cool - the subvertise exhibition (series of ten posters) is confirmed.
on another note - there's another good party on that night post bookfair
that's been posted to the newswires and will give some stiff competition
for punters see below - so pre-flyering this wkend is very very important!
and getting outside the activist scene important too :)
some indy party flyer pics at:
Or munt on down to this after the bookfair:-
Senser ( top crusty band now reformed )
Inner Terrestrials (Punk as it should be )
Headjam (No introduction needed for this brilliant band )
Plus Ska, Breakz, D & B, Techno, Cafe, Fireshow and No attitude...
Siren, underground Sound, Special Needs Disco, Reknor.
