Paigey Cakey brings non-stop celebration to Birmingham Stand For Something date

Halloween weekend might be typically rooted in terror, but tonight offers a thrill as freewheeling as can be.

While costumed crowds wander the streets around the city centre, Mama Roux’s offers shelter from the spooks and surprises with some sensational live music at the Birmingham leg of the Dr. Martens Stand For Something Tour 2016.

Think in-store performance and what do you picture? A musician with a guitar? A crowd swaying contentedly and applauding politely? Not tonight. Tonight Paigey Cakey brings energy to life among the display shelves, her infectious vigour drawing crowds far beyond the Dr. Martens shop’s doors.

Fellow performer Jaykae might be something of a household name on the local scene, but it’s Paigey Cakey who brings fans crawling out the woodwork. Performing in front of a room buzzing with excitement and jumping with enthusiasm, with groups gathered around the windows so as to not miss out even if they can’t get in, the Hackney MC makes entertainment look effortless.

Getting the whole shop to chant her name, with phones waving through the air while people clamour onto chairs for a better view, it’s a brand of chaos befitting of Paigey Cakey’s buoyant personality, winning over the room in mere moments, and drawing fans away from the Halloween fervour outside to her headline show proper.
