This is a cool little arts venue next to the 491Gallery, spitting distance from Leytonstone tube and within easy access of the N8 bus stop for those of you who are 'ard enuff to stay the distance !
Kicking off at 9pm it's a launch party for Yvette's photography exhibtion, which will be on display at Vertigo for at least a couple of weeks. Live music supplied by: ELECTRICITY COMES FROM OTHER PLANETS (playing their greatest hits in a stripped-down Violent Femmes stylee), NICK NASTY (ex-Flesh For Lulu and currently in Urban Voodoo Machine, playing a special solo electric set) and one-man rock'n'roll show MOAN RED (who has closed many a Brick Lane BYOP). We'll have a healthy smattering of your and our favourite poets from the BYOP roster (and some of their friends) plus a limited amount of first come, first served open-mic slots... all this plus the twisted DJ talents of RANDOM PANIK and NONO...
