Another top night of fantastic live bands, great comedy, underground no-budget independent film screenings, cabaret, top notch DJs and surprises: and it's all for FREE!
ON THE FIRST FLOOR: an evening of film, cabaret and live music
THE LOST CAVALRY 10.30pm
A new project by Mark West, the former guitarist from FANFARLO, we've been loving the beautiful indie/folk sounds of this great new band.
"Smiths and early Travis-like guitar pop" Time Out
Get on the top floor with FLIXATION for no-budget underground cinema, video mashup, digital craft, amateur film Art, performance and music. Featuring the international premiere of a new performance by infamous Duncan Reekie (Exploding Cinema). Also new work by infectious Clive Shaw (MyEyeysMyEyes) and irate Caroline Kennedy (Exploding Cinema). The compere will be the imperceptible Ray Beam and on the wheels of steel the notorious DJ Tar Baby.
If you have any work you'd like to show or a performance you'd like to do - contact Duncan on 07929876301 or email Flixation
VIC LAMBRUSCO'S CABARET HOUR 9.30
'Abrasive political comedy' - Time Out
Comic piquancy - Independent
With a full line up of comedians, wags, poets and wordsmiths, including lively Offline favourite CAPTAIN OF THE RANT and RICHARD ALLEN - "John Cooper Clarke and Mark E Smith pissing down TS Eliot's letterbox.""
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a selection of ska, punk, reggae, roots, rock'n'roll, new wave, punk, big band, garage rock and more, rocking on till the early hours, including:
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
LANG & LOPEZ (The Actionettes)
A veritable platter splatter of 50s, 60s, Motown and more vital tunes from the Actionettes' very own Glamour Queens of Vintage Vinyl.
BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
