"All the sales girls in the flash boutiques are made to dress the same and have the same make-up, representing the 1940's. In fashion as in everything else, capitalism can only go backwards -- they've nowhere to go -- they're dead. The future is ours. Life is so boring there is nothing to do except spend all our wages on the latest skirt or shirt. Brothers and Sisters, what are your real desires?" - Angry Brigade Communique #8, May, 1971 A special Postpunk Happy Hour featuring all new music. No golden oldies, no "club classics" - all newer songs. (2008 is almost 8 years -- almost a decade -- ago, which is a long time, so a lot of this isn't exactly the newest of the new, either!!) Postpunk Happy Hour is every Monday from 6-10pm at the Crown and Harp, downstairs. 21+, no cover. $2 wells, $3 domestics, $4 craft pints. Din-din is available from the bar, too! (Supplied by Daddy Jack's next door. Viz: Fish 'n chips, chicken wings, cheddar fries, shrimp & chips, fried ravioli, etc., etc.). Come after work, have a drink, and enjoy the music. Or go home, change, and come out and have a drink! This edition will be curated by Oliver Sheppard (Death Church) of Wardance & Folk Division as well as maestro Gary Evans. Examples of past DJs' playlists are here:
Immediately after the Postpunk Happy Hour is the Outward Bound Mixtape Sessions event, which goes from 10pm - 2am.
