An afternoon of Metal, Punk, Acoustic Music, Fine Ales, BBQ grub and getting sand in your knickers…
For over a thousand years Dj Trev has been answering the question «will you ever do another Bottom of the Bottle?» with mumbled incoherence and vague recrimination… But that's pretty much just how he responds to everything these days.
When local charity Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre
offered him a slot at their Urban Beach Installation (part of Knaresborough's FEVA Festival), of all the half-arsed projects he toys with doing, a grown up «family» style version of Bottom of the Bottle was the one he thought would cost him least money.
Rather than doing a tragic reunion in a nightclub (and nothing to do with the fact that there are no nightclubs left that would let him) Dj Trev
didn't want to just do something looking over his shoulder — he does that enough watching for the Taxman. He wanted to put something together that moved things on.
Given that most people who went to Bottom of the Bottle HAVE actually moved on, this made a lot of sense to his addled mind, so here is what he proposes:
A family afternoon, with a bar and a BBQ, but instead of a few local bands you only watch if your mate is in, some acoustic acts performing SONGS YOU KNOW, whilst Dj Trev does the usual bit of playing records you sort of like, I guess.
Bring your kids!
Bring your gran!
Bring your earplugs!
This is a free event, and Henshaw's will be raising money for their vital work with a fully liscenced bar and comprehensive BBQ, so please be prepared to come and put some money in their tills, that is how this works — let's face it, we all know Dj Trev will be wrangling some money out of it to buy more of his space dollies, and indeed, when Dj Trev isn't talking about himself in the third person, he also runs a pub quiz every Sunday night at 10 Devonshire Place
, and i just WONDER if you can work out what the theme will be on this particular Sunday…
