Thanks to the many of you that showed up at last months edition. Also big thank you to Christiaan and Jeroen of Nohmada, Friso and all the other goodhearted yet unnmamed people that helped us in making the party as it happened.
pretty please ps: peek below for some pics of last month!
This month’s Rebel Up! Soundclash will be in aid of the cyclone catastrophy in Myanmar. As overheard on Belgian news that donations from the West have been far below an average level of aid, we at Rebel Up! want to raise immediate awareness for the current conditions in Myanmar! Our eye has fallen on Myanmar Charity Group as the charity for the night.
The goal that MCG have in their Cyclone Recovery project is to give out family packs on which a family of 5 can live on for 1 month. We hope our night can buy a lot of those family packs, so please spread the word and check their website http://www.myanmarcharitygroup.org/
What MCG hqs to say about on which level they stand within the country and its network:
‘MCG already has established local networks inside Burma to effectively distribute the funds to the cyclone victims and we will not run into obstacles like other international NGOs are facing. Dr. Yin Min Thein, Han Thi Oo, and May Thu Wint who are Myanmar Charity Groupâ€™s representatives in Burma, will be organizing and distributing the necessary items.’
About musical matters….
This saturday we will have a special guest from Poland who will bring his Vega Selecta sound of old skool reggae with buddhist trance rituals and easter european folk and so on. Good! The usual trio of Rebel Up dj’s will also play their tricks and picks, plus again special VJ guests providing visual counterpoints to the soundwave soup to be absorbed by the eyes. Quite so.
We hope to see you Saturday!
