The Acid Ballet launch The Ballet Club at The Craufurd Arms

The Acid Ballet headline The Craufurd Arms on Friday night (August 4) with the first of a planned quarterly new project, called the Ballet Club.

It’s a novel concept for the area, with those behind it promising exclusive merchandise, a ‘theatrical performance that can’t be taken anywhere else…’ and ‘a carefully planned assault on every sense, to fully immerse you into the world we’ve created.’

“It’s taken us half a year.  It’s ready.  We hope you enjoy it,” they say.

To get things off to a flying start, Solace In Nightmares will stage step with gothic atmosphere, theatrical and scream-along anthems.

James Shaw, once called ‘Ben Howard meets Nine Inch  Nails’ will get a platform for his compelling songs too, with a promise they’ll chew on every heart string…

The Radio Decade, an atom bomb of art punk and chaos draw influences from grunge, Brit Pop, 60s pop and 70s punk rock.

And of course, to top the lot off, The Acid Ballet will sizzle.

‘Smear your lipstick, wear something your mother will hate and come join the club,’ they invite. 

Sounds perfect.  Tickets are six quid on the door, and the first 20 through on the night will receive a black envelope.

What, if anything, it’ll contain, we don’t know….
