was a bring your own booze night with bands and djs which moved venues a bit - i went to blind institute on mappin street and matilda social club.
was defo on last year (2006) i left shef for a bit and on returning can't seem to pick up it's trail...
It still exists in theory but since Matilda was closed they have been homeless.
Any suggestions for viable venues would be very welcome
last one was eb #8 (ckb's album launch) on 27th may 06 at matilda social centre.
like blanky says, we're now homeless after the duplicity of yorkshire forward towards the good people of matilda.
we may have *something* in the pipeline, although we're still on the look out for a sheffield venue.
if anyone can think of anywhere; safe, secure, unlicensed, with a stage type area, capable of fitting 200+ folks in, fairly central with the possibility of two rooms (although not essential), get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
i guess you can see why we've not had a night for a while now.

hope to see you at an eb in '07. soon.
thanks for the info, and good luck with finding a new home. it's an ace night. sorry to say that i'm not surprised that you've been skanked by yorkshire forward though.
I thought it was called 'Electric Blunket'; if you are looking for venues, try Affinity; they have got a new downstairs room which is not used in the early part of the week and they might welcome an 'alternative' night. also, Lion's Lair as far as I remember are available for private functions on some nights.
