I don’t want to come across like an advert for football on Sky, but there are three things happening in Birmingham this weekend and they’re all (to coin a phrase) kind of a big deal:
- Project X Presents (Sat 13th, 8pm to 3am) – this promises to be very cool indeed.Â Comedy, music, visuals, weird buzzing boxes… A new city centre venue to explore, sensible drink prices and only a tenner.Â Check out the website for pics of how it’s all been coming together over the past week.
- Of All The People In All The World (today, 6.30pm until 5 Oct) – Stan’s Cafe bring their big, crazy and thought-provoking show to Birmingham.Â “112 tonnes of rice â€“ 6.7 billion grains â€“ one for everyone on the planet”.
- Artsfest (all weekend) – the UK’s biggest arts festival.Â If you can’t find anything to enjoy then… well, I don’t know.Â It’s not as if people haven’t been trying to help you find the good stuff.
There’ll probably be some collective memory shenanigans coming up so if you go to any of these things and take photos/video/blog about them then chuck a link here and it’ll go into the pot.
Oh, and tag anything Stan’s Cafe-related with ‘thericeshow’ for it to feed into the clever little website for The Rice Show.
