And we have an amazing announcement to make shortly too! * Wildside is not cancelled this Saturday 2 Feb 08. * Anyone who bought tickets in advance will be refunded which will be actioned today. * If you bought tickets directly from the bar of Junktion7 please contact them directly. * We are very pleased and excited to announce that the amazing local heroes Patchwork Grace have kindly stepped in to play on Saturday! * Drugdealer Cheerleader are still playing! * Prices are now £5 on the door and £3 for the club after 11pm. * As a goodwill gesture to anyone who bought tickets in advance, if you bring a print out of your TicketWeb confirmation page you are entitled to £1 off the entry price this Saturday. * And lastly…. a huge Wildside announcement is imminent! That’s right, a real big announcement about an up-coming Wildside show is due any day now once contracts have been signed. I wanted to post this now and I’ve held off posting the above news right now to coincide with this (hopefully softening the blow) but I’m taking no chances shooting my load early and keeping you waiting for news on this Saturdays show – as the way these things go you’ll just have to wait a little bit longer!
