The Secret Wars Euro League is coming to an end - The live art battle which boasted 17 European cities has only a few left and guess what....Southampton are still in it!!
Come on Southampton!!!!
Being the only team in the whole competition to lose only one battle, means team Southampton is a real threat and a serious contender to go all the way!! I think it was Samuel Jackson that said in the movie Coach Carter, "Just because we deserve to win, doesn't mean they're going to let us"! Great film and wise words.
So we need all the support we can get!! Remember as well as the judges votes, there's a crowd vote, which is where you guys come in!
There's some serious artistic talent on show, Amsterdam I bringing the big guns. You only have to google these names to get a load of stats and images - Mr K, Wayne Horse, Sjoco Sjon, Via Via, Zender and Chaz from the infamous London Police!!
But Southampton are more than capable of taking them out. Led by team Captain Hicks 54 (www.flickr.com/hicks54), Zadok, Gustav, Mr Dead, Sobac and Smurph are ready and waiting.
We're moving the event from our usual Thursday night slot to a Saturday night - SATURDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER!!
We're also changing the venue - The Monument Gallery -
The historic Bargate Monument, in central Southampton is run by arts organization 'a space'. The organisation strives to provide opportunities for emerging artists and audiences in
Southampton and the surrounding regions to make and engage with
high quality artistic experiences.
So just to clarify, that big castle in the middle of town, is a Gallery and YES you can go inside it. Due to the size, space is very limited, so make sure you arrive nice and early to avoid any kind of heartbreak.
Date: Saturday 25th September 2010
Where: The Monument Gallery (Opposite The Addict Store)
Time: doors open at 7pm - space is limited, so arrive early!
Price: £5 entry!

Made You Look
All very talented and eager to experience Secret Wars in its fullest. Day 1 saw Spit Sega, Made You Look, Jojenk and Kozin progress to the semis to be held on Day 2. Whilst the battles were on, there were a range of activities and performances from some of the best extreme sports stars from around the world. There was also a chance for young and eager artists to get involved under artist supervision to learn more about SW as well as a chance to pick up a some paint and 'have a go'.
Reeps 1 showed up and blew the crowd away with his range of sounds. I can honestly say, Reeps pulled a bigger crowd then the Red Arrows and RAF put together.
In the end, artists 'Made You Look' and 'Spit Sega' made it to the final on Day 3, where after a 1-1 decision by the judges, it was left to Andy (Whiteair organiser) to make the tough choice. The Secret Wars Whiteair Champion went to....Spit Sega. A big congrats and a big thanks to everyone that took part and showed their support!
