SUNN O))) vs NEWBLEEP VII
Posted: Sep 10, 2003
SUNN O))) confirmes NEWBLEEP VII on Halloween night (October 31st) in London!
This uncanny Halloween ritual will take place at 291 Gallery on Hackney Road in London. SUNN O))) will perform at 1AM Halloween night. This is SUNN O)))s initiatory gig for the Samhain ritual at ROME WASN'T BURNED IN A DAY November 1st at Lyric, Hammersmith, & one may wish to observe the event as an afterhours for ROME day II...
291 is a renovated 19th century church! The venue is the former church of St. Augustines, a Victorian Neo- Gothic building listed grade II and originally built in 1864. The vicarage was built at the same time and stands adjacent to church. Church Hall built in 1920 used for community and social purposes and is where the SUNN O))) performance will be held.
All buildings used for ecclesiastical/religious purposes from 1864 to 1959 when the church, vicarage and church hall were taken over by the 59 Club in 1959. The 59 Club was started to reform Mods and Rockers and became a famous motor bike club with 10,000 members in its heyday.
The line up is solidifying at the moment, but SUNN O))) is confirmed.
