Fantastic Doug and the Cupcake Club – is a (“totally fab!”) musical pop group created in the basement Studio of the Youth Center.
— “Wow, the Cupcake Club? Yeah man they’re totally ‘off the hook’!”
— “You like the Cupcakes??! How ‘INDY’ and ‘DIFFERENT’!”
— “Woooooah dudes I was at the Cupcake Club show on Friday and they were so tight I got a hemmorhoid! And my face melted off!!!! True story”
See what I mean….?
The Warm Feelings – wizards , magic and dreams fortold by a mystical sage to dominate rock ‘ n ‘roll for one night only. Come witness the power drums and guitar can channel from dancing on the dead bones of bon scott and kurt cocaine.
The Mistakes – These guys really haven’t the faintest idea how be a successful rock and roll outfit. It’s been one drama after another over the last (god is it almost) five years. Including on stage implosions, due to excessive levels of intoxication, break ups due to unbearable levels of homo-erotic tension in the band room, a pure inability to sing correctly or even play their instruments, it has been an uphill battle for these guys. Their continuing existence is testimony to their high self-appreciation of their own particular brand of half-cocked, shambolic-punk, post-rock, almost-art, pop-n-roll, hard-wank, mess. That said one almost gets the feeling that one day, somewhere, someone may flip a coin and BAM! The Mistakes may become a credible band. But probably not
plus the HOBO PRESS ZINE launch!!

the Carl Dewhurst Trio!
Carl Dewhurst – guitar
Cameron Undy – bass
Evan Mannell – drums
Carl’s trio explore the fine lines of improvising in and out of time/tune/taste. Fortune favours the wrong. Yin/Yang says at it’s worst it’s best, at it’s best it’s bad. And we all know bad is good.
*” In this age of convergent politics and convergent art it’s refreshing to know anarchy still has a champion, and his name is Carl Dewhurst. …he is such a pure, intuitive improviser… Like a liquid, Dewhurst fills any context, but never blandly so. “*

Black Rose will be screening Battle In Seattle. A hollywood version of the intense and inspiring events of 1999 when the World Trade Organisation (WTO) meetings in Seattle were shut down by a large cross-section of the american community – families, unions, lawyers, eco-activists, anti-racist groups and anarchists 🙂 protesting the existence of the WTO amidst volleys of rubber bullets and tear gas from riot squad police.
