welcome to the rainforest umbrella.......

So after 5 months of warehouse living and multiple parties, we decided to take the plunge and have our first show. Will it be like all the house shows i saw in picture form as a teenager in punk zines? Will the sense of community survive the onslaught of people wanting to get fucked up? Will the police be called? It was a nervous run up, as it was also a fund raiser for PRE, making some cash to help them along on their tour of N.America. Also on the bill was Look Look Dancing Boys and Queen of Swords.
