Update: The lovely people at Londonist have listed Oxjam Walthamstow as one of their “Music Choice’s” of gigs in London this week.

Indie Electro pop from The Melting Ice Caps, electronic folk soul from Barbarossa, and spoken word meets hiphop courtesy of PolarBear. Oxjam Walthamstow’s already varied and pretty damn packed bill just got a little bit bigger with the news that Akira The Don who’s closing out the evening will be joined by a “surprise” guest.

At least it was a surprise until US Rapper, activist and spoken word artist B.Dolan took to twitter and facebook:
LONDON! I’ll be making an impromptu appearance and doing a few songs with the homeys Music Like Dirt and Akira The Don at an Oxfam Charity Show this Wednesday. In addition to Akira and myself, you’ll also see PolarBear, Barbarossa & The Melting Ice Caps. All for £6! Wha? Come give me a high five for caring, you fucks. ♥

Akira (above) will be showcasing tracks from his Stephen Hague produced (Pet Shop Boys, New Order)  2nd LP “The Life Equation” but jumped at the chance to have Dolan – who’s over touring with Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip – guest and perhaps performing a couple of his own tunes.

Here’s one of the highlights of Akira’s new album – the love gone wrong but can’t quite let go duet with Envy “Nothing Lasts Forever“:
