NO:ID Club: Be Your Own Art Night


Starting on June 4th, we are hosting the Thursday night, right after the private view of the gallery. It's an amazing space we're developping here - we'll have the performances in the gallery, or, if we need more space, in Cafe Fresh next door, or, if we need even more, in the large hall...

At present, it's a member's only thing, so expect the unexpected. Here is what we expect from you: be your own art. You know NO:ID is about defying, defining, defending and deflecting identity, so please dress up.

We will astonish you with the most unexpected in music, spoken word, performance and video art in a cabaret variety night of the special twist. Remember that there are no boundaries between the arts - we will present performances, films, music, etc. in this special venue.

A reasonable door take will give you no:id membership patches for this and future events.

June 4th at Alhambra 9pm - 12pm
