EGG 2012 - Arm-egg-edon. The amazing egg painting competition!
A charity fundraiser with all proceeds to C.A.L.M - Campaign Against Living Miserably
Established in 2004, this annual Easter Sunday music and arts event combines the sounds of some of Manchesters best underground clubnights and DJs - specialising in bass driven electronic dance music - with the talent of transforming eggs into incredible works of art. Over the years the winning eggs and some condenters have been complete masterpieces. From cigarette smoking ladies, Hitcher from the Mighty Boosh to Eggy 'The Eagle' Eggwards and Bar-egg Obama. The winner from 2011 - Reservoir Eggs was a classic!! All created using a hard boiled egg and the materials supplied. Back in 2005 second place was tragically eaten in a horrific scene of serious... eggs-termination!
This year the annual one and only amazing egg painting competition returns to Joshua Brooks, taking control over the basement.
The music for this years egg-stravaganza will be supplied by the following deck-technicians -
Fiona 'Lil Fee' Daniel is going to be dropping by to whip the crowd into a frenzy with her bag of wicked electro/indie/house music to shake your bones too... let's all get wired together!
