Oaxaca Solidarity Gig in Liverpool

Outside Next To Nowhere last night, England fans trudged through the streets after their hopes for the desperate glory of international conquest were dashed. Inside, we celebrated internationalism by raising money for some of our current favourite anti-imperialists, those from Oaxaca, Mexico.

The gig, which followed an all-day Zapatista Network gathering, attracted a decent crowd, who witnessed musical performances from Al Baker (self-deprecating but radical 'troubacore'), Alun Parry (folk, in the best sense of the word), and Jo Bywater (cooky acoustic blues). There were also performances from The Mittens, Rick Ash and some DJs, although I was otherwise engaged when they were on and they don't seem to be troubling Google with their presence. Apologies to them and anyone else I missed.

In the weeks to come we have alternative parties for Hallowe'en, Guy Fawkes night and Christmas planned(ish), which will be almost certainly be great, with wonderful music, food and conversation. But we host a wide variety of events at our brand new social centre, so check out the calendar and find something worth going underground for. Or even better, organise your own!
