146 Spotisfaction Friday – 3rd December 2010 – Ben Mercer

Friday. The end of the week. Time to listen to more music, wind down at work (amirite?), and get ready for another weekend of resting, loving, playing.

Playing being the operative word, because tomorrow, Saturday the 4th, it’s the final of the World Series Of Pong! Now I love a bit of Ping Pong, except when I lose because my team mate is a big gayer, but to big up the competition at the Tooting Tram and Social in South London, Ben Mercer has put together an entirely Pong-based playlist which is so hilarious I had to feature it. Described on their blog as ‘a combination of pun based team names, beer, banter, dance-offs and pong‘ and with DJs and live installation art through the day, it’ll be hilarious, so even though I’m not in the competition anymore I’ll see you down there.

Click on for more deets about the competition. Enjoy the playlist.


WSOP Blurb

The World Series of Pong has been responsible for creating networks of social ping pong players in bars and venues across London that are passionate about music, events, and entertainment. Since the soft-launch in September 2010, the weekly WSOPong events have been expanding rapidly as people are joining the Ping Pong craze and spreading the word through Social Networks. Teams upload images, video content and tweet about their ”˜WSOPong moments”™ effectively promoting and enlisting ”˜new registrants”™ to WSOPong. Not only does ping pong nurture people”™s innate competitive instincts but is creating new unique environments in which to party, socialize, network, drink and have fun all under one roof!

On the day supremo house DJ, Tim Fanucci & Bugs Raplin will be spinning everything from nu-disco sounds to current indie & electro tunes. Live installation art from Captain Bukioe and food & drink specials all day!

PLUS there will be celebrity pong matches and a charity raffle to win a ping pong table of your very own! So bring your mates down (it is FREE after all), have a drink and come see our WSOPong Stars take on some of the best pros in UK.
