THE LIPSTER.com @ THE FRONT ROOM AT QUEEN ELIZABETH HALL, 7th MARCH
March 7th sees discerning pop culture commentators TheLIpster.com pitch up to curate their first Girl Friday night as part of the regular Friday Tonic series at The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Given their credentials, TheLipster.com knows a thing or two about putting an essential line up together. Edited by Jude Rogers (Guardian/Word) and Rebecca Nicholson (NME/Dazed/Observer), this sassy new pop culture site has lent its name to line ups featuring such rising stars as Those Dancing Days, Thao, Dawn Landes, Errors and Sportsday Megaphone.
Girl Friday as programmed by The Lipster.com will feature live sets from Monade (Stereolab's Laetitia Sadler and Marie Merlet), Piney Gir, Catherine Anne Davies – Emerging Artist in Residence at Southbank Centre - and Docker MC + DJ sets by thelipster.com and George Pringle. Entrance is FREE and the evening will be headlined by a VERY SPECIAL GUEST – details to be announced on www.thelipster.com closer to the event. SIGN UP TO THE SITE TO HEAR FIRST.
The timing of this event couldn't be more apt with International Women's day on March 8th and the official launch of The Lipster.com only weeks away.
Born out of "the desperate need for funny, bold, smart and clever pop culture coverage by women", TheLipster.com serves up daily doses of intelligently written commentary on music, film, books, politics and fashion and boasts an unrivalled cast of writers including; Sylvia Patterson, Miranda Sawyer, Laura Barton and Susanna Forrest. Its objective is simple – to make their readers feel better about themselves and more informed with every click of the mouse.
The website launches in full form in late March 2008 – complete with its own celebrity agony aunt. Sign up for updates: www.thelipster.com
