Apollo Video opening tonight
Apollo_banner.jpg

From 6pm tonight the long-deserted Apollo Video in Herne Hill rises from the ashes, reborn as a space for art, music and much more during the month of June, and possibly beyond.

We'll be heading down to contribute to the fanfare.

Also just confirmed we'll be hosting a night at Apollo on 13th June, featuring a mixture of music, performance and a film programme curated by Garry Sykes of The Pictures, the underground film night airing monthly at Barden's Boudoir in Dalston.

Tonight's party is from 6pm-10pm, featuring a DJ set from Fab Fatale.

More info at the Apollo Video website. See you there!

WTCD,TD are having a party in their own back yard, Escape Bar & Art in Herne Hill, and you, specifically, should be there.

There'll be fancy decor and incredible art on the walls, musicians with songs and hearts true, punks, cinematic marvels, curiosities of nature and spectacles to shock and amaze you and your lovely wife! Come one, come all!

Featuring:

THE CAPSIZED SMILES
- wandering minstrels of old. they travelled the world, fought spiders and demons, and returned with rock'n'roll in their hearts.

LES ENFANT BASTARD
Edinburgh's finest, occasionally angry, young man promoting his new EP.

AD-HOC
- some say he's more machine now than man. yet even as the machine erodes the humanity from his soul, something within him fights back anew, and wills the machine, and forces it to dance.

H
- a broken man with sweet soul songs to share.

FILM PROGRAMME
- underground treasures, fragments of lives and gazes.

PLUS:
what they could do, they did DJ's playing anything and everything.
