Barfly gig sold out (update)

UPDATE: The gig has now sold out.

The Lightyears’ gig with the Mystery Jets at the Camden Barfly on Thursday 21 August is looking set to sell out – so if you don’t yet have your tickets, it is strongly advised that you visit the Barfly website and pick some up before it’s too late. 

Over 130 tickets have already been sold for the show and the remainder are expected to disappear pretty sharpish when the Jets officially announce the gig on their site next Monday 18 August. 

The gig, organised and masterminded by Quiroga Promotions, will be raising funds for the Global Exchange programme (run jointly by Voluntary Service Overseas and the British Council). The aim of the programme is to create “Active Global Citizens” and to encourage people to start thinking of the world as a whole unit, rather than a place that is divided by cultural or territorial barriers.

An extensive line-up of DJs has just been added to the bill and so, following sets from the Mystery Jets and the LYs, the venue will be throwing a full-on aftershow party featuring Tapedeck DJs, Fallout DJs, Yes Sir Idol and Dead Meat DJs. We’ll be having it LARGE. Don’t get left behind….
