NEIGHBOURHOOD :: THE BLACK SEEDS :: 28/07/05

There are only a few hundred tickets left for this show, which marks the start of their European tour.

Hours: 8pm til 2am – the band should be onstage around 9.30pm (please note time change).

Tickets are £10 in advance from Ticketweb (08700 600 100) -http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=uk&query=detail&event=129471.
Also available at the Spacific Big Chill Bar session on 13th July – look for the sign.
