Alt! Who's Going There?
A brief one this week, since the dreaded BB BlackDeath virus, appears to be doing the rounds again.
Could not let the news pass though, that there is only five days left on Altfest's Kickstarter promotion, featuring great ticket offers/
Least you should have missed out on what Altfest is, please allow a quick preview.
It is a major new three day festival to be held in August 2014. We are talking up to 55,000 people. Main stage acts have yet to be released, however with a dedicated "Steampunk Experience" stage with BB comissioned to "attend to the details" it may well be worth attendance for that alone.
There is much more though! Stages dedicated to Goth, Metal and Industrial, a circus tent run by "The Circus Of Horrors" and they are promising the best in shopping catering, bars, toileting, you name it. A brave ambition indeed. Certainly have all the right intentions and credentials to pull it off though.
So, after all that, back to the point. You can pick up tickets at £55!. Then you can add camping or glamping (oh please let that be as good as it sounds) later. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alt-fest/alt-fest-multi-genre-crowd-led-alternative-festiva . Check it out.
Dale will be and I believe Axel should be back in Blighty on Monday. So hopefully some recording news from the" horse's mouth" ( or should that be "The Dog's Mouth") next week.
Not forgetting they will be returning to live performance on the 13th at "TheDay Of The Dog", featuring a fantastic line up, at The Fishpond, Matlock Bath http://www.facebook.com/BBBLACKDOG/events?ref=ts#!/events/445535842180074//.
A couple a dusty gems ftom the 2008 archive to depart with.
