The Mission 'Farewell' Support Acts Announced + Official Aftershow Party Details

Wow - good news on the support front for The Mission farewell gigs - they have different bands supporting them every night! And some good ones I'd really like to see (or see again in some cases)  to boot :)

Mission UK Farewell concerts February 2008:
Wed 27th: London Shepherds Bush Empire (with special guests The Sisters Of Murphy/Dead Guitars)
Thur 28th: London Shepherds Bush Empire (with special guests The Claytown Troupe)
Fri 29th: London Shepherds Bush Empire (with special guests Balaam & The Angel and the Dragons)
Sat 1st: London Shepherds Bush Empire (with special guests Miles Hunt from The Wonderstuff)

They've also announced that the 'Official' Aftershow party will be taking place on Friday 29th February at Club AntiChrist.

Club Antichrist in London UK opens its doors for 'The Second Coming of Sin' on February 29th and we are proud to announce our official Mission U.K. after show party will be held within the club.

As this is the 29th and it's a leap year this is the night where the girls get to ask (demand) the boys to do anything and everything they want. This also includes an exclusive DJ set from Mission guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite after the Shepherd Bush concert. Mark will be spinning some of his Metalmorphosis remixes plus previously unreleased material and exclusives.

Club Antichrist is a sumptuous beast of a club spread over 6 floors offering you (and us!) a myriad of delights and debauchery! Highlights include:The Hellfire Room - 8 hours of Gothic and alternative anthems.Theatre of Sin - 8 hours of fetish, circus, side shows and theatre and performances..

The Industrial Dance Arena - 8 hours of industrial from some of London and Europe's finest Industrial DJs
The Venue - 4 Bands: Skeletal Family, Spit Like This and Uberbyte (more to be confirmed)
The Devil's Playroom - Fully equipped dungeon.
Smoking Zone - Satisfies even the most hardened nicotine addicts!
Confessional Box- Come confess your sins and maybe pay penance!

Expect 8 hours of top fetish and circus performers in our Theatre of Sin. Expect a dungeon with Mistress Rebekka our house dominatrix.
Expect 2 continuous dance floors - an Industrial Dance zone and our Hellfire Room (alternative, goth, industrial and varied DJ sets)
and a newly added dance floor from 3am!!
Expect alternative fashion shows and stalls, 5 bands, Satan's Strip Show (with real alternative strippers),
private outdoor smoking area, prizes for the best dressed/best dancers.

Basically expect one HELL of a club! Club AntiChrist truly is a hybrid fusing the best elements from the Goth scene, Fetish Clubs and mixing in Theatre, walkabout performances and some of the finest bands around.

Now this doesn't thrill me too much as the club is expensive and not one I particulary fancied after reading the reports of the last one on many friends LJs. However it seems the club rules are going to be a lot tighter from now on and won't allow fat naked men to wander round the club playing with themselves. Having been to a fetish club or two in the past and having seen what the majority of people who go to them are like I can only say this is a very very good thing. I'll add here that I find fetish clubs pretty piss poor in general (in the limited exposure I've had of them).

Anyway, I'm not sure if we're still going to be running our proposed 'Unofficial' Mission Aftershow party on Saturday 1st March or not at present. I'll have to talk to my co-conspirators and sort things out one way or another. I'm still very much up for it though as after the last ever gig (sob) I'm probably going to be in dire need of a party and booze to help cheer me up (although after four days of gigging I may be a tad worse for wear already!!!)
