This month we were really, really lazy about Eagle Legs, and we'd like to apologise by announcing that the next event (on the 19th December) will be an EAGLE LEGS XMAS EXTRAVAGANZA! Even though we're still planning all the details, we're hoping to include mulled wine, zines, cake, an xmas-themed playlist, decking the walls and general xmas cheer! As soon as plans are finalised, we'll do an official post on here, so keep checking back.

We also have some extra special news that was announced yesterday - on the night of the January Eagle Legs (on the 16th) MEN will be playing downstairs in the Freebutt! If MEN are new to you, in short they comprise of JD Samson (LE TIGRE), Michael O'Neill (Ladybug Transistor, Princess) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR, The Ballet), with input from Johanna Fateman (LE TIGRE) and artist Emily Roysdon. The band describe themselves as a "a band & art/performance collective that focuses on the energy of live performance and the radical potential of dance music. MEN speaks to issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and demanding liberties through lyrical content and an exciting stage show". If anyone is familiar with Le Tigre or any of their previous bands, then you'll have a good idea of what these artists are capable of creating. We're a bit too excited about this, and may have to leave you now for a little lie-down to compose our fangirl-selves.

Southampton Craft & Zine Fair

Southampton is welcoming their first ever zine fest, in the shape of the Southampton Craft and Zine Fair, taking place over the weekend of the 21st & 22nd November at The Arthouse Gallery Cafe (178 Above Bar Street, SO14 7DW).

We really wanted to make it but have to be in Brighton for the next Eagle Legs clubnight (on the Saturday night), but would urge anyone living in or near Southampton to go along and join in the fun! Being a Salisbury girl I know it's rare to have these kinds of events around the mid South, so this is one not to miss.

Here's what they say about the event:

"Hip crafts meets subversive (and not so subversive) literature at Southampton's first (feel free to correct me on this one) zine and craft fair. 12-5pm both Saturday and Sunday. Stalls and workshops will be upstairs to browse and shop, whether for you or for Christmas presents for your nearest and dearest. Plus, as always, the Art House will be serving their super scrumptious cakes and lunch."

Sounds delicious!

The organisers still have stalls available to any zinesters wanting to take part, so drop them a line at for forms etc. And help to spread the word! Facebook event is HERE
