Tempa T - London 2012
It’s that time of the month again. It goes like this: we celebrate the release of a new issue by throwing a bunch of parties around the country and you all come and barf on the floor.
This month the parties are going on tour, The VICE Party Tour, to be exact. We’re taking our rolling carnival of music and amateur hedonism to the road. All the music will be provided by people including Tempa T, Stay+, Mmoths, Solar Bears, Breton, Holy Esque and a stream of other talent.
The showcase will be hitting the cities of Leeds, Bristol and Manchester on the 30th of May, London (aspecial Tempa T show at the Old Blue Last), Newcastle and Nottingham on the 31st of May and, finally,Brighton, Birmingham and Glasgow on the 1st of June. You can see full details and line up for each showhere, where you can also sign up for free drinks tokens for the London show.
Each of this month’s parties is FREE TO GET IN TO, apart from Birmingham, where our Issue Launch Party will be taking place at The Rainbow in association with Showcase Festival Part II.
Soon, London will have to decide who its Mayor will be for the next four years. If it was left up to the stuffy political elite, Londoners would only have the uninspiring choices of the incumbent “bendy bus” Boris, “congestion charge” Ken, “racist” Carlos Cortiglia and “friend of sad guitarist Brian May” Jenny Jones. All told, it’s a pretty depressing set of choices, but don’t fear ‘cos one man’s riding to the rescue of this once-great city with a view to leading it back to greatness. His name? Tempa T, aka “London’s next Mayor”.
