Review

I was pleased with this event because I won the top raffle prize: a wolfgang tillmans photo. I am not just lucky, I bought the most tickets. The reason for this extravaganza was to raise money to help Harry pay a fine that he picked up evading his bus fare on one of the new don't show your ticket buses. Harry was unlucky to be caught in those circumstances.

A number of loud musical acts performed, some with witty lyrics about art and artworld, mostly punky and shouty. My friend was not that impressed with their irony, but I found them amusing. Then a professional comedian performed bravely and as per usual with comedians I was less than amused by the usual mix of observational, and linguistic, jokes. The prize-draw was then performed to my satisfaction. All in all a worthy cause and a good idea (raising money for those not desperately in need) .
