We've got lots of flyers here, and it'd be a shame to see them go to waste, and I find it hard to get out and about a lot of the time..

Midian wants you, yes you!
If you are a photographer, reviewer, radio DJ etc, then we need you. Midian is hosting an all day eXtra event on 29th July in Liverpool. The focus of this is on cross-promotion of the wonderful array of talented folk that make up the UK goth scene, including artists, writers, promoters, bands, photographers, publishers, models, DJs, creators of fantastic clothing, accessories and acoutrements!
We're looking for anyone interested in covering it in any way, to help showcase some of the fabulous people we're going to be featuring on the day. We can organise a day pass for people who register interest before the event. We can also provide links via our website to anyone officially taking part on the day. Please note, no requests for press/photography will be accepted on the day itself. Any requests for interviews to be made in advance. Press release available upon request. In exchange we ask is that any official photographers allow for us to potentially use copies of their pictures on our website (with full credits to them and links etc).
We're also looking to promote as many events, nights, photographers, shows, artists, bands, websites, models, performers and businesses that fall under the 'goth' banner as we can. To this end we are actively encouraging people to send us in flyers, business cards, posters etc that we can display and put around at the event.
Also, if anyone would be willing to take some of our flyers to help promote the event, it'd be much appreciated. Again, please contact the e-mail below with a snail mail address and details of how many you can distribute.
Any interested parties please contact myself in the first instance with details to:
More details of the event are available in the following places:
Just as a bit of advance notice, to start saving some pennies for the Midian eXtra 29th July. Here's a taster of some of the stallholders we'll be playing host to:
Anne Sudworth & Storm Constantine. As well as signings/ appearances, they will be hosting stalls, at which you'll be able to purchase some of their work including books and prints. Storm will also have books available from Immanion Press
Xero Photography will be selling original prints, as well as displaying work.
Uninvited Guest will have a merch stand, at which you'll be able to purchase their scrummy CD as well as t-shirts and the like.
Forever In Black
Morgana's Lair (Quiggins Liverpool)
Fangs, Fetish & Fantasy
I'm so looking forward to this...
Incidentely, we're on the look out for a couple of reliable volunteers to model as part of one of the fashion shows. For the purposes of this particular requirement, we're after females who are between UK size 10-14, and would fit in size 24"-30" inch corsets. You'll gain free entry to the event, get to dress up in some gorgeous finery, and even have some professional photography shots taken whilst modelling the clothing. Any serious volunteers please contact myself in the first instance on: sistercarrion[at]midian[dot]org[dot]uk ASAP
Please no timewasters as all prospective models will be working closely with the business concerned to help showcase their beautiful designs.
We're also after reliable bods who would be willing to do a spot on the front door duty on the day. This will be in the same room as all the action. If enough people help out, we should be able to ensure that each stint would only last an hour. This would just be to help out so that people on the door will be able to rotate breaks and get to see some of what's going on instead of getting a numb bum!
I'm very pleased to be able to finally announce the following...
As part of our fun all-day eclectic Midian eXtra event on Saturday July 29th, the evenings' entertainment will be rounded off by the dulcet tones of the following live music acts:
Fresh from their rip-roaring set at this years' Beyond the Veil IV, these guys will be performing a headline set for us. If you've never caught them before, you've got to catch them at this date. On the verge of the bigtime, be up close and personal while you still have the chance!
Supporting Uninvited Guest, we have a very special guest support in the form of :
Miss 616 will already be very familiar to some of you as the mistress and mastermind behind 616 Abortions (ex Squid), and in her other roles as organiser, promoter and DJ at the fabulous Dark-cide and Electo-cide nights in Preston. Over the past few years, we've been very lucky to have had the excellent 616 Abortions play for us, as well as Miss 616 providing us with top tunes in her role as guest DJ on several occasions. This gig will see her performing a a rare solo set, including covers, some new songs, and even maybe one or two 616 Abortions ditties.
There'll be a wide range of entertainment, fun and festivities throughout the day including art displays, fashion show, DJs, stalls, and even goth karaoke! Stay tuned for more details appearing very soon! The idea behind this event is to cover the wide range of delights that goth 'culture' has to offer up, some of which can sometimes feel a little sidelined.
If you wish to be involved in any way in the event, there's still time. Whether you're an artist, photographer, writer, performer, stallholder, DJ or stage hand we'd love to hear from you. There's no fee for stallholders, and we're pretty flexible in terms of display room, and times for getting in and out of the venue.
Midian eXtra is running in addition to the normal Midian clubnight in July, which has been brought forward a little to accomodate the lack of a Midian date in June. Check the links below for up to date news, directions, dates and times. Midian eXtra will be taking place on the afternoon and evening of Saturday 29th July @ Bar De Mille, Paramount Buildings, Fraser Street, Liverpool L3 8JX The venue is right next door to the National Express coach station, with national train links being quite close nearby. Parking is available on the car park across the road from the venue.
