It’s Valentines Day. The restaurants are booked, theatres are full and there’s nothing on at the cinema… it’s time for something different. On Sunday February 14th Notting Hill Arts Club plays host to two comic book themed events, brought to you by We Are Words + Pictures. After Drop In + Draw join us for…
7.30 – Late: Modern Romance
A night of sunshine pop and four-color mayhem, Notting Hill Arts Club will be filled with comic art and live illustration while the bands play on. Compered by very special guest Robin Ince (The Office, Mock The Week, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Radio 4 regular), the acts include confetti-wielding electro-pop heroes House of Strange, Dogtanion – whose single ‘Heavy Talk’ was one of Drowned in Sound’s ‘Singles of 2009′ – and intergalactic folk hero Judas Zero.
Once the bands have finished the We Are Words + Pictures DJs will play into the night, bringing the likes of M.I.A., Lady Gaga, The Flaming Lips and Los Campesinos! to the dancefloor. If you ask very nicely they might even play a slow dance. For more information visit www.wearewordsandpictures.com and www.nottinghillartsclub.com
