| Leeds, UK : A-Spire alive again !
Aspire, Leeds’ occasioanl squat venue for gigs, cafe, parties, radical films, arty space and all manner of other cool things that the corporate world denies us is back for a fourth bout of smart stuff.
This coming Saturday, 20th April, it opens at noon with the cafe, creative art workshops and healing workshops. From 5pm there’s a bunch of radical films, from 10pm till who knows when it goes mental with a floor of psychedelic trrance, a flor of dub and a massive and beautiful chillout room.
On the Sunday, given that everyone will need something cosy after Saturday night, there’s a screening of Dougal & The Blue Cat, a feature-length film Magic Roundabout.
Then from 5pm there’s acoustic cabaret, which last time was frankly the best one of that sort of thing I’ve ever seen. This one features the return of Captin Hotknives and a rare live performance from Slumberwall. It’s also open mic, so feel free to get up and do your thang too.
Then from Wednesday there’s a more ongoing Aspire opening, with cafe, films, workshops, music, direct action, radical book/record fair, etc, etc.
