We’re delighted to announce a cracking line up for the opening gig for the Eyes All Around opening on Friday 6th May. We are proud to present the legendary Bob Collins with his band The Full Nelson, ably supported by punk poet and gentleman raconteur Unlucky Fried Kitten and the hypnotic Joe Cottiss.
All are welcome to the opening of the Eyes All Around exhibition, which takes place between 6:30 and 8:00 pm at the Brook Theatre Gallery, and we’d be delighted if you would join us for this gig just down the road afterwards, from around 8:30.
Saturday 6th November sees us back at the Barge in Gillingham for our last Oxjam fundraiser of 2010, where we’ll be celebrating the best of Britpop which, you may recall, was the UK’s last great bid for musical dominance. Back in the Nineties it was all M People, Spice Girls and Grunge, and previously dance music had ruled the waves. Now it was time for proper tunes you could whistle as you did the Lambeth Walk down to the newsagents to buy your copy of Loaded magazine, or surfed the tide of New Labour pre-millenial optimism on your way to procure your first ever DVD from the Virgin Megastore. Or something like that.
Like all of Medway Eyes’ Barge bashes, we reckon this will be big. Even bigger than the mobile phone you had during the great Blur vs Oasis made up media war of 1994, so get there early to bagsy a table. The live music will start some time between 8:30 and 9:00.
Please do your bit by coming along with a pocketful of change for Oxjam, by spreading the word and by clicking on the poster to download and share it.
As ever, our line up is subject to change. We’re relaxed and groovy like that. Expect some bonus performers.
See you on Saturday.
