Australian B12 Shot a.k.a. Holly Fluxx is hitting our shores for the first time this January to treat us to a night of popcore, raphop, fun'n'bass, and sparkle-art-noise. The ultra-productive B12 Shot does not limit herself to just making amazing music. She also set up the 'Gooey On The Inside' collective along with Ultra Violet MC. This Melbourne based group promote gigs, organize parties, write, design, and publish zines, and create their own visual art. With upcoming releases on the cards, and a reputation for original, creative, and most of all... Fun live sets, this show looks set to be a monster!

Support on the night comes from...

Attention Bebe, the local legends who dare us not to dance or smile as they play their unique takes on classic pop and dance tracks from the 1990's. You may have caught 'em at some of their recent 'happenings' in the Bernard Shaw, or busking to the Xmas masses on Grafton Street, or on their brilliantly named 'World Tour of Portabello'!.

Other support comes from...

Sixfoot Apprentice, a member of the !Kaboogie gang who've been putting on gigs in Ireland for 3 years now. His sets vary from poptastic bassy booty bounceyness to faster spazzier breaks, but always highly danceable. Expect the unexpected here, with mashups of pop and breakcore, punk and hiphop.

Maryjane, playing midi grunge drum distortion to soundtrack your so-called life.

Check out all tonight musical acts here...

Iheartwillies, Shorter Trousers, Ginge, Eilis and B12 Shot together will be producing a number of black-line illustrations where the objective of the show is to get the audience to finish them. All 5 have a unique style of doodling so the end results should be interesting, covering subjects like the big bang theory and crying celebrities.

On the night there will be 20 A0 prints with 100 markers. The audience will be free to colour the images and add to the drawings as they wish. No image is for sale, and all the art will be given away for free to the first 20 people to arrive to the show.

All the images from the show will be put together in a colouring book format so everyone will have a copy to take home with them.

This is a unique approach to an art show where the viewer has full permission to do what they want, and where scribbling is encouraged.

So come, drink, dance, colour in .....blah blah bluh.
