Ante: Loud as Flux

Friday 13th July 2018
8.30pm – 10.30pm
FREE (Donation for Kirkgate Centre)

There are certain albums that deserve to played really loud…
So we're playing a couple of them, plus maybe a few singles thrown in, on the monster PA system used by Golden Cabinet – just for the fun of it. You are very welcome to join us.
We wanted to play these in the dark but that's tricky in July so we'll have a few projections instead. And a bar of course.
