MUSEUMS LAUNCH

Very finally we are launching MUSEUMS ONE, next monday will be the pinnacle moment of the past nine months, the coming of spring and comes almost exactly a year after the launch of WE ARE YOUNG AND WE ARE TRYING. The ground floor of TROF (Fallowfield) will be occupied by a GOOD GRIEF distribution stall; a BAKESALE in honour and support of Zimbabwean street children (you are invited and encouraged to bring cakes to add to the table, all proceeds will be sent with love to people who need it more than we do); a pile of the first edition of MUSEUMS, hot off the press and available for the first time to all; & BEAT UNHAPPENING DJs spreading the good vibrations, which is a regular thing on a Monday night. If you were to go upstairs at 8 o'clock, you will be able to watch Beautiful Losers, this will be the first (to our knowledge) public screening of the documentary film by Aaron Rose in Manchester, it is absolutely necessary viewing and we are excited to be sharing it with you.

It will be part one of three celebratory events, the second part will be a week and a bit later at COMFORTABLE ON A TIGHTROPE'S show at TROF NQ, where La La Vasquez, Girls Names, Former Bullies and Waiters are playing live, all of whom are present on the compilation tape of the same curatorial background. It will be a party not to be missed. 
The final installment will come part way through May (shortly after sounds from the other city) at ISLINGTON MILL. Thanks to the SALFORD ZINE LIBRARY, every single one of the fanzines from the STOMACH PUMP archive will be on display, alongside their extensive collection of contemporary zines and art books, an exhibition of originals will also be on show including work from MUSEUMS itself.
