Taking risks are apart of business, but when you build your brand a certain way and you plan and execute your marketing strategy properly those risks pay off and our final CAN I KICK IT? of 2017 exemplifies that risk, as we decided to conduct it the day after Christmas, despite a number of people responding after hearing the news, “You’re going to it when?” and “Are you sure, its the day after Christmas?”
The answers to those questions came in the form of us having our biggest crowd to date at Songbyrd, where standing-room-only quickly came into effect. And the irony is that Songbyrd actually bought more chairs which was great because they did get used, however, the demand persisted.

For this to be our first ‘fan pick’ edition of CAN I KICK IT? we were pleasantly surprised. When you do something new, you have no idea what’s going to happen, but then you have moments like this where people participated with lots of and in some cases – very random suggestions of movie titles and then there’s the surprise announcement of the film that night, which, as we hoped would happen, proved to be the icing on the cake.
In the end, Road House, a classic title from the late 80’s starring Patrick Swayze (RIP), won the night. Props to Songbyrd for hosting and thanks again to everyone who came thru as well as all of those who spread the word. Lastly, special shout to Maishah for also run our pop-up shop.

Our return to Songbyrd after our month long CAN I KICK IT? series at Freedom Plaza, had some minor hurdles (arrive early for seating), but was a good time. We’re now downstairs, for the next few months, and Songbyrd’s performance space is a great fit allowing for people to chill out and enjoy the movie.
Thanks to everyone who attended, Sonbyrd for hosting, props to Efua’s Baby (pop-up shop), and salute to everyone who helped spread the word.
And if you missed this month be sure to check us out next month Aug. 22nd for Shaolin vs Ninja.
