Hello! You may have read on Twitter that we're putting on a gig in Manchester next month. Well, here are all the juicy details you need! If you could share this info with all your pals that would be great. We're going to be selling copies of the new issue of Young Explorer, too, so even if you hate music you should still come. Here's the slightly annoying blurb I wrote about it, plus the amazing poster that Liz made:
Young Explorer presents:
everyone's favourite pop band are touring in may and we've managed to talk them into playing for us at kraak! the nme gave their debut album 7/10 and said very complimentary things about it. they don't play live that often so take this opportunity while you can, yeah?
ace punk supergroup comprised of members of stairs to korea, dananananaykroyd and internet forever. pitchfork reckon they're good as well. they have a new album coming out on alcopop! in may, and the video for their most recent single "why don't you just fuck off?" is well worth watching.
the gig is on saturday may 25th and will take place, roughly, between about 7:30pm and 10:30pm. the gig will start and finish quite early because we don't like staying up late.
tickets available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/217780 NOW! £5 in advance or £6 on the door. tickets are already selling pretty well so book now!
there will also be a stall selling zines and nice things and i may find a way to utilise the tombola wheel that i salvaged from work at some point during the evening. watch this space!Tell us you're coming on Facebook so we don't spend the next six weeks or so hyperventilating about nobody bothering to come. It will be really fun, we promise!
See you there!
