There’s something about the festive season that brings out the nostalgia in us – among the splurge of retro-rewind events this year is a set by ’90s hip-hop-poppers Salt-n-Pepa. Despite disbanding a decade ago, two-thirds of the world’s best-selling female rap troupe are back, headlining an event promoters are describing as ‘a wild retro reindeer ride’ and ‘the biggest Christmas ladies night ever.’ We wonder how many lyrics they’ll have to change in hits such as ‘Push It’ and ‘Shoop’. Support comes from Anna Greenwood (Guilty Pleasures UK) and NYC-based Cosmo Baker.
