Bank Holiday Bonanza

It's been a long weekend.
And I am thankful for it.
Friday saw a visit to The Hobbit on Beavois Valley for some Math/Post/Noise-rock entertainment. A final show and fairwell for Southampton band El Colosso. Playing with them was The Psyche Out Musikland Big Band and Brother Francisco.

Saturday saw an evenings art and entertainment as The Bargate gallery opened its doors for Testing Grounds.

Sunday was all about Osfest at the Osbourne in Shirley. Which concluded at nice broad spectrum of culture!

Now, I know it's pretty pointless me telling you all this now, but here's something for the future:

Music In The City
It's going to be a long game for these guys. They are building up momentum for events in 2010. So get involved, find out what you can do! I know I will...

A few things with Southampton contributions

I made a trade tonight.

A straight swap of access to a Southampton stranger's literary offerings for details of a live event that keeps me drawing bad sketches, and not being ashamed of them.

Part A) is the Literature. Elephant Words
Part B) is the illustration. Log Jam

I hope you enjoy.

Welcome one and all.

EjectorSeat. Promoting and Celebrating Arts Culture in the South.
Our Aim: To connect and develop elements of culture in the South. We are promoters based on the South Coast of England. Please feel free to look around these pages to see what we’ve got coming up.

Our History: EjectorSeat was formed to promote the things we love. Our first event was to put on an amazing band, and get the best local acts to support. The band was 65daysofstatic, no other promoters in Southampton would have taken the chance on them. But the gig was a success! And meant that 65dos kept coming back for more. This started a thirst for bringing the best new bands to Southampton, who were genuinely sincere and trying something a bit different, holding the cream of local developing talent in support. After 5 years of securing the best touring bands, and helping local artists develop, we decided we needed to evolve and try and do more for other local artists.
Our Arts Festival was born. Which is what this blog is going to be detailing. We are developing on our humble beginnings, and expanding to include music from the Band Stand, a Cinema Tent, and Arts Market (representing Southampton’s best emerging talent) and room for much more. To find out more, keep on eye on this site, or contact us direct: info at ejectorseat. co. uk

We are on myspace, LastFM, and Facebook... join us!
