Idris Elba might be more well known as an actor these days, but he apparently started off his career as a DJ and is planning on giving something back this Thursday by playing a free gig at The Star of Bethnal Green in East London.

Here’s what the blurb for the event says:
This Thursday our Electric Star sister bar The Star of Bethnal Green will welcome back the return of a very special guest DJ.
Having had a long history with our pub long before he became the superstar he is now. Known more prominently now for his blockbusters he is far from your average actor turned musician, having begun his career as a DJ long before finding fame on the big screen. Consistently dropping the hottest tunes he has played festivals such as Elrow, South West Four & Creamfields.
Voted as this years Peoples Magazine ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ we welcome back Idris Elba.
Support will come from The Menendez Brothers.
Free Entry – Open with a later license to keep the party running. 8pm – 2am
Sounds like it’ll be a fun event I guess. I’ve no idea if Idris Elba is any good as a DJ but you can stay out late and get wasted on a school night and have a boogie so why the hell not hey? See you there.
For more Idris Elba, here’s a trailer for the new series of Luther. Excellent.
