The All Dayer After The Night Before
Great time last weekend at the The Monster Raving Looney Party Conference and The Intake in Mansfield, with a bigger event already earmarked for the latter, in the new year...... watch this space !
A late booking for Saturday finds the BB mobile putting in the miles again, with a welcome return to the South West. A new venue for the band in the Devonian north coast resort of Ifracombe at The Chill Bar located on Fore Street in the town centre.
The long drive back, will provide little time for sleep before a relatively early start on Sunday.
The occasion on Sunday provides a great opportunity to join with Steampunks at The Sitwell Tavern, Sitwell Street, off Babington Lane in Derby city centre, running from two in the afternoon and planned to finish somewhere around eight or nine, alowing plenty of time to catch buses and trains far and wide afterwards.
Along with BB's headline set, performances come from that fine Northants Steampunk five piece Gladstone and magestic Matlock metal band 3 Second Fuse, betwixt and between Demolitia has assembled a delectable array of dancing talent and with free admission meaning extra beer tokens, what more could one ask of a Sunday?
With the theme of Steampunk Slayers versus Goth Monsters, splendid outfits or indeed any fancy dress are encouraged, though by no means obligatory. The overriding intent is, to come on down and have a damned good Sunday afternoon. For more go to http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/events/281658271937991/
A preemptive mention for next weekend, when all things Steampunk move northwards up The Derwent Valley to the fabulous setting of Matlock Bath, with entertainment, activities and a market spreading from Friday night in The Fishpond Ballroom into the newly reopened Grand Pavilion http://www.thegrandpavilion.co.uk/, for Saturday and Sunday, all tied in with the Venetian Nights Illuminations and cliff top fireworks display http://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/leisure-a-culture/arts-culture/matlock-bath-illuminations with free entry negotiated for Steampunksto the Derwant Gardens.
