Transmission - Intrepid Fox - July 12
Okay popkids, the estimable Magenta Luxx (Inferno/Black Mass) and Mark 13 (Strength Through Joy/Slaughterhaus 5) have got another Transmission coming up at the Intrepid Fox on 12 July.

Your loyalty will be rewarded with skanky hermaphrodite crackwhores and lubed-up dwarves a fine selection of eighties electro, pop-goth, punk, new wave and such fine and wondrous things, so it'd be great to see y'all, if you can make it.

Thursday is the new Friday, after all...

False alarm
I wanted to tell all the people who are personally involved first before making it public, but I think word is getting around anyway...
VELVET, PERVERSION AND V will not be launching/relaunching as planned. This is due to a load of legal and contractual wrangling that means the whole project has got wrapped up in red tape. Believe me no-one is more disappointed than I am. (on many, many levels.) Velvet especially was my baby and I was really looking forward to getting stuck back into the whole thing. Apologies to anyone who was planning on attending the opening nights or looking forward to having these wicked clubs up and running again.

Sorry people...

I've been given the sad news that Velvet is to be suspended for the time being. Thank you for your support over the last few weeks, as all in attendance knew it was a rocking night, and those who didn't make it at the time should be sorely gutted.
However! All is not lost as we are currently in negotiations with other venues for a new and improved Velvet experience...watch this space!

Spread the word...
Spread the news, my darlings...there is NO VELVET this sunday, the 14th Dec. Due to a previous booking we're being turfed out for the week. But we shall return in all our ass-shakin', booty-slamming glory the week after, on SUNDAY DEC 21ST, when the wicked X-LOVER will be doing a set, along with all the usual madness and a few surprises.
Be there or be square...
