We’re really really really really excited to finally be able to tell you about this banging alldayer/exhibition we’ve been cooking up. It’s been a good few months in the oven and has burnt a few of those involved already but we’re confident we can push through and bring you an awesome day. If you scroll down below you’ll find all the info, but long story short, we’ve got 10 of our favourite bands including some new to the Audacious roster. Most of whom will have brand new records and tapes to sell on the day. The day will also feature photography and sound installations that will hopefully paint a fair picture of Sheffield in it’s current “re-development” stage and maybe highlight where public funds could be better used.
Entry fee will be £5 but the venue at the moment is still a little bit of a secret, simply just to keep any unwanted bureaucratic nonsense drifting our way whilst we get everything into place. However we can tell you that it is in an awesome, newly acquired warehouse space down in Sheffield’s old industrial quarter.
More updates will be posted as the date gets clearer, for now you’d best confirm as ‘attending’ on the facebook event below and wait for the go ahead from us next week. Kinda makes it all a bit more exciting don’t ya think?

Showing Sheffield as it really is. Backing neither the contemporary architectural dream leading art groups and the council have, nor the twee past that is often looked back at in awe. A spotlight of reality showing little development or progression, whilst highlighting where the true communities exist, their wants, needs and what is important to them in a city.
