Links round-up 23-26 January: Exhibitions, classes and zombies

Hola, it’s only Monday and there’s already a feast of new things happening this week including new jobs, exhibitions, networking events, evening classes and zombies…


Dawn and the Dead: Notts’ zombie film premiere, 28th January 2010

The greatest story ever told. With zombies. In Nottingham. How could we resist?  Twenty months in the making, the Nottingham (and world, don’t you know) premiere of this Notts’ made movie will be on this Thursday, and tickets are a bargain at just 99p.

Exhibition: Measure and Purpose, Surface Gallery, 9th – 13th February 2010

Left Lion: Interview with Felix
Notts chamber pop startlet Felix is playing at The Social tonight (Mon 25 Jan).  This interview with Lucinda Chua and Chris Summerlin from the band will whet your appetite, including discussing their favourite Nottingham gig experiences. I saw them play at the gig she mentions at All Saints Church for Via Vaudeville‘s pagan May Day festival in 2006, post the maypole dancing and gingerbread eating.  It was quite an awesome event in general, and Felix’s melancholic set was the icing on the van of home-made cakes.

Life in a fish bowl with Matt from Sharabang Music
In A Fish Bowl is an interesting video blog project, with video diaries of start-up entrepreneurs talking about their journey to fulfilling their dreams of owning their own business.  There seems to be a strong East Midlands connection to several of the entrepreneurs.  Matt talks through setting up Sharabang Music – a band management and label for indie artists.  Could we see the next big thing coming out of Notts soon?
