Pay Attention’s patrons are already familiar with TSD, who has been the host and face of the event since March. A longstanding member of the local hip-hop community, he will be performing his own music, including his recent single, “A Journey Through Life”, among others from his upcoming EP, “Inferno”.

Slo Mo, who was featured on Toots and the Maytals’ 2009 re-release of “54-46”, will also be performing music from his recently released mixtape, “Scotch Bonnet”.

BPM – a 3-member group comprising S.O.S. Dynamikz, Lady Livi and Bruce – is one of the leading hip-hop groups in the parish of Manchester. They are known for their online content, including music videos and ciphers, and will be making their first stage appearance in Kingston at Club Indulge.

Reggae-Soul artiste, Mario Evon, will also be bringing his unique flavour to Pay Attention. He has graced the stages of Red Bones, the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival and even the Apollo Theater. Described as “Babyface meets Bob Marley with a touch of Junior Gong”, he will be singing songs from his upcoming debut album.

“We present unique line-ups each time,” says Racquel Allen, Pay Attention’s public relations manager.. “We always have acts you may never have seen, but you will definitely keep hearing about as they rise. This October show is going to be phenomenal!”

Gates open at 9 p.m. and performances will begin at 10:30 p.m. Admission at the gate will be $600, while presold tickets are available for $500 at Nanook Enterprises, 20 Burlington Avenue, and Gambling House Recording Studio, 21 Haining Road. Ladies are 2-for-1 until showtime.
