Join the Pin Ups Boffins as we take a break from trying to fix the Large Hadron Collider to provide an evening of elemental entertainment!
We’ve snared Angelos Epithemiou from Vic n Bob's legendary BBC2 series Shooting Stars to come along with his wheels of steel to treat you to disco tracks and words of wisdom! We're not quite sure what is going to happen, but we are certain that Angelos's visit is going to provide us with some fairly legendary scenes. Check out everybody's favourite burger van proprietor turned DJ in action on the decks at Shooting Stars - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNZ1j2h-zsE
We've booked up B-Movie Junkies (http://www.myspace.com/bmoviejunkies ), Paws (http://www.myspace.com/pawspawspawspaws ) and Heart Beats (http://www.myspace.com/weareheartbeats ) to play live. We're not for one second suggesting any of these bands are geeks, but, between the 3 of them there is enough knowledge of cult cinema, vintage synths, beards, wild behaviour and 80s guitar FX pedals to assure us that the Geek theme is going to be embraced with gusto!
We're going to turn the Flying Duck's Kitchen into The Lab, a haven of mathematical and scientific endeavour with lots of geeky props (Rubik's cubes, test tubes etc) and a suitably inspiring soundtrack (think "Race for the Prize" (Flaming Lips), "In the Garage" (Weezer), "Through Being Cool" (Devo), "She Blinded Me With Science" (Thomas Dolby), something by We Are Scientists – you get the idea - requests are very welcome), and who knows, Albert Einstein may even make an appearance on the decks!
You will also have to make sure you visit Area 51, a mysterious area dedicated to scientific shops, props and shocks (we don’t want to give too much away about this, it will be fairly mindboggling if we get hold of even half the stuff we’re thinking about).
There will also be lots of geeky prizes for those who dress up in a geeky fashion and/or or can prove to us that they are studying a geeky course at Uni - matric cards will be inspected! And in keeping with the studious scientific theme, Jagermeister Test Tube shots will be on sale all night long for just £1.50.
We hope Geek Night will be as much of a hit as last September's Circus ( http://www.pinup-nights.co.uk/gallery/t ... p?album=46 ) which was a total sell-out over 400 folk in attendance. If it's even half as a good as that then we are going to have a terrific night!
Cheers for reading, and if you like the sound of the Geek Night action please spread the word.
