RAISETHEROOF: WATCH THIS SPACE

First, feast your eyes this super video by Silent Cartel that captures raisetheroof performances and odd happenings and spits them out to the awesome Wonkamix by DJM:

It’s been almost five years since the first raisetheroof in Leeds at the Brudenell Social Club, organised with the help of Oblong Community Centre and a Burley Can Do grant of five hundred pounds. Since then we’ve had immense fun upping the game and bringing together a regular urban festival and a mad mixture of art, music and mayhem at Leeds West Indian Centre. We were delighted when our friends at Love Music Hate Racism came on board to help take a stand against the BNP in Ocotber 09 and we hope to continue our allegiance with the campaign long into the future!

INTRODUCING AREA 3

You can expect something extra special for our fifth birthday celebration on the 8th of October 2010, Leeds West Indian Centre. We are introducing a third area which extends far into the carpark, and will be dedicated to showcasing the work of visual artists, quirky games and free workshops. With funding bids underway and the likes of Don’t Panic and the Ladybird Project on board, this will be a special addition to the usual roster of mayhem.

LEEDS: RAISETHEROOF NEEDS YOU

In order to keep improving our festival we want feedback and suggestions from anyone who has been to raisetheroof and has an opinion – what things do you want to change, or stay the same? What bands have you enjoyed the most at raisetheroof? Who do you want to see take the stage (or command the decks!) in 2010? Are there any ideas for art installations or quirky features you want to see happen? Let us know and maybe you will – reply here or email nadineraisetheroof@gmail.com.

OR, MAKE THEM HAPPEN YOURSELF

Anyone can input, help out and get involved. We will be hosting open informal meet-ups to discuss the running of the night, email roxyraisetheroof@gmail.com if you’re interested in coming along.
