Single Cell October 2009 Update

Featured event:

Saturday 31st October; Freaks, Ghouls and Graves…
Oh golly, we’re back – and this time we not only are we bringing you the finest live band in Birmingham – the 15-piece punk klezmer outfit known as The Destroyers, we’ve also teamed up with local heroes Single Cell for another diabolical night of Halloween naughtiness in the fabulous St Margaret’s Church. Tenner in – all of which goes to a very special cause…


The Destroyers

The mighty DJ Xander (Planet X, Romp, Flux) & the predictably casual Lazy Susan (Stumblefunk).

Sound by Stumblefunk, lights by Monkey Puzzle, installations by Bigger Bang, bar by Jam St Cafe.

All proceeds go to providing safe drinking water to the Kailash Children’s Hostel, Nepal and other communities in the Kathmandu Valley. In memory of Lynette Ghilks Mahoney.
