it a music festival either, even though the(…)

Not Asking For It

Not Asking For It

Trigger Warning: This post deals with a sensitive topic. It covers consent, rape culture, victim blaming and a raft of other unpleasant issues that need to be addressed. There is also some harsh language, but no more, or less, than we feel is necessary. Once again, we are about to delve into some unsettling shit.(…)

JAOTG – Jazz Artists On The Greens

JAOTG – Jazz Artists On The Greens

We’re in a bit of a transitional period here at Trinidad Carnivals. This year has seen us attempt to provide more varied content to our followers. One way we have looked at doing this is through covering events which,  while not Carnival-driven, are relevant to our spirit and interesting to our readers. So with that(…)

Fatima All Inclusive (50th Anniversary) – The Review

By Shello Price – $950. For what is considered an ultra-premium all-inclusive, you can’t really complain too much at the price. (4 out of 5) Music – There were live performances by Dil e Nadan, Famer Nappy and the Red Boys, Bunji/Fay-Ann with Asylum, and Blaxx/Ricardo Dru with Roy Cape All Stars. All the performances(…)

Carnival Cups – The Review

By Triniyute Carnival Cups took place on 29th January at The Anchorage. It was my first time attending this cooler fete, so this one was a new experience. Price ($250) – $250 for a cooler fete? Where do I sign up? All jokes aside, with the cost of feting sprinting upwards (see Soaka), finding a(…)

Soaka ‘til Sunrise – A Fete Review by Shello

For our first fete review, Shello attended Soaka. These are his thoughts, and the first of many more to come. Price ($400) – Normally, this would be a big no-no for a regular cooler fete. Based on the type of entertainment and the vibes however, the price might be considered to be reasonable. Scalpers made(…)

K2K Alliance And Partners 2013 Carnival Band Media Launch: The Human Race

K2K Alliance And Partners 2013 Carnival Band Media Launch: The Human Race

After weeks of teasing us, K2K Alliance And Partners held the Media Launch for their 2013 presentation, The Human Race, yesterday morning at a private venue. While the launch gave us a preview of the theme and some of the designs for The Human Race (which may very well cause Maria to become catatonic), the twins also(…)

Want To Change The World?

Want To Change The World?

Here at TC Headquarters, the idea of safer sex goes way beyond the glass bowl of condoms in the lunch room. We also try to help the good folk at the Got It? Get It. movement with their mission of promoting sexual education and sexual health. Now they are offering you the chance to get more directly(…)

Beach House: A Rookie Perspective

Beach House: A Rookie Perspective

In this age of tightened belts, deficit budgets, and austerity measures, it ain’t easy to shell out a cool thousand dollars on a fete. Actually, it isn’t easy to shell out a thousand dollars on a single fete, even in the best of times. Therefore, it took a lot of convincing to prompt me to(…)
