It was a wish of mine to tell you
A story of a dead nightingale
It was a wish of mine to tell you
The story
Were it not for this lip they cut

– Samih al Qasim

It’s our third Birthday and we’re raising money for the young people in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem. We’re coming together, having a party, and supporting the resistance against the daily injustices of the Israeli occupation. Bring some cash if you can, and chuck it in the bucket. Then, after the party, come to the AFTER PARTY. That’s right, there’ll be an after party in a lock up near by. Ace no?

And as well as that you can enjoy:

wirds being wielded by CAT HEPBURN

hings being said into a microphone by JACKAL TRADES

poems being read by NUALA WATT

tunes being played by RORY OB

bars being spat by TICKLE

and something else from DAVE WATSON

the whole night will be hosted by singer/songwriter extrordinaire NICOLA SIMPSON

then… stroll roon the corner to hear

christmas cabaret banter fae THE BLACK DOVES

ended by tunes fae Fail Better’s very own sound dude FXWLL

Mon doon!

As ever, Fail Better is free, but if you can bring some cash to donate to the Lajee Centre in Aida Refugee Camp, Palestine, then we would really appreciate it. Safe.
