SUCK MY LEFT ONE - FRIDAY 26TH MAY @ SOUL CIRCUS (159 Lower Briggate, Leeds LS1 6LY) £3 IN 10PM-3AM
so the phono died but then those (ir)responsible for the grrrl-centric Pussy Whipped, trashy-queer-indie Razzmatazz club nights, and DIY Manifesta collective, decided to join forces = SUCK MY LEFT ONE
We are the bored scene agitators, DIY feminist/queer cultural activists, zine-devotees, ladyfesters, radical knitters, faithful dancers, mix tape lovers, house party losers, and we are not cool. We want a place where pleasure, politics and music mingle in one space, where voices of dissent lie over beats, synchronised dance routines and alcoholic drinks. We think musical genres were made to be ripped, cut up, and pasted back in ways that leave us begging for more, from queercore, riot grrrl, punk, rock n roll, electro-pop-queer-beat, to indie-trash-glam-randomness. It's the sound of the bedroom dancefloor revolution as we play songs that make your heart beat just that little bit faster. We want to create a space free from the intimidating, hipster, leeds-as-next-big-thing, dress coded, soul-sucking, profit-making mediocrity. Hegemony = enemy. They can just go and Suck Our Left One.
We welcome ladies, gentlemen, grrrls and queers of all genders, persuasions, shapes and sizes to dance recklessly without fear of ridicule, twat-titude or evaluation.
