So here follows the account of Friday's events promised a few days ago. Very much a capital success for everyone involved, starting at the Generator (discussed here on the magazine forum) where Anna Orton and Alan Grieve presented a really impressive show. From there it was on to NEON at the Art Bar, extremely busy and full of revellers who'd made it over from the gallery opening. In circumstances like that DJing is a real pleasure, the crowd being genuinely responsive to the music they're hearing and coming up with all sorts of compliments and questions.

Once we'd finished up and put the records away, then it was time to head for the Function Suite and the Yuck 'n Yum launch party. By the time we'd arrived it was fairly packed with punters who'd made it the next port of call on their itinerary, all clutching their complimentary magazines and all wearing their free badges. The music was excellent and very danceable, by which point I'd had rather a lot to drink and was haranguing people about how Kiss Me Again by Dinosaur really is the best song ever, ever.

So lots of fun was had by all, and Yuck 'n Yum got off to a flyer. All that's really needed to be done now is to try and get the forum off the ground over the next few days.
